Ramadan Mubarak. May Allah guide and help us during this blessed month of Ramadan. The Lamppost Education Initiative (Lamppost) seeks your help in continuing the Islamic educational services we have provided for 17 years. Over the years, your support has provided essential Islamic traditional knowledge to Muslims all over the world. The Lamppost Education Initiative is devoted to giving Muslim-American scholars and teachers an intellectual platform to address our religious concerns to English-speaking Muslims worldwide. We are committed to tackling challenging issues that confront our community and providing rich insights based upon scholarly rigor that is committed to the epistemological foundation of the Qur’an and the Sunnah of our Prophet (saws)
This year, Lamppost, more than ever, your support is needed. Our goal is to raise $50 000 during this month of Ramadan.
We are embarking on the following new projects to meet the needs of our community.
1. The 2021 Ramadan Reflections and Recitation Series
This wide range of Muslim scholars and teachers will be participating with this Ramadan in a series of talks about the 25 Prophets in the Qur’an, and we will have Qur’anic recitations from Muslim youth and others.
2. The Muslim Funeral Guide
Lamppost will be releasing this work during this month of Ramadan, and we plan to distribute many copies of this work FREE as a resource for non-Muslims and Funeral Directors all over the country. More details are coming soon.
3. The Fourth Annual Black American Muslim Conference
We intend on conducting this conference later this year with an emphasis on economic development.
4. Connecting Our Youth with the Qur’an: A Youth Retreat
We are planning a unique retreat for Muslim youth to help young Muslim boys better understand how the Qur’an guides them to manhood. The retreat will also include archery, self-defense, hiking, and more. Click HERE for more details on this retreat.
5. Controversial Issues with Marriage and Divorce
Lamppost plans a series of talks, articles, and seminars to address current issues related to marriage and divorce. One post-Ramadan course we are offering is “The Married Life in Light of Imam Malik’s Muwatta,” taught by Dr. Abdullah bin Hamid Ali.
More details will be coming soon on these projects and more of our efforts to provide much-needed Islamic educational services for our community.
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, the United Kingdom, and all over the globe. The COVID-19 crisis has made our struggle to sustain our operations all the more difficult. Please support the Lamppost Education Initiative during this blessed month of Ramadan. Please help us reach our modest goal of $50 000 during this month to provide Islamic educational services our community needs.

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.
