An Islamic approach to health.
Shifa is a non-profit organization working to empower a global movement promoting faith-directed healthcare by establishing public education, research, and clinical work.
Shifa was founded to fill the gap between healthcare practices found in the Holy Quran and Sunnah and modern medicine. Our mission is to provide and disseminate information on a model of healthcare that is evidence-based, holistic, and patient-centred in accordance with the values of the Islamic faith. We believe this information should be shared by as many people as possible — regardless of belief.
Consistent with truths from the Holy Quran and Sunnah, research, public education seminars and clinical practice are intended for use by medical professionals from all backgrounds working as residents, medical students, nurse practitioners, physician and healthcare researchers. Shifa as an organization, and our public database is intended as a guide to public health optimization following a proactive approach to healing informed by an Islamic view of modern medical practices and knowledge.
