This organization is against Islam and the teachings of our beloved prophet Muhammad sallahu alahyi wa salam.

Growing up Muslim in America was not easy. The split between the ideals of freedom, tolerance and inclusion we were taught in school; and the conservativism of the Islamic communities we participated in; created a paradox that made us feel schizophrenic. Today Muslims for Progressive Values is leading the way to show a new generation of Muslim-Americans that there is no contradiction between the values of our faith, and the values of our homeland. This can only lead to a stronger, broader and more integrated Muslim community in the US, and ultimately the world.

MPV says the things that no one wants to say--either because of fear or apathy. This organization provides information and support for Muslims as individuals, bringing together one of the most diverse groups of constituents of any Muslim organization. I'm grateful for the courage and hard work of the founders and those who support the MPV mission through participation, volunteering and donation.

MPV is a wonderful place for muslims, converts, and those interested in learning about Islam in an open and diverse manner. While the views of some members (even the ones of admins) might put you off, it is great to knwo that their views and your own can be heard and expressed in an open forum without fears of negativity.

Through the presence of MPV, I was able to realize that a rich, viable community that is female-friendly, LGBTQI-positive, and socially progressive does indeed exist within Islam. This gave me the courage to make the momentous decision to convert -- a decision I had been putting off for some time and which likely never would have been reached had it not been for MPV.
