Take A Stand: Introducing Muslim Men Against Domestic Abuse

Please visit our website www.mmada.org, sign our pledge, and spread the word far and wide. Also, please join our Facebook group: www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=79932444656.

Muslim Men Against Domestic Abuse (MMADA) is an organization dedicated to domestic tranquility. By joining our group, you make a commitment never to engage in, support, or remain silent about the physical, psychological, and emotional abuse of Muslim and non-Muslim women and children.

We aim to provide educational resources and serve as a tool for advocacy and counseling. Recognizing that domestic abuse is merely a symptom of much larger social, institutional, and individual pathologies, we seek to identify and eradicate its root causes. We do so with the belief that our religion calls us to stand for justice and reject all forms of oppression.

Despite our focus on women and children, we recognize that the victims of domestic abuse include men, and that this is a phenomenon that should not be ignored or overlooked. And though we are an organization comprised of men, we reject the notion that men are the exclusive arbiters of morality.

We pray that our intention in establishing this organization is not to please any particular audience, but rather to work toward the betterment of society for the sake of God alone.
