What is Futuwwa?

Futuwwa means chivalry or strength of character or this level of nobility that every Muslim should aspire to. It has been equated with brotherhood and freedom, virtue and youth. These qualities affirm something within ourselves that we should strive for – connectedness. Futuwwa is the bringing together of the youth, of those who aspire to be something more, of those who have such wonderment for their religion, the delegation of defense of something beyond our scope. This is an attempt to reach a level of futuwwa with Muslims around the world; this is an attempt to connect our ummah through personal storytelling, through art, through the use of words to represent the aching wants of our souls. Simply, this is an endeavor.
