Abstract: Intimate partner violence (IPV) within Muslim communities is an under-researched topic (Abugideiri, 2011). While some studies looking at the prevalence of IPV have previously emerged, there is hardly any research on services for Muslim women experiencing IPV. To address this problem, we plan to conduct an exploratory study based on our findings from a brief questionnaire that will be sent to a list of organizations serving Muslim women. We plan to administer our questionnaire to staff working directly with Muslim women, and we will seek to discover what services exist for Muslim women, how these services are catered (or not) to address the cultural and religious specificities that apply to these women, and any larger initiatives that exist to address IPV in the Muslim communities in the United States. Within our last question, we will seek to find out what Islam’s position is on IPV and whether an Islamic framework can be used to challenge the presence of IPV in Muslim communities and whether such an approach can buttress and/or make current IPV work with Muslim women more culturally sensitive and easier to access from the community standpoint-an important consideration for addressing the problem at large.
