New Association of Progressive Mosques Formed to Advance Islamic Reformation
Association of Inclusive Mosques seeks to alter the local Muslim communities by bringing Progressive Islam as an alternative voice to Orthodox Islam.
AIM will work closely with the Muslim Education Center for Creative Academics (MECCA), an institute that trains students to become certified faith leaders.
"AIM will take some of the MECCA graduates and place them in large cities around the country," said Imam Daayiee Abdullah, a renowned progressive leader and founder of both organizations. "Whereas MECCA educates the leaders AIM will partner with the trained leaders by educating the communities,"
Imam Abdullah founded MECCA in 2014 and has since secured support from Arcus Foundation. Having run progressive mosque in the past he says the community is ready for a more connected system of progressive mosques, and hopes a national organization exclusively focusing on local needs will be exactly what they had been waiting for.
"AIM will work with national and international bodies to bring support to the local communities,"
AIM will continue to develop alongside MECCA in the coming months.
