Event Details

Living Islam with Purpose

 

A follow up to Dr. Abd- Allah’s earlier paper paper Islam and the Cultural Imperative, which addressed the necessity of establishing an authentic indigenous Muslim cultural presence in America. Living Islam with Purpose complements that paper by offering an operational framework for accomplishing the task. This framework consists of “five operational principles,” which are discussed at length and illustrated with examples:

 

• Trusting reason
• Respecting dissent
• Stressing societal obligation
• Setting priorities
• Embracing maxims

 

These five principles are central to the Islamic tradition and embody the practical wisdom and consummate sensibility of the Prophetic teaching. The paper emphasizes the need for American Muslims as a whole to become directly involved in their self-definition and the construction of their future as individuals and communities. This task cannot be left to others or to chance; the five operational principles provide an invaluable resource for determining the way forward. Living Islam with Purpose focuses on the American Muslim community but is relevant to Muslims everywhere, especially those in the West.

Mission

Ta’leef Collective provides the space, content and companionship necessary for a healthy understanding, embrace and realization of Islam.

About Ta’leef Collective

Ta’leef Collective began as an outreach program in 2002 and was born into a 501c3 (72-1528691) nonprofit organization in 2009.

We serve seekers actively interested in Islam and converts to the faith, assisting them in realizing a sustainable conversion to and practice of Islam.  Ta’leef Collective also strives to reengage the growing number of disenfranchised and often marginalized Muslim young adults.

Because we recognize the importance of these groups, and the intersection between them, we offer a model tailored specially for them.  By providing alternative social and sacred space, culturally relevant programming and positive companionship, we assist our beneficiaries in holistically practicing Islam in a way that is reconcilable with their social context.  We are a collective of teachers, volunteers, and peers who understand firsthand the challenge of living as Muslims in the west and we strive to provide the necessary means to facilitate that reality.

Support

Ta’leef Collective is a 501c3 (72-1528691) public benefit nonprofit organization.  We are zakat eligible as well.  All donations are tax-deductible.
