Dar-us-Salaam believes the most comprehensive vehicle to respond to the challenges facing Muslims in America is to establish a living, model Islamic community on the foundations of revelation – the Qur’an and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu ‘alyhi wa sallam.

A united community guided and inspired by revelation builds institutions to implement Islam at a practical level.

The prophetic mission began with Allah telling the Muslim to “read” (Surah Al-’Alaq:1), so Dar-us-Salaam laid the foundation of its community building mission with the establishment of Al-Huda School in 1995, an accredited pre-K through 12th grade full-time school considered by many to be one of the best Islamic schools in the nation.

Over the next 15 years, Dar-us-Salaam continued building institutions to serve as pillars of the new community such as a full-time hifz school, a nationally recognized newspaper, a daycare, a martial arts academy, an Islamic university, a da’wa office, a social welfare office, a zakat institute, a funding development office, a publishing company, a grocery store, a medical clinic, and one of the most active and forward thinking masajid in United States. All of these institutions make up the structure of the Dar-us-Salaam community; committed believers seeking to serve Allah make up its heart.

When Muslims build institutions to address the needs of society, managing them according to revealed principles, the resulting community becomes a brilliant example of Islam in practice. Actions speak louder than words, and collective actions done at a community level can’t be ignored. The community built and guided by revelation attracts seekers of truth and proves the truth of Islam. Such a community not only does da’wa – it is da’wa.

Dar-us-Salaam is striving to be that community.
