Muslim Social Services

While social services incorporate a number of elements like counseling and dealing with issues as serious as sexual abuse and domestic violence, there is still misunderstanding about the need of such services for Muslims, especially in North America.

With this special page on Muslim Social Services, Sound Vision is providing practical tips to deal with some pressing problems in the Muslim community, whether you are a victim, a relative, a friend or an Imam and whether you live in the West or the East. You will encounter a fair amount of repetition amongst the tips-oriented articles. We invite you, experts and non-experts in the field of Muslim social services, to post your own comments and ideas in our forum on this topic with Sr. Shahina Siddiqui, executive director of the Islamic Social Services Association of the United States and Canada (ISSA). Let the awareness and dialogue begin.
