Strengthening our communities and Ummah through the principles or Islam

As inheritors of sacred knowledge, Imams and Scholars of the English speaking nations from diverse theological and jurisprudential backgrounds have agreed to cooperate on mutual productive work. We live in a global village and Muslims from all over the world face similar challenges in their religion and life. Although the various scholarly councils and boards will have divergent methodologies in how they approach issues – pursuant to their local context, they are united in vision. It is with this vision of unity and collective work that a new vibrant and empathetic approach is needed. This new approach needs to be informed by the Islamic orthodoxy and traditional principles and values within the framework of Islam.

GLOBAL IMAMS AND SCHOLARS COUNCIL

Strengthening our communities and Ummah through the principles or Islam

Our primary purpose is to strive for the spiritual, social, ethical and intellectual betterment of the Ummah through humility, integrity, decency and service.  In our conduct with others, we seek to emulate the sublime character of the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) anchored in a shared sense of humanity and universal values.

We benchmark ideas, thoughts, practices, and worldviews on Islam’s broad epistemological and ontological framework rooted in revelation and the Sunnah of the Prophet. We respectfully acknowledge the nuanced differences and views that enrich mainstream Islam’s legacy of thought and tradition. 

We maintain that diversity of affiliation – whether to groups (Jama’ah), parties, institutions, cooperations or organisations – should never be a barrier to mutual support and collaboration towards the Muslim community and nation (Ummah).
