About: Let’s Do Research

As a thought leader, Islamic Relief USA aims to engage society and all stakeholders–that’s you, that’s everyone–on critical subject matter, issues and trends impacting the humanitarian sector, humanity, the environment and beyond.

Why? Everyone has a necessary role in making the society we live in better.

Connecting Community: Society’s Stakeholder Seat

Everyone is a stakeholder and has a seat at the table.

Academic institutions, think-tanks, faith-based organizations, businesses (for & non-profit), community members and entities, government agencies, advocacy groups, students, professors, public servants, private industry professionals, volunteers, advocates, humanitarians, faith leaders are just some examples.

We encourage  involvement from everyone (local and global) as humanitarian  issues and positive impact are multisector, multidisciplinary, and vital to all people and the environment.

“O humanity! Indeed, We created you from a male and a female, and made you into peoples and tribes so that you may ˹get to˺ know one another. Surely the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous among you. Allah is truly All-Knowing, All-Aware.”
The Glorious Qur’an–49:13
