Mission Statement

Ma’ruf is a Muslim organization that advocates social justice by serving individuals, families, and communities in need. As the nation faces staggering economic and social crises, Ma’ruf aims to put its faith into action by being a beacon of justice, and a model for human service.

Description

Activism

Ma’ruf’s model is designed to instill habitual volunteering by providing the model and channels needed to steer activists into the realm of humanitarianism. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "The most beloved deeds to Allah are those performed continuously, even if they are small." Ma’ruf recruits only the best, most efficient, and highly skilled organizers to lead its projects, developing the most ideal platforms for channeling in volunteers from the greater community.

To date, Ma’ruf is accredited with building a rich portfolio of activism, from neighborhood cleanups to food, clothing and book drives-from creating survival kits for the homeless and distributing them, conducting college and corporate tours to instill hope amongst inner-city youth, and building homes for the impoverished, to creating a community reentry program to help rehabilitated individuals develop professionally and find jobs, to helping the elderly prepare for the winter and spring by winterizing their homes, raking their leaves, and helping with gardening. Ma’ruf is in a steady pursuit of bright and energetic volunteers who are committed to Ma’ruf’s motto of putting faith into action.

Social Justice

'O you who believe, stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even if it be against yourselves, your parents, your relatives, and whether it be against rich or poor." (The Holy Qur’an 4:135)

To better serve those in need, Ma’ruf concentrates its efforts on communities that lack socio-economic resources for competitive development in society--particularly the socially disenfranchised populations void of quality education, jobs, and community development.
