What We Stand For

     1. Identity: We accept as Muslim anyone who identifies as such.

     2. Equality: We affirm the equal worth of all human beings, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, nationality, creed, sexual orientation, or ability.

     3. Separation of Religious and State Authorities: We believe that freedom of conscience is not only essential to all human societies but integral to the Qur'anic view of humanity (see Qur’an 2:256

     4. Freedom of Speech: We support freedom of expression and freedom of dissent.

     5. Universal human rights: We affirm our commitment to social, economic and environmental justice

     6. Women’s Rights: We support women’s agency and self-determination in every aspect of their lives.

     7. Lesbian and Gay Rights: We endorse the human and civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex individuals.

     8. Critical Analysis and Interpretation: We call for critical engagement with Islamic scripture.

     9. Compassion: We affirm that justice and compassion should be the guiding principles for all aspects of human conduct.

     10. Diversity: We embrace religious pluralism and the diversity of inspirations that motivate people to embrace social justice.

     The MPV Logo is derived from these values, as it revolves around a tree with ten branches. Each branch of the tree represents MPV's ten principles rooted in Islam.
