As a taboo subject in the Muslim community, sex is the perpetually avoided dinner-table conversation. At HEART, we believe it’s time to start that conversation. That is why we are raising funds to expand our virtual resource center. We believe that Muslims deserve access to accurate and culturally-sensitive sexual health information.
It’s time to finally have the talk.
Our virtual resource center provides a unique and necessary medium for Muslims to learn about their bodies, sex, and sexual assault, in a way that offers:
Accuracy. With television, social media, and other numerous information outlets, it can be difficult to obtain accurate and relevant sexual health information. Our virtual resource center will provide you with correct information, free from bias.
Anonymity. We know it can hard to explore these issues, and we want to honor your privacy. Providing a virtual resource center allows you to access sexual health information without fear of shame or blame.
Cultural-sensitivity. Mainstream health education does not consider the faith-based and cultural values that may be important to you, your family, and community. We make every effort to offer accurate, nuanced information and guidance.
Empowerment, inspiration, & critical thinking. True change and empowered decision-making cannot be controlled or dictated. We hope to offer you the tools and support you need to feel personal agency with respect to your sexual health needs
Let’s get it on(line)!
Over the past 2 years, we have had 18 online publications collectively downloaded more than 25,000 times. To increase our impact and accessibility, we need YOUR help in expanding our virtual resource center.This center will include, but is not limited to the following:

These online resources will provide a safe space for all to learn about their bodies and health, in a way that is anonymous, accurate, free of shame, and most importantly, considers cultural and religious context.
