Rawdatul Muhibbeen (RM) is a startup nonprofit agency providing positive arts, recreational, educational and character-building activities for female Muslim youth in the Greater Twin Cities area. It was founded in August 2016 out of a recognized need from having a young Muslim daughter and from working with other Muslim girls to create and promote positive activities and outlets – outside of their homes and mosques – that would reinforce their Islamic values and culture in a broader and more diverse segment of our communities, along with the people and organizations that comprise them.
As a devoted Muslim practitioners of their Islamic faith, RM’s management knows and participates with a wide network of other Muslim families who also see and embrace an opportunity to seek more positive and progressive steps and programs to support and help their children to become happier and more productive. Our organization aims to integrate and develop Muslim female youth more broadly in ways that reinforce their religious practices while breaking barriers to become more comfortable in accepting and developing in positive and complementary ways within the social, civic and workforce fabric of Minnesota’s plural society.
