A Kiss for Grandma: For Mothers Whose Daughters Had Babies of Their Own
Our organizations emerged just decades ago as the remarkable coalescing of two blessings: An enlightened dimension of Western civilization, the nonprofit, and an outpouring of goodness engendered in Muslims by Islam. Wherever it flowed, this wondrous blend gained vigor and left new life in its immensely fertile wake. It behooves us all to think for a moment about the fruitfulness of this union. Its possibility is practically and spiritually exhilarating. However, in the aftermath of the tragedy of September 11, 2001, the nonprofit world changed forever and all Muslim nonprofits found themselves under intense scrutiny with their operations being under a cloud of suspicion.
Thought-provoking and groundbreaking, Guarding a Sacred Trust is essential reading for anyone interested in learning how Muslim nonprofits function and to upgrade to an effective organization. This 481-page book, with 41 chapters, addresses every aspect of nonprofit organizational development, especially in the aftermath of 911.
This book is the culmination of the authors' combined four decades of experience in volunteering for, working in, leading, founding, consulting, and growing a variety of nonprofit organizations in America. But it is not meant only for Muslims and Americans. It aims to serve everyone who wants to institutionalize his or her passion, or who yearns to upgrade and raise the professional quality with which they and their existing nonprofit groups function. It is directed to institutional leaders, managers, and philanthropy professionals, but any nonprofit employee, volunteer, or supporter will find a storehouse of education catalogued in its pages.
