Today’s program is themed “How a New Muslim Lawyers Group is Pursuing Justice Through Legal Mentorship and Legal Advocacy” with guests:

  • Salmah Rizvi, AMBA President 
  • Mohammad Ali Naquvi, AMBA Vice President

We will answer the questions: What is AMBA? How does the family of the Prophet (may peace and prayers be upon them) inspire their legal advocacy? What makes them different from other Muslim justice organizations? What resources do they provide? 

AMBA states that its work is motivated “by principles of the Ahlul Bayt, the family of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon them), which include love, compassion, mercy, and justice.”
