"Twelve thousand Muslims will not be defeated for lack of number." The Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace.

Dear Friends, Salam Alaykum.

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

One is the foundation of existence. The hadith “God is with the group” reveals the One’s love of unity. And since our Prophet, upon him be peace, has promised that God will never abandon 12,000 Muslims united for a cause, we need you to ensure Zaytuna College reaches that number – and has the care of Providence. Our Prophet’s promise testifies that a unified body of sincere believers standing 12,000 strong is equal to a critical spiritual mass that can overcome any obstacle.

Today, Zaytuna College exists as an intellectual and spiritual center to address the real needs of our community. Now, the collective strength of that community – which includes you – is essential to sustain and grow America’s first Muslim liberal arts college. Join this prophetically based initiative and be one of Zaytuna’s 12,000 Strong. 

Twelve thousand supporters giving a consistent amount each month will ensure that the teaching and learning that happens everyday at Zaytuna College is supported by our collective strength, enabling Zaytuna to build the permanent endowment that will make the College a lasting beacon of light, not only for today, but for generations to come, God willing. 

As American Muslims, we are all Zaytuna’s current caretakers, and we all need to ensure that Zaytuna thrives for those to come after us. 

This college is your college. Every step we have taken, by God’s grace, was with your help. You made a longstanding dream of our community become a reality. But this is only the beginning. Now is the time to realize our goal of establishing Zaytuna College as a premier – and permanent – educational institution. With your monthly gift, you can be part of an unbeatable number – a prophetically prescribed number – ensuring heavenly aid in the service of the Best of Creation, upon him be peace. 

Yours sincerely,

Hamza Yusuf
President, Zaytuna College
