Welcome to the Muslim Educational Trust - MET


The Muslim Educational Trust was founded in 1993 in response to the community's needs in the Portland area. These needs for education about Islam were generated by the Muslim community as well as the Non-Muslim community.

Muslim Educational Trust is dedicated to the betterment of our society, and strives to achieve its purpose through education, cooperation, networking, and programs which benefit Muslims and non-Muslims in the greater Portland, Oregon.

Ramadhan Mubarak! First day is Saturday, May 27th 2017


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

Portland, Oregon, Friday 5/26/2017 - The Muslim Educational Trust Board of Directors and Staff would like to wish you a blessed Ramadhan. The first day of Ramadhan 1438 is Saturday, May 27th, 2017. May Allah SWT accept our fasting and prayers and help us all reap the most blessings out of this most beautiful and most fulfilling month of the year.

Please support our needy brothers and sisters this Ramadhan with your Zakah and Sadaqah (charity). MET has a special Zakah Fund set aside to support the needy in our beloved community.

Muslims, Christians, Jews, and people of good faith are invited, and each night there will be a speaker: Muslim, Christian, and Jewish. Food and refreshments will be provided.
