The work of The Aafia Foundation is rooted in a verse from The Noble Qur’an, Stand firmly for justice as witnesses to ALLAH (God Almighty) even if it is against yourselves…and a well known oral tradition of the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him).

The oral tradition reads: “When you see an evil action you must change it with your hand; if you cannot do so, with your tongue; if you cannot do so, with your heart - [but know] that is the weakest degree of faith.

The plight of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui is at the top of our organizational agenda; however, this oppressed Muslim woman is not our only concern. We have many others.

“Charity is for the needy who are too engaged in the Cause of ALLAH to move about in the land for work. Those unfamiliar with their situation will think they are not in need of charity because they do not beg. You can recognize them by their appearance. They do not beg people persistently. Whatever you give in charity is certainly well known to ALLAH. Those who spend their wealth in charity day and night, secretly and openly - their reward is with their Lord; there will be no fear for them, nor will they grieve.”

(Surah 273-274)
