EnabledMuslim: A New Project Supporting Muslims Living with Disabilities

American Muslim Health Professionals

July 16, 2014

Bill Gaventa, M.Div., associate professor at Rutger's Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and formerly of N.J.'s University Center of Excellence on Developmental Disabilities, has been serving as a member and adviser on a Task Force initiated by the group American Muslim Health Professionals (AMHP).

They will soon launch an initiative called EnabledMuslim, an online community for spiritual and practical support for Muslims living with disabilities and loved ones.

It is an exciting effort, one that brings together a number of American Muslims who have begun to address supports within their faith community.

After conducting initial research regarding the needs of our community, they/we are launching a survey to help design a resource that better fulfills those needs.

If you know people who 1.) identify as Muslim and 2.) live with a disability or have a loved one living with a disability, please pass this information on to them and invite them to participate in the survey below.

The Task Force is hoping that people will complete the survey by July 24. For more information on the project, contact Maggie Siddiq at
