Organizer Ta'leef Collective

Organizer of Being Muslim with Dr. Will Caldwell

Ta’leef Collective began as Zaytuna Institute’s Outreach program in 2002 and was born into an independent organization in 2005 per the request of Zaytuna’s leadership. Ta’leef Collective provides the space, content and  companionship necessary for a healthy understanding, embrace and realization of Islam.   Ta’leef Collective primarily serves seekers actively interested in Islam and converts to the faith, assisting them  in realizing a sustainable conversion to and practice of Islam, and a healthy, gradual integration into our greater Muslim community.  Ta’leef Collective also strives to reengage the growing number of disenfranchised and often marginalized Muslim young adults.
