Did You Know...

  • Accessibility and inclusion of people with disabilities are fundamental rights in Islam. People with disabilities want their right to basic human dignity, not pity.
  • Today, there is a tremendous lack of awareness and understanding of accessibility among our Muslim communities although people with disabilities were fully included at the time of our beloved prophet.
  • Over one billion people, approximately 15 percent of the world's population, live with some form of disability.
  • The Muslim world population in 2010 was estimated at 1.62 billion.
    Therefore, the population of Muslims with disabilities in 2010 was about 243 million.
  • People with disabilities are the world's largest minority.
  • They often face barriers to participation in all aspects of society.
  • People with disabilities do not have equal access to society or services, including education, employment, health care, transportation, socio-political participation or justice.
