Welcome to

Muslimahs United

About us

We are a Grassroots organization comprised of sisters from Portland Oregon and Washington. We serve sisters throughout Pacific Northwest. Before the formation of Muslimahs United sisters knew each other from the Masjids, and the local muslim community.

We’ve been a group that Muslims sisters can turn to when other organizations or agencies can’t or are no longer able to help. We have been a resource for connection, networking, and inspiration for positive change in our communities. 

Hidaya Project

 The purpose of Hidaya project is too uplift and support Muslim women in their time of need. Some of the issues that women are facing include: Hate Crimes, islamophobia, Domestic Violence, Interpersonal Violence, Homelessness, Racism, and the compounding combination of all of these factors.

We have been a group that Muslim sisters can turn to when organizations or agencies can’t or are no longer able to help. Our goal is to uplift our community and help it thrive by offering multiple ways of support to empower and lead women in our community facing these issues. We have recently raised funds through our grassroots efforts, and this has allowed us to increase the number of women we can support at one time.
