VISION, MISSION, AND PURPOSE
To promote peace and justice according to the model of religious pluralism and interfaith friendship established by the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him and his progeny, in his Covenants, his Treaties, his Letters, his Sunnah, and the Holy Qur‘an.
The mission of the Covenants of the Prophet Foundation is to disseminate, support the study of, increase public knowledge of, and demonstrate the contemporary social and legal relevance of, the covenants, letters and treaties of the Prophet Muhammad with various other faith communities of his time, especially the Peoples of the Book—Christians, Jews, Samaritans, and Zoroastrians—thereby promoting a tolerant, traditional, civilizational, classical, and universal Islam; supporting Islamic unity; improving inter- and intra-faith relations; defending human rights and dignity through scholarship, engagement, and interfaith activism; and facilitating cooperation between the faiths in order to maintain their integrity in the face of the increasing secularization, marginalization and politicization of religious communities and institutions. The Foundation will work to infuse these efforts with a wider understanding of the sacred traditions of the human race, understood not primarily according to authoritarian dogmatism—though dogma certainly has its place—but above all according to compassion, wisdom and inspiration, thereby placing them in line with the outlook of the Holy Qur’an, as demonstrated by such rulings as “There is no compulsion in religion” (2:256) and “Verily! Those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians, and Sabians, whoever believes in God and the Last Day and does righteous good deeds shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve” (2:62).
