Piedad History

As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu! / Greetings of Peace,
Sisterhood in PIEDAD
(Piety/Taqwa)  is a network of women who are dedicated to serving Allah swt by spreading Al Islam to all as well as the Spanish speaking population to the USA.
“We work one-on-one with non-Muslim women, support new Muslims in their “evolution” and help one another in Islam. While doing so, we always bear in mind not to be judgmental, seeking knowledge from all that is good and honorable. We try to live each day as if it were our last and therefore, strive to win the hearts and minds of those that seek the answer to life in Al-Islam. We place humility and charity above all. We keep steadfast in our prayers and live ever mindful of Almighty Allah and praise Him in every moment of our lives on this Earth.”  Sr. Khadijah Rivera

PIEDAD, began as a support system for new Muslims from a Latino background in the mid 80’s. It was a grassroots effort early on. The organization sought to be inclusive of all, collaborating with other dawah organizations, without taking away that personal touch. Sr. Khadijah Rivera, was keen on helping the voiceless and was absolutely in touch with the common folk. Today, we are continuing the journey of faith-in-action and hope in the Promise, in shaa’Allah.

 

P.I.E.D.A.D continues its dawah mission by embarking on a non-profit mission of calling to Islam and helping sisters empower themselves in this world and in the hereafter through knowledge of deen and personal development programs.
