Our Mission

The Rahmah Foundation is an independent, educational organization that is committed to continuously designing retreats and educational programs that will address topics unique to Muslim women. Through the centuries, Muslims have preserved and protected the Quran and Sunnah through the rigorous Ijaza system of scholarly licensure and certification. The Rahmah Foundation realizes the critical need to safeguard Islam from extremism and deviation. Thus the foundation commits itself to selecting thoroughly qualified teachers — women who have studied and trained to meet exact criteria in both their knowledge and practice – to disseminate sacred knowledge to the rest of our sisters.

Our Programs

Spiritual and Emotional Development

Learn the tools of balancing life, emotional health and ibadah, and to gain proximity to Allah with this assortment of classes by Sister Hosai Mojaddidi, Ustadha Rania Awaad and Ustadha Amina Sayeed.
 

Monthly Khatim

A group khatim is a collaborative effort between fellow muslims to read the entire Qur’an monthly. Each member signs up for at least one chapter that they are responsible for reading that month. The concept of the group khatim has been a long-standing tradition in the muslim world and something we hope and pray we can bring to other sisters with love and sincerity.
