About us

Since 2001, Akhuwat has been working for Poverty Alleviation

Akhuwat is a not-for-profit organization which was founded in 2001 on the Islamic principle of Mawakhat (مواخات) or solidarity. The concept of Mawakhat predates to 622 CE when Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) urged the residents of Medina (Ansars) to share half of their belongings with the Muhajirs (migrants) who were forced to flee persecution and migrated from Mecca to Medina.
Drawing inspiration from the generosity displayed by the Ansars, Akhuwat believes that if the same approach, where one affluent family embraces a less fortunate one is adopted today, inequality will be eradicated from the world. read more
