The Islamic Society of Milwaukee has a strong commitment to providing community services and we are always looking for new ideas or opportunities where our members can help others.
An important part of our religious tradition is serving the community, especially those who are in need.
In one verse of the Muslim scripture, the Qur’an, we are told, “Have you seen the one who rejects religion? That is the one who shuns the orphan and does not encourage feeding the needy.” (Quran 107:1-3)
A tradition of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) states, “He is not a believer who eats his fill while his neighbor remains hungry.”
Muslims are encouraged to work with others, regardless of religious differences, for the common good. The Qur'an tells us to, “…Cooperate with one another for virtue and piety and do not cooperate with one another for sin and transgression…” (Quran 5:2)
