The application process has concluded.

This program is specifically designed for the indigenous American Muslim Community and aims to enhance American Muslim women’s religious education while providing a vehicle for cultural exchange between American Muslim women and Emirati women. This education will serve as the foundation for women's empowerment in decision making, both within the Muslim community and in mainstream society.

 

Program Overview


In 2007, the American Congress of Muslim Youth administered an Imams Training Program in the
United Arab Emirates. This training program was specifically designed for American Imams.
Program participants spent six-weeks in the United Arab Emirates where they learned Arabic,
principles of Islamic jurisprudence and family law, eradicating extremism and the proper way of
performing funeral rites. They were also engaged in a variety of media and cultural events.  

Due to the belief that American Muslim women need to undergo similar training, the American Muslim Women’s Leadership Training Program was established in 2008.
The goal of the American Muslim Women’s Leadership Training Program is to enhance American Muslim women’s religious education while
providing a vehicle for cultural exchange between American Muslim women and Emirati
women. This education will serve as the foundation for women's empowerment in decision
making, both within the Muslim community and in mainstream society.
