Muslims for Progressive Values was established in the United States in 2007. Since then we have established chapters around the world, building communities of progressive Muslims who are courageously challenging social inequality, human rights abuses and discriminatory practices that have been perpetrated in the name of Islam.


Our Mission

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.

God enjoins justice, kindness and generosity
toward one’s fellow humankind.
— Quran - 16:90


MPV envisions Islam and an Islamic community that embodies the ten principles of MPV

MPV envisions a future where Islam is understood as a source of dignity, justice, compassion and love for all humanity and the world.


Muslims for Progressive Values - Australia aims to establish and nurture vibrant progressive Muslim communities across the country. We do this 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.

MPV promotes 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.
