Volunteer Opportunities

“Volunteering at SeekersHub Global has taught me about the true meaning of adab, by working within the close team of people that makes SeekersHub Global what it is. It was so refreshing coming to work in this blessed environment; here we actually care about one another and the work that we do. The work is challenging, it’s fast paced and as we see our projects coming together and producing results, it’s immensely rewarding too.” Michelle, SeekersAcademy Director

Some of our team members say:

“I have been very lucky to be chosen by Allah to work at SeekersGuidance. The SG crew is very friendly, sincere and selfless. Everyone’s opinion counts at SG, even the new recruits. The workload and the hours spent are not wasted, rather they become very sweet once you remember you’re doing it for the sake of Allah.” Saud Hanif, SeekersGuidance Student Support

“Volunteering your time to assist SeekersGuidance in producing affordable and quality Islamic educational services is an excellent way to fulfill the Prophetic directive to convey his message, even if it’s only one verse of the Holy Qur’an. That one verse could change someone’s life. So do your part, on whatever level you can, to be of service to the Muslim community by promoting the spread of sacred knowledge.” Zaynab Ansari Abdul-Razacq, Teaching Assistant & Consultant

“As Muslims, we are accountable for every single breath that we take, and how we utilize our time in the most effective manner. Volunteering at SeekersGuidance is a way of spending one’s short moments in this duniya in a way which will be insha Allah pleasing to Allah Most High. It is a way of spreading Islam in its most pristine form, not only in the West, but all over the world. This is an important task during a time in which Muslims/ Islam are stereotyped and misunderstood by the vast majority of society at large. As a volunteer, I know I can make a difference, contribute, and help others.” Shireen Ahmed, Course Development Co-ordinator

“It’s amazing how SeekersGuidance has come a long way from offering just two courses to about 18 now, masha Allah! It wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for the dedicated team of volunteers running the show! It just goes onto to show how far pure intentions can take us. The main reason for me to volunteer here is that I know that my work means something to a lot of people – people who are trying their very best to reach Allah Himself.” Ahsan Irfan, SeekersLounge Developer & General Volunteer
