Welcome to the GCLEA Muslims for Justice page!
Our Prophet, Muhammad (peace be upon him), Allah said, "O my servants, I have forbidden myself from oppression and have likewise forbidden it for you so do not oppress one another" (Muslim).
In the Qur'an, Allah says "O You who believe, uphold justice and bear witness to God, even if it is against yourselves, your parents, or your close relatives. Whether the person is rich or poor, God can best take care of both. Refrain from following your own desire, so that you can act justly- if you distort or neglect justice, God is fully aware of what you do" (al-Nisa 3:135).
As people of faith, we believe this divine directive must be fulfilled and so, our mission is to,
Promote justice and act justly.
On this page, you will find a growing list of resources to help you better understand the issues of injustice that our communities, both locally and globally, struggle with.
We will also use this space to help share actionable steps you can take to promote justice and act justly in your community.
