The Core values of Faith Inspire are:

Spirituality

Be a godly people, because you teach the Book and study it.

3:79

What it means in practice:

We see the spirituality in every action we take and strive to purify our intentions. We strive to constantly grow and nourish our souls by gaining knowledge and sharing it with others.

Selflessness

Say, ‘Indeed my prayer and my worship, my life and my death are for the sake of God, the Lord of all the worlds.

6:162

What it means in practice:

Love towards God is about giving with everything we have. Sacrifice is an essential part of the spiritual journey and coming close to Allah, as exemplified by Ibrahim in his submission to God. This is why when faced with difficulties and challenges, we put our team, our community and our fellow human beings first rather than our own ego or self-interest.

Teamwork

And hold firmly to the rope of Allah, all together, and do not become divided

3:103

What it means in practice:

We work together in a collaborative spirit harnessing companionship. Everyone has a role to play and everyone’s contribution is valued. We also seek to build unity within the broader Muslim community and those of other faiths and no faiths on matters of common good.

Justice

O you who believe, stand firm in upholding justice and be witnesses for Allah, even if it is against yourselves or parents or relatives

4:135

What it means in practice:

Justice is a central pillar in Islam. We are encouraged to speak the truth, stand up for justice, take responsibility for ourselves, our families and the wider global community.

Leadership

“Every one of you is a shepherd (leader) and each one of you is responsible for his or her flock (people)”

Sahih Bukhari

What it means in practice:

We take responsibility for ourselves and our communities and show courage to lead wherever we are – guided by our core values and principles.
