MuslimMatters began in 2007 as a collaborative effort between various bloggers and Muslim religious leaders to bring attention to issues faced by Muslims, especially in the West. By the grace of Allah and with the help of our diverse writers, readership loyalty, content production and annual hits, we have become one of the top Muslim blogs in the Western hemisphere. Today, Muslim Matters wants to thank you for your continued support and for your part in helping us reach this milestone. We, the leadership and writers of MuslimMatters, have one simple vision: to please Allah (subhanahu wata'ala) by providing a platform for orthodox thought leaders to affect positive change. Our mission is to make MuslimMatters a safe, online community which discusses relevant issues and shares practical solutions, shaped by the experiences and viewpoints of its writers. The MM family spans four different continents and includes Muslim religious leaders, students of knowledge, business professionals, PhD students, biologists, social workers, chemists, medical students, psychologists, journalists, engineers, and PR experts. It is our aim to provide content which is not only beneficial and high quality, but that will also surpass your expectations, insha'Allah. We hope you will be a part of our community whether it is by reading and sharing the content or by joining the discussions on our various platforms.
