Following Prophetic Guidance: We remain guided by the timeless values and teachings provided by the revelations contained within the Qur’an and prophetic example, most specifically:
Social Justice (Adl): Our work is founded on enabling people and institutions to fulfil the rights of people who are poor and vulnerable. We work to empower the dispossessed towards realising their God-given human potential and developing their capabilities and resources.
Sincerity (Ikhlas): In responding to poverty and suffering, our efforts are driven by sincerity to God and the need to fulfil our obligations to humanity.
Excellence (Ihsan): Our actions in tackling poverty are marked by excellence in our operations and conduct which is deserving of the people we serve.
Compassion (Rahma): We believe the protection and well-being of every life is of paramount importance and we shall join with other humanitarian actors to act as one in responding to suffering brought on by disasters, poverty and injustice.
Custodianship (Amana): We uphold our duty of custodianship over the earth, its resources and the trust people place in us as humanitarian and development practitioners to be transparent and accountable.
Inspired by our Islamic faith and guided by our values, we envisage a caring world where communities are empowered, social obligations are fulfilled and people respond as one to the suffering of others.
