All Muslims deserve an environment in which we can practice our faith without fear of exclusion or violence. We don’t believe it is asking too much to be uncompromisingly ourselves - as women, as queer and trans people, as “minority Muslims” - and still have a faith community we can come home to. It is more necessary than ever that all have safe access to the healing and empowering home that is rooted in principles of justice as detailed through Prophetic example and the truth of the holy Qur'an.

Masjid al-Rabia is a mosque, education/advocacy org and community hub in Chicago providing spiritual care for marginalized Muslims. We are a women centered LGBTQIA+ affirming organization based on the principles of accessibility, inclusivity, and uncompromising equality.

We live out our mission through local education and community building, and a thriving Prison Ministry.
With a small sustaining donation you can help ensure the reach and longitivtiy of this critical work. A SUSTAINING DONATION TO MASJID AL-RABIA WILL HELP:
  • Did you know we are the first women-centered mosque in the Americas to open an independent location? Your donation will help cover rent and maintenance fees so we can keep our doors open and continue to grow.
  • Allow our Prison Ministry to thrive. As the only program in the country that provides direct services to incarcerated LGBTQIA+ Muslims--with over a thousand participants worldwide--we send Qur'ans and Islamic materials, create original educational materials, provide outreach, and provide advocacy (both legal and spiritual) for queer and trans Muslims in prisons, detention centers and institutions across the US.
  • Keep up our beautiful website like: did you know those things cost money?
  • Support day-to-day office operations like covering printing cost for literature and keeping local events properly stocked with tea, coffee and snacks.
  • Maintain and expand the Masjid al-Rabia Library - a free resource including books on women in Islam, revered texts from minority sects, and feminist Qur'anic exegesis. Our Qur'an library includes translations in over a dozen languages. This free service is provided without late fees, and including services sending books to incarcerated queer & trans Muslims across the country.
  • Support Masjid al-Rabia volunteers - This is important, tireless work and every single member of the Masjid al-Rabia team works on a volunteer basis. Our dedicated volunteers keep up with administrative duties, run local events, and maintain our numerous educational programs. We believe every person should be compensated for this crucial work, but until we have a proper budget we are unable to compensate our team. Your support helps us reimburse volunteers for travel and material costs, and inshallah in time compensate our leaders and coordinators to make this movement truly sustainable.

Staying true to our belief in radical accessibility, we will never post content behind a paywall. As a Patreon supporter we will use this space to keep you informed on the numerous programs and events we run every month, with opportunities to let your voice be heard and even have a hand in the development of new projects. We ask that you commit to one dollar a month, but you are welcome to contribute as much as you are willing to donate. Your donation will go directly to services, programming and maintenance of this unique organization doing unprecedented work for marginalized Muslims. Can't make a monthly donation? Want to impart a one-time special gift? You can find our traditional donation page here.
