We believe that every human being is endowed by their Creator with unique abilities. Those with disability are no different; they just might need more time or some extra help from their friends in their journey towards a meaningful independent life. But their disability doesn't reduce their life's worth even a bit.
The faculties God has given us are a sacred trust. When they are used to serve those who may be less able, then they are truly being used in a righteous cause.
Allah (SWT) says in Surah Ibrahim Ayah 7
"If you are grateful, I would certainly give to you more, and if you are ungrateful, My chastisement is truly severe"
When man realizes the gifts bestowed on him by the Divine, he doesn't waste his time and effort on fruitless pursuits. Rather he deploys himself in service of those who are deprived of the gifts he possesses. When such like-minded, selfless people come together, the irresistible power of such noble hearts can be harnessed to achieve noble goals which would otherwise seem impossible.
Our goal is to reach out to such noble souls who can help us in our mission to empower those with disabilities.
