Da’wah Team

Sharing the message of Islam is an obligation for all Muslims.   This message is rooted in the Quran, Allah’s last book sent to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). It is a guidance for humanity to achieve true success in this life and the hereafter.

The da’wah committee’s primary focus is to create awareness about Islam. We seek to:

  • Educate Muslims about  the essence of Islam
  • Accurately present Islam to people of other faiths through various platforms
  • Answer questions about Islam and clear misconceptions
  • Promote mutual understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims.
