Better Communities for All

We believe a better society for persons with disabilities is a better society for all.

MUHSEN provides a range of programs and services across North America to improve the experience within mosques, and engender positive communities for those with disabilities.

Our Story

Disability affects millions of people in the world today, with numbers that are only growing.

Today we are here for our loved ones living with disabilities, but tomorrow we may not be. There is a glaring need for the Muslim community to become better equipped for the people that are such a valuable part of our society. It was this absence of support in the Muslim community that led our founders Dr Omar Suleiman and Sr. Joohi Tahir to start MUHSEN (Read more about our founders in Who We Are).

Our Mission

Muslim communities where individuals with disabilities and their families are welcomed, supported, and included across the span of their lifetime.

Our Vision

Muhsen is a nonprofit organization serving families and individuals with intellectual, mental, and physical disabilities.

After extensive training, we perform background checks from third party companies in order to ensure the safety and peace of mind for all our families and teams.

The First of its Kind

Muhsen was founded due to the large need for support and education in the Muslim community that was not being met.
