Why you should support the Lamppost Education Initiative’s End Of The Year Fundraising Drive
“As you know, Lamppost is known for our efforts of providing moral clarity in times of confusion, courage in times of fear, and discipline in times of chaos. And these are definitely times of confusion, fear, and chaos. Of course, taking on such challenges isn’t always easy, especially when you lack the financial independence to publicly brave difficult topics, particularly when society is becoming increasingly polarized and intolerant of diverse ideological perspectives.”
Dr. Abdullah bin Hamid Ali, Founding Director of the Lamppost Education Initiative
The Lamppost Education Initiative (Lamppost) needs your help more than ever. At, Lamppost, our goal is to raise 20,000 dollars for the end of this month to keep our operations going for 2022.
Lamppost is one of the few Muslim organizations to give a platform for our scholars who are opposed to the COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Staying consistent with our core values of providing moral clarity, Lamppost has provided our readers with ample evidence from our Islamic sources to provide religious exemption from mandated vaccinations.
We have helped facilitate the efforts of our founder, Dr Abdullah Ali in helping many Muslims who exercise their right to refuse the jab and keep their jobs by demonstrating Islamic-based evidence that supports refusing vaccines. Many Muslims have used Dr. Abdullah Ali’s template for the Islamic reasoning for religious exemption. We have also provided a platform for other Muslim scholars who have a different perspective from the dominant narrative on COVID-19. A narrative that has been censored in the mainstream media sources. See our Balancing the Conversation Series with Dr. Mazen Atassi, Dr. Abdullah Ali, and Dr. Syed Haider
(Please note while the Lamppost Education Initiative has provided a platform for our scholars, we have not, as an organization, taken any ‘anti-vaccine’ stance.)
This year Lamppost has also published numerous works, conducted a special youth camp, and conducted a number of exclusive online seminars and workshops. Visit our website to see our activities and efforts throughout this year of 2021.
We need your help to continue the efforts in Islamic education in 2022.
There are three ways you can help our efforts at Lamppost:
1. Your du’a: Please keep us in your du’a to Allah ta’ala that He guides and protects our efforts.
2. Donate: Your donations are critically important to continue the work we have consistently provided for more than 18 years. We plan to continue our efforts to do online and live seminars and workshops like the Black American Muslim Conference. In addition, we are in the planning stages for another ‘Connecting Our Youth With the Qur’an’ for young men and another special camp for young sisters. Insha’Allah, we will have more articles, books, and much more.
Please give generously and consider making your donations monthly. Every bit helps us continue our efforts to provide authentic Islamic knowledge for English-speaking Muslims across the globe.

Why should YOU Support the
Lamppost Education Initiative
Join the effort to provide our community with relevant, Islamic knowledge for Muslims in America. For years, Lamppost has been a small struggling organization providing vital services at low to no cost for thousands of English-speaking Muslims in the United States, Canada, and the UK.
We are underfunded in large part due to our adamant refusal to adopt or promote any concept or ideology that contradicts the Qur’an, the Sunnah of our Prophet (saws), and the consensus of our ulama as it relates to the normative, transparent mores of Islam.
Frankly, this means that Lamppost depends upon the donations of our Muslim community for support in the endeavor to educate and uplift humanity to the message of Islam.
