1,000 Strong For Sexual Health Education And Intervention Within The Muslim Community

1,000 Strong For Sexual Health Education And Intervention For The Muslim Community

We need 1,000 monthly supporters giving as little as $1 per day to help 1,000 Muslim teenagers receive a 4-week Islamic sexual education training at their local masjid.

Why Sexual Health Education And Intervention For Muslims

Young Muslims are not getting the proper education about sexual health at home or at their local mosque due to taboo. This absence in guidance is leading many Muslim youths to:

  • Pick up damaging ideas, unhealthy attitudes, and misunderstandings from porn, culture and peers that are damaging to self and others and stand in contradiction to Islam.
  • close
    Engage in sexual activity before marriage due to peer pressure or trying to fit in.
  • Become addicted to pornography and or be at risk for exposure to sexually transmitted diseases due to experimentation.
  • Experience relational and sexual problems at the time of marriage that may lead to divorce.

Expecting our Muslim youth with their natural desires and curiosity around sex to navigate through societal pressures, and be successful in their future relationships, on an Islamic education that amounts to "sex outside of marriage is haram" is a huge disservice to them and to our communities.

Who We Are And What We Want To Do About It

We are a team of Muslim social and tech entrepreneurs, mental health professionals, and relationship experts that brought you Purify Your Gaze.

Over the course of nine years and seeing our work reach and support 57,000 Muslims impacted by pornography addiction we've uncovered a staggering statistic from one of our research studies with 1,024 participants...

82% of those exposed to pornography never spoke to an adult in their life about it or were spoken to about sexuality from an Islamic perspective or the harms of pornography.  

It's due time we stop young Muslims from becoming another statistic and we openly engage and educate them on sexual well being grounded within our Islamic values and traditions. 

It's due time that we embrace their curiosity and answer the questions that they have on sexual, relational and reproductive health.

We want to change that which is why we are launching the 1,000 Strong campaign, an initiative focused on these three main themes:

Counseling And Support For Muslims Impacted By Pornography Addiction

Outreach To Islamic Schools And Mosques With Training For Educators And Youth Leaders

Research, Publishing, And Promotion Of Original Content 
On Sexual Health For Muslims

Our Specific Goals With This Campaign

  • Outreach to Islamic schools and mosques in United States, Canada, Britain, and Australia to conduct on the ground needs assessment and study of Muslim youth and their challenges, concerns, frustrations around sexual health education.
  • Provide a vehicle for Muslim youth to anonymously ask their personal questions and to be answered back.
  • Engage Muslim mental and relational health professionals and Muslim scholars to produce top quality, evidenced based videos and material answering the questions of Muslim youths around sexual, relational, and mental well being that are grounded within Islamic traditions. 
  • Train religious educators and youth leaders at Islamic schools and mosques to facilitate sexual health education discussions and know how to screen for addictions to pornography.
  • Put together a comprehensive 4 week course on sexual health, healthy relationships, abuse prevention to be utilized by Muslim youth groups with guided discussion prompts and online study material.
  • Provide comprehensive professional support to Muslim youths and families impacted by pornography addiction.

To achieve our goals at the scale of impact and the continued timeline we need 1,000 monthly supporters giving at least $30 per month this next year.
