MPV’s mission is to embody and be an effective voice of the traditional Qur’anic ideals of human dignity, egalitarianism, compassion and social justice.
MPV envisions a future where Islam is understood as a source of dignity, justice, compassion and love for all humanity and the world.
WHO WE ARE
We are part of a global community of Muslims, the first ever MPV was set up in the USA in 2007. Since then there have been chapters opening all over the world.
In Australia MPV is a thriving community of Muslims that believe in Islam as a source of human rights, compassion and social dignity. We aim to establish and nurture vibrant Muslim communities across the country by creating opportunities for religious discourse, volunteer and community activities, and cultural events bringing together the arts, spirituality and social activism.
MPV is a progressive Muslim voice on contemporary issues. We voice our perspectives by participating in civil discourse, engaging with the media and government entities, and by partnering with both Muslim and non-Muslim progressive organizations.
We promote theologically-sound frameworks for Islamic liberalism. We seek to reinvigorate the Islamic tradition of ijtihad (critical engagement and interpretation of sacred texts) and intellectual discourse. We do this by collaborating with religious scholars and developing position papers on theological issues that are accessible to a wide audience.
