Madina Institute Center for Non-violence and Peace Studies
We work to reclaim and reaffirm nonviolence, a foundational principle of Islam, as a pervasive lived reality for communities of peace across the world.
We work to create a world of strengthened universal values where people, communities and governments are invested in nonviolence as a foundational principle transforming people, places and power, for peace.
A Fundamental Principle
Every day, our people, processes and utilization of resources are guided by these core values and fixed firm beliefs underpinning our work.
Love of God and Love of creation
We believe in God and the love for all His creation. We are a faith based organization.
Reverance for the sancity for life
We believe that each life is sacred. Islam teaches us first and foremost that all of our fellow human beings, irrespective of religious, racial, ethnic, gender, or other differences have an inherent and immeasurable worth and dignity.
Equality in diversity
We believe that our radical equality before God leads us to think no less of another human for being “different”.
We work to educate and advocate for nonviolence and peace, promoting the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors that personify these purposes.
