Request to Ratify MEC

MEC’s work preserves Islam by providing a consistency and integrity to the field of Islamic chaplaincy that is based on diverse but authentic understandings of Qur’an and Sunnah. In this regard, we strive to manifest the Qur’anic enjoinment and Prophetic traditions of consultation and consensus as also practiced by the four rightly guided caliphs. We serve to represent the diversity within the Muslim community throughout the United States.
