Family violence is a global issue that affects everyone. Project Sakinah is an initiative of Dar al Islam. It is an effort to stimulate awareness and action in the Muslim community to WAKE UP to the reality of the harm being done to our families, to learn to SPEAK UP in order to break the silence that surrounds the issue, and to TEAM UP with others to work to change our condition.
