Salahuddin Ayyubi Foundation is a non-governmental organization based in Ajmer, India, that aims to enhance education and improve the quality of life for Muslims. The foundation was established by Mohammad Rais Khatri, an entrepreneur and social activist, in the memory of the great Sultan Salahuddin Ayyubi, also known as Saladin, who was a courageous and brilliant Muslim leader during the 12th century.
The foundation’s history and values are inspired by the legacy of Salahuddin Ayyubi, who was a true follower of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and famous for his bravery, statesmanship, justice, mercy, tolerance, and as a brilliant military leader and soldier. He ruled over present-day Israel, Palestine, Yemen, Egypt, Upper Mesopotamia, Syria, a few parts of Africa and Turkey, and established the Ayyubid Dynasty. He also fought against the European Crusaders who had conquered Jerusalem and killed Thousands of Muslims in 1099. He eventually liberated Jerusalem from the Crusaders in 1187 after the Battle of Hattin.
Our values are the principles and beliefs that guide the way Salahuddin Ayyubi Foundation operates and represent the essence of our organization. Our values set the standards for our community members, tell the story about our culture and identity, and guide us in our decision-making to enable us to shape the future in an ever-changing environment.
The couplet by Allama Iqbal perfectly captures the essence of Mohammad Rais Khatri’s journey. From a young age, Mohammad Rais Khatri was passionate about social justice and education.

Mohammad Rais Khatri is a true embodiment of the couplet by Allama Iqbal. He has transformed his passion into a movement, empowering marginalized communities and igniting a revolution of social change.
