Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA) is an organization committed to Muslims issues and concerns that especially impact indigenous Muslims—issues and concerns that we feel have been largely neglected. With the launch of this web site we are inviting masjids, organizations and individuals to join MANA.
MANA's projects are vehicles through which we manifest our stated mission and goals. Our mission is to pursue an agenda that reflects the points of view and experiences of the indigenous Muslims of North America and addresses their needs and aspirations. Our goals are to:
Establish the strong presence of viable, healthy and dynamic Muslim communities, neighborhoods and institutions that meet the religious, social, economic and political needs of the Muslims in this land;
Call humanity actively and systematically to the life-giving message of Islam with wisdom and beautiful teaching;
Command justice, the doing of good and giving to kith and kin and to forbid immorality, evil and oppression;
Advocate and work for just and righteous remedies to ills impacting North American society in general and Muslims in particular;
Promote Islamic unity and tolerance between Muslims based on the recognition of the great breadth and diversity within the wide-path of Sharīʿah.
Thus, have We made of you an Ummat justly balanced, that ye might be witnesses over the nations, and the Messenger a witness over yourselves; and We appointed the Qibla to which thou wast used, only to test those who followed the Messenger from those who would turn on their heels (From the Faith). Indeed it was (A change) momentous, except to those guided by Allah. And never would Allah Make your faith of no effect. For Allah is to all people Most surely full of kindness, Most Merciful.
