​​Empowering Muslim Women through Charitable Works

Muslim Women's Association of Pittsburgh

Our shelter services the Pittsburgh and surrounding areas on a first come first serve basis to needy women with/without children. There is never a time the Guest house is empty because of the high demand. We are happy to serve in that capacity.

Do you not see that to Allah prostrates whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth and the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountains, the trees, the moving creatures and many of the people?...  Holy Quran 22:18

 Muslim Women's Association of Pittsburgh is a local vocal advocate for those that are in need.
