Asiyah Women's Center: Help Us Buy a House!

It's the last ten nights of Ramadan, and Layatil Qadr is rapidly approaching. What better way to honor this night than to get the reward of 1000+ months than to make a contribution to an organization that empowers Muslim women and children domestic violence survivors to rebuild there lives and wishes to buy a home for them?


Your donation will be used as a downpayment that we will put on a three-story home that we hope to acquire in the next few months-- it will allow us to serve at least 3x more women and children.


Who we are:


The Asiyah Women’s Center is the first Muslim women’s emergency shelter in New York City. Since we've opened we've sheltered over 175 women and children. Our mission is to provide temporary housing for victims of domestic violence and women facing eviction, and/or homelessness. By connecting under-resourced women in our community to job opportunities, a range of mental health and medical services, permanent housing facilities, health insurance and legal assistance, we hope to empower women to get back on their feet and overcome their deeply traumatic personal circumstances.


The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said “Your Heaven lies under the feet of your Mother” (Ahmad, Nasai).




What we do
Our center can house up to twenty women and children and is run by a trained female staff and a group of dedicated volunteers. The center ensures that all guests are cared for and are on a path to rebuild their lives. This will be done through:


1. Access to a safe, secure and comfortable living space
2. Counseling and therapy services
3. Checkups provided by physicians and licensed mental health professionals
4. Employment assistance
5. Fully stocked pantry of food and toiletries
6. Connecting students with university opportunities, GED’s, and enrolling students in schools
