YOU Care

A core aspect of our work at Youth of Ummah revolves around community service. We believe in serving God through serving the people. Our youth leagues have community project requirements integrated into the programs. Through the use of Mu’mineen system, we require our youths to participate in community projects.

It was related on the authority of Abu Hurairah, radiyallahu ‘anhu, that the Prophet, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, said:

“Whoever relieves from a believer some grief pertaining to this world, Allah will relieve from him some grief pertaining to the Hereafter. Whosoever alleviates the difficulties of a needy person who cannot pay his debt, Allah will alleviate his difficulties in both this world and the Hereafter.” [Muslim]

The essence of Islam is to bring service to mankind. YOU Care is dedicated to servicing the community and actively lending a helping hand. We believe in fulfilling our duties as Muslims by helping not only our families and friends but our neighbors and other members of our communities as well. One cannot love Allah without having love for the ummah, and one cannot be a true believer until he wants for his brother what he wants for himself. Our mission is to engage in dawah through character-something that our Prophet Sws was known for. We build bridges by collaborating with other organizations that are just as passionate about civic service as we are.
