The American Congress of Muslim Youth is driven by the Qur'an:

O mankind! We have created you male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. The noblest of you, in sight of God, is the best in conduct. God Knows and is Aware. Al-Hujurat Surah 49:13

Our Mission is to work for a world of co-existence through inclusiveness and participation. As a member of diverse family of faiths, our efforts will be directed towards justice and equity to attain peace for the humankind with a firm grounding in commonly held values. No one should have advantages at the cost of others. Such benefits are temporary and deleterious to lasting peace. We believe what is good for Muslims has got to be good for the world, and vice versa, to sustain it. Indeed we aspire to promote goodwill amongst people of different affiliations, regardless of their faith, gender, race, nationality, culture or any other uniqueness blessed by the creator.

In our view, the tarbiya produces the personality of the “true Muslim activist” described by the Messenger, peace be upon him, when he said, “People are like a hundred camels, you can hardly find amongst them one rahila (one capable of sustaining energy throughout a long and arduous journey).” We want to produce al-Rawaahil. Our objective is that within 8-10 years all of the youth work is transferred to a new generation of du’aa who are part of the fabric of American society.
