About Us


Aafia is a name rich in meaning. When a well respected scholar of The Qur’an, Imam Mohamad al-Asi, was asked to share his understanding of the meaning of Aafia, he stated the following:

Simply put, the pedestrian meaning of ‘Aafia is (physical) health. The more comprehensive meaning of it is not only physical health but the health that is inclusive of a person’s physical, mental, and spiritual being. Some linguists would extend that to mean that “‘Aafia(h)” is the physical health that extends from spiritual health.

We believe this to be a most fitting name for an organization that will have a restorative justice mandate. Central goals of The Aafia Foundation, Inc., will be to provide another much needed voice for the voiceless within the American and international public square; to strive to the best of our ability to come to the aid of the oppressed; and to help the United States of America live up to the better part of itself – as a nation theoretically founded on the still unfulfilled principle of “liberty and justice for all.”
