The Nawawi Foundation supports the work of the noted American Muslim scholar Dr. Umar Faruq Abd-Allah and his vision of building a successful American Muslim cultural identity.
This vision is based on Dr. Abd-Allah’s extensive knowledge and expertise in the fields of Islamic studies and the history of Islam in America.
The Foundation increases American Islamic cultural and religious literacy by publishing literature and creating life experiences through traveling abroad. The Foundation’s writings are respected by academics, accepted in traditional circles, and easily accessed and understood by the public.
Our organized international cultural-immersion trips provide fun-with-learning opportunities for American Muslims to recognize and appreciate their role in the American and global Muslim communities.
