Nafisah is the sisters wing of ISRA Foundation.
Nafisah was established to create a community where women are empowered, loved, supported, and accepted. We want to create a space where our sisters know that support is available when they are confused about certain aspects of their life, or if they just want to connect with others on a more personal level! We ensure that the sisters have a safe environment to ask their questions and to give and receive support. We aim to achieve this through Instagram lives, zoom sessions, sister socials, and infographic Instagram posts. We hope to provide our sisters with a sense of community, and belonging at all times.
We are dedicated to creating a safe, judgment-free space for women where they are able to connect with Muslim women professionals, scholars, and other sisters for advice, questions, and discussions related to Islam and life.
Under this goal, we aim to create a united group of Muslimahs who can feel welcomed, wanted, and safe in their own community.
Jazak’Allah for joining us, we are so excited to start building this platform and getting to connect sisters together!
