About Us

The Community Wide Shuraa Conference™ (CWSC) is established as a national resource and community service center supporting the Qur’anic principle of representative democracy or mutual consultation (Amruhum Shuraa Baynahum) in the conduct of community affairs:

“So whatever you are given is but a provision of this world’s life, and that which Allah has is better and more lasting for those who believe and rely on their Lord…And those who respond to their Lord and keep up prayer, and whose affairs are decided by counsel among themselves…” —The Noble & Glorious Qur’an, Sura Ash-Shura (42:36…42:38)

CWSC recognizes that only through Shuraa can the power of the group intellect be fully utilized for solving problems and discovering opportunities that help each of us improve our individual, family and community life.
