Our Story

Inspiring One Heart at a Time

أَلَا وَإِنَّ فِي الْجَسَدِ مُضْغَةً إِذَا صَلَحَتْ صَلَحَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ
وَإِذَا فَسَدَتْ فَسَدَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ أَلَا وَهِيَ الْقَلْبُ

“Verily, in the body is a piece of flesh which, if it becomes  good, the entire body becomes good, and if corrupt, the entire body is corrupt. Truly, it is the heart.” [Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī]

Our hearts drive, define, and characterize us! Working on our hearts allows us to flourish in our relationship with Allāh ﷻ, with ourselves, and with the world around us as we progress through the various stages of life. At Guided Hearts Institute, our mission is to instill love, guidance, purpose, and wellness in the core of each individual—the heart.

Your Heart Matters

“Verily, Allāh ﷻ does not look at your appearance or wealth, but rather He looks at your hearts and actions.” [Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim]

Guided Hearts Institute was founded by Ustadha Dunia Shuaib to fill a void in our communities. During the course of traveling and providing educational programs across the world, it became apparent to her that there is a growing need for psychoeducation grounded in Islamic spirituality. Modern mental health practices fail to address the complex and intimate relation between spirituality and mental health.

At Guided Hearts Institute, we develop modalities that are Islamically integrated and allow Muslims to remain congruent with their beliefs. We seek to revive the Islamic tradition of the proactivity and empowerment of each individual through education.
