Pastoral Care and Counseling Referral Services

The much neglected focus of our community has been personal, family, behavioral, and mental wellness. A taboo topic by its nature; however, a difficult reality for many in our own community. Alhamdulillah, with all praises and thanks due to Allah, we are proud to announce our latest initiative, IAR Pastoral Care and Counseling Referral Services.

A group of qualified volunteers, Muslim health professionals, coming together to assist our community at large. We welcome volunteers & suggestions! Please email health@islam1.org.

"There is no disease that Allah has created, except that He has also created its treatment."
