Volunteer to Help New Muslims

We need volunteers to help new Muslims transition into the Islamic way of life. The Buddy System pairs newly practicing Muslims with one or more buddies that will be responsible to keep in touch with them over the phone and, if possible, meet them in person. We will try to pair them based on location proximity so that it is easy for volunteers to meet them.

Volunteers will not be expected to make large time commitments. At the very least, you would only be required to volunteer a few minutes every other week to make a single phone call. Insha'Allah you will be equally rewarded for their good deeds for helping them in their transition to the Islamic way of life. Volunteers will also be given a short training session before being assigned. Please sign up for volunteering here:

If you are a converted Muslim, Non-Muslim or Newly Practicing Muslim who would like to be assigned a buddy, please contact
