IMAU’s motto is:“We are on Allah’s selfless health service”.
This motto is derived from Allah’s guidance in the Holy Qur’an: Chapter 6 Verse 162:“
"Say: Truly my prayer, and my service of sacrifice, my life and my death are all for Allah the Cherisher of the worlds”
In order to achieve its mission and vision, IMAU has set itself three broad goals:
I. To improve the health status of the community using Islamic principles.
