Abrahamic Alliance
Abrahamic Alliance International is a movement of Jews, Christians and Muslims who are deeply committed to loving the God of our father Abraham with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and loving our neighbor as ourselves.
AAi envisions a world where children of Abraham unite to save lives; where Jews, Christians and Muslims enjoy peaceful coexistence and mutual appreciation as our faith is deepened by meaningful encounters with each other; where understanding, humility and respect replace ignorance, arrogance, and contempt; where diverse yet faithful worshippers of the God of Abraham move beyond dialog to cooperative action, loving our neighbor together until the hungry are fed, the naked are clothed, the sick receive care, and the orphan is raised with love, compassion and generosity. AAi envisions a world where God's faithfulness to bless all nations through Abraham's offspring is expressed in wonderfully new and creative ways through Jews, Christians and Muslims striving to obey all that the prophets have spoken.

Muzna Ansari & Haseeb Chowdhry

Being part of a strong Muslim community over the last twenty years, you can see the impact and evidence of hard work that our parents and those before us have made. Their initiatives pave the way with God's Grace, from wonderful mosques, schools, social justice and relief organizations for modern day institutions like American Muslim Civiic Leadership Initiative and American Muslim Fund to have a stong impact. Each day we continue to reap the rewards from seeds that were planted long ago with growing pains. Some of those pains still exist today, but we're better equipped to deal with them due to the sacrifices made.
To cultivate that growth, we like to support causes which uplift others from poverty, homelessness, hunger, domestic violence, and other issues, locally and globally. Living in New York, walking one block, you can see the vast differences in social equity. These experiences have built our character and often make us think of others, those less fortunate, and help us stay grounded, making sure we give back when we can. We are advocates for immigrant rights and are also involved with various Islamic education initiatives to maintain a connection to our rich tradition. What we have in our life is a blessing and we owe it to God to share that with others.
In this political climate, we want to create benefit to society through activism, advocacy, and charitable giving. That's why we donate to American Muslim Fund. It allows us to easily donate to one organization, vet other charities we want to support and make sure we create an impact uplifting Muslim voices.
