Chaplaincy in its contemporary settings is a revival of the Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH) of visiting the sick or Ziyara. It includes visiting of the sick, offering a prayer “Dua”, and comforting our patients.
As an educational organization, we strive to train a group of Muslim men and women to become chaplains. We train our chaplains on how to offer compassionate care and discuss the needs of our patients, serve as their advocates, and support patients in receiving religious and spiritual care services that are religiously authentic, scientific-based, patient-centered, and culturally competent.
Muslim Spiritual Care services serves as a resource for healthcare providers and chaplains of all faiths. We have developed interactive workshops to be offered in hospitals to address the needs of Muslim patients. Training is open to chaplains and interdisciplinary team members.
