Our Values

Faith

We are driven by our faith in the Divine to serve others and benefit humanity.

Compassion

We are guided by the Quranic message of God’s mercy and compassion and by the example of Prophet Muhammad as a mercy for humanity.

Inclusivity

We believe in the universality of human rights, which means equity and social justice, with no restrictions or discrimination based on gender, religion, race, or any other man-made divisive labels. We aim to be actively inclusive and accepting of diversity among ourselves, as Muslim women, and between us and other members of society. We acknowledge that MWO is one voice amongst many who speak on behalf of Muslim women, and respect others that may represent differing perspectives.

Collaboration

We are committed to the development of partnerships with organizations and entities that share our values. We base these relationships on cooperation, trust, and respect. We sustain our partnerships through open, ongoing, and honest dialogue.

Creativity

We are resourceful, talented, and educated, and use our knowledge and experience to create innovative programs that benefit the community in unique and exceptional ways.
