Domestic Violence

     What you can do:
  • Know that Allah has given women the right to be respected and that abuse has no place in Islam.
  • Educate yourself on this subject to help yourself become strong and get out of your abusive situation or help others that you know are being abused.
  • Take others serious if they confide in you about their problems and get involved.
  • Ask your Mosque/Islamic center to provide support for people who are being abused, to provide lectures on this subject.
  • Let your family/friends know that you're being abused; keeping silent about it will only help the abuser and not you!
  • In a crisis,always call the emergencynumber. 
  • Turn to Allah for help....without Him we are lost.
