Our Mission

Our Mission

 

To provide current and formerly incarcerated men and women with Islamic education geared towards the refinement of their thinking and behavior while positioning them to transition to society more productively.

 

We offer Islamic correspondence courses at the post-secondary level to the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated through our Distance Learning Program. We have seen the transformative value of higher education and are wholeheartedly committed to establishing the process that enables our students to inherit a contributory role facilitating self-improvement and allowing them to reclaim a future, even beyond the walls of the prison.

What is “Tayba”?

 

“Tayba” is one of the many names of Medina, the Blessed City of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). Just as the city of Medina was rooted in ‘Ilm (knowledge), the Tayba Foundation aims to serve the educational needs of our communities. The Messenger of God (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “I was only sent as a teacher.” We realize his teachings by providing education and support to Muslim prisoners throughout the United States, meeting the needs of our community by educating the whole.
