On the Road to Sakinah
April Khutbah Campaign
We have already contacted more than 1000 imams nationwide in our campaign to address
child abuse and other parenting issues. We will continue to ask more imams and mosques
to address the issue in khutbahs and through organized community programs. Please
ask your imam to deliver at least one khutbah on child abuse. We’ve prepared a khutbah prep document for
you to download and print out before you go to meet him. Let us know how your meeting
went at firstname.lastname@example.org
Project Sakinah Heroes
are very excited about an upcoming new addition to our website: Project Sakinah
Heroes. This would be a page dedicated to pay tribute and say thank you to our leaders,
advocates and activists who have dedicated their lives to protect and to help improve
Muslim families through their profession, leadership, advocacy and community services.
Many of them have a track record of standing against violence within homes. This
section would include both Muslim men and women. Please take a moment and tell us
about a hero in your family or community. Email us at Heroes@projectsakinah.org.
and Legal Liabilities
“Ignorance is not bliss. Ignorance is not a defense. It is very important for
us to become aware of the legalities when we allow family violence to occur within
our families, to take place in our mosques. We have to be aware of our moral responsibilities
as well of our legal liabilities.”
