ARISE stands for Action for Revert Integration Support & Education and is a non-profit organisation based in the UK.
Our commitments are deeply rooted in keeping up our duty to Allah (swt). This involves serving those whom Allah (swt) has called towards Him, such as new Muslims, propagating the Truth to those seeking it within Islam, and those who are non-practising Muslims who want to rediscover their faith. We believe that this, in turn, should also enrich the rest of the Muslim community, and prepare the grounds for our awaited Imam Al-Mahdi (atf) to arise.
ARISE was founded by a new Muslim sister who having embraced Islam in June 2014, had recognised the lack of support for new Muslims. ARISE was later established in November 2015 by a small group of passionate new Muslim volunteers in London and Manchester. We are now a team made up of an advisory board of reverts and born Muslims of various years of experience from across the UK and worldwide.
We understand what it is like to have newly embraced the beautiful religion of Islam, and together with our own experiences, we strive to do all we can in our capacity to support as many new Muslims through this exciting, yet sometimes challenging time, including those who are still seeking the knowledge they need towards embracing Islam.
As an organisation based in the UK, we have the unique advantage of being well acquainted with communities of many different cultures, races, faiths and backgrounds, as well as the wider Muslim community. We are therefore in a position of great responsibility of putting into practice the unity that Allah (swt) expects from us and has stated in the Holy Qur’an:
‘O mankind! Indeed We created you from a male and a female and made you nations and tribes that you may identify with one another. Indeed the noblest of you in the sight of Allah is the most Godwary among you. Indeed Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.’ Holy Qur'an 49:13
As a result, we are delighted to welcome you to our website designed especially for you, and hope that you will benefit from all of our services and provisions. Please feel free to contact us any time you are in need of further assistance, or require more information. We would also be grateful to hear about any feedback and suggestions you may have that will help us improve our services to you and other new Muslims.
