The Islamic Human Rights Commission was set up in 1997. We are an independent, not-for-profit, campaign, research and advocacy organization based in London, UK. We have consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council.

Our aims are manifold, and our inspiration derives from the Qur'anic injunctions that command believers to rise up in defence of the oppressed.

“And what reason have you that you should not fight in the way of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and the children, (of) those who say: Our Lord! cause us to go forth from this town, whose people are oppressors, and give us from Thee a guardian and give us from Thee a helper.” Qur’an 4:75

IHRC volunteers and campaigners come from many different parts of the world and many different backgrounds to share in the common struggle against injustice and oppression.

We work with different organizations from Muslim and non-Muslim backgrounds, to campaign for justice for all peoples regardless of their racial, confessional or political background.

Our research work includes submitting reports to governments and international organizations, writing articles, monitoring the media, cataloguing war crimes and producing research papers on hate crime, discrimination, the nature of human rights and so on.

Our work at the UN brings together different aspects from all of IHRC’s work.

The campaigns section produces alerts and works on short and long term campaigns, often including organizing vigils, letter writing campaigns, exhibitions etc.

Our advocacy involves referring and taking on discrimination cases and cases that we can offer real assistance on.
