MPACF’s vision is to provide Americans with an accurate understanding of Islam, and its mission is to engage in the research and development of issues related to human rights, democracy and pluralism; to educate all Americans regarding the teachings of Islam; and to serve the Muslim American community by promoting the Islamic values of mercy, justice, peace, human dignity, freedom, and equality for all.
