Kisa Family

Special Needs

An Islamic platform supporting neurodiverse chuldren and their families by providing a modified curriculum, resources, educational media and family support systems.

Prophet Muḥammad (ṣ) said: “Whoever helps a person who is incapable of understanding a subject and teaches him the proofs of his religion against an enemy, Allah will help him in the grave bear witness to the testimony of faith [in front of the angels of the grave] and make his departure from this world and his return to Allah [easy]. He will couple him with the greatest deeds and will be given the good news of Allah’s pleasure.”
