Khidria, Inc. is a Wisconsin-based 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation.
From our mission statement:
(Our objectives are): To establish a religious organization to hold regular worship services and promote the teachings of Islam; to offer a place of worship for canonical prayer, dhikr, and retreat; and to conduct education and outreach on matters pertaining to Islam, especially with regard to urgent contemporary issues....
Along with promoting the teachings of Islam, a primary focus of the organization's educational mission will be to correct misunderstandings about Islam, including the spurious linkage between Islam and terrorism that has dominated public perceptions since 9/11/2001. To that end the organization will sponsor the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth and will co-sponsor the Madison Muslim Anti-Terror Pact and other educational efforts aimed at highlighting the fact that Islam and terrorism are incompatible...
The organization's (secondary focus) will be the planet's environmental crisis; (we) will promote responsible environmental behavior by showing how Islamic scripture and tradition mandate such practices, while also educating the general public about the contributions Islam can make to solving environmental problems.
Programs currently sponsored or co-sponsored by Khidria, Inc. include:
The Madison Muslim Dawa Circle (which is growing rapidly and in the process of establishing its own corporate 501c3 status)
The Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth
Muslims for 9/11 Truth
