Islamic Affairs strives to implement the teachings of Islam as per the guidance of the Qur’an and as practiced by Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama^ah, those who adhere to the methodology of Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam.
The most important objective of Islamic Affairs is to spread the correct knowledge of the Religion—teaching Muslims and non-Muslims about Islam—by spreading the Islamic Obligatory Knowledge and supporting it with clear evidence.
Islamic Affairs set its objectives with the realization that victory over evil, triumph over heinous terrorism and prevalence of true and realistic moderation can only be achieved by spreading religious education and propagating goodness among people—knowing that society can only be reformed through piety and fear of Allah.
moderation and justice much lost to the absence of wisdom and understanding
among the key players orchestrating the “War on Terror”.
My effort echoes a genuine cry to shun extremism through shedding light on
proper Islam while putting in perspective that agreement and disagreement
about the principles of Islam, like any other set of principles, is a practice
advocated and embraced by the Democratic Society.
As a matter of fact The Democratic Society considers the practice of intellectual
terrorism an abhorrent matter and prohibits demanding the other opinion holder
to alter and change unwillingly ones principles.
Muslims throughout history have battled within their own communities against
extremism and have succeeded. The success is due to an essential element
among the elements of their war against extremism and heinous terror, namely
spreading and instilling the correct and authentic knowledge about Islam.
