Doing service for humanity is one of the greatest ways we can show our devotion to God. All of the revealed scriptures place great emphasis on helping others. In Islam, helping others and solving their problems is not only an important virtue, it is also a profound act of worship. It is a means of righteousness that promotes peace on Earth and allows us to earn God’s eternal reward in the Hereafter.

Hazrat Abû Hurayrah quotes the Prophet (peace be upon him) as saying: “A man was going on his way when he saw brambles in the path. He moved these out of the way. Allah so esteemed his virtuous act that He granted him forgiveness.” (Sahih Muslim)

All MRU members are PSIRA and SASSETA accredited. A detailed process occurs where every potential applicant is vetted, screened and trained. None of the MRU members have criminal records or any ITC judgements.
