About Islamic Institute
The Islamic Institute inspires and facilitates the development of grassroots Muslim political movements that are economically conservative. The Institute is a membership-based nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, founded in 1998 to initiate these goals: Create a better understanding between the American Muslim community and the political leadership. Provide a platform to promote an Islamic perspective on domestic issues (social and fiscal) to help enhance the Muslim community’s input in the decision-making process. Cultivate and expand Muslim activists and mobilize the community at the state and federal levels on issues affecting the American Muslim community. Run aggressive campaigns to help increase the American Muslim participation in the electoral process. Introduce traditional American values to the Muslim community and traditional Islamic teachings and values to decision-makers.
