What we do?


In the Name of God, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful

          “And let there be group of people from among you who invite all goodness, enjoin what right, and forbid what is wrong.” The Holy Qur’an, 3:104.

          The Almighty said: “Invite all to the Path of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful exhortation.” The Holy Qur’an, 16:125.

          Prophet Mohammad, the Messenger (p.b.u.h.) said: “O Ali! If Allah brings to guidance through you even one single person, that is better than everything that the sun rises upon.”


The Islamic faith has come as a mercy for the whole world. Islam, through divine teachings, contains all the precepts of goodness, love, and peace for all mankind. It guides humanity to the worship of God, the One and the Only God, the source of all plentitude and existence itself, to the path that saves them from the clutches of polytheism and agnosticism. The Straight Path which guarantees their happiness in this life and the life to come.
