The MCA Wellness Committee understands that wellness is multifaceted and aims to promote well-being across all these dimensions. The holistic breakdown of wellness into dimensions was developed in 1976 by Dr. William Hettler, co-founder of the National Wellness Institute. Each dimension is interconnected, one dimension building the other. Along these lines, the MCA Wellness Committee is comprised of seven co-dependent dimensions (or Sub-Committees): Physical, Mental & Emotional, Intellectual, Financial, Spiritual, Social and Support Circles.
MCA Wellness Committee’s Mission: The Wellness Committee’s Mission is to provide programs and services within the framework of Islamic principles to build a healthier, stronger Muslim Community by focusing on personal development and family wellness across these dimensions.
MCA Wellness Committee’s Vision: It is to provide a support system to help Muslims reach their full potential in all aspects of their life.
MCA Wellness Committee’s Values: MCA Wellness Committee holds values of community, inclusion, equity, accessibility, respect, and empathy. We believe in the Prophetic Golden Rule which is to ‘do as to others what you want to yourself’ and that ‘love for your brother what you love for yourself’.
Anas ibn Malik reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “None of you will have faith until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.”
