Why Donate to ICNA?
Islamic Circle of North America is a leading grass roots organization
which seeks to obtain the pleasure of Allah (SWT) through working for
the establishment of Islam in all spheres of life. ICNA has many
projects, programs, and activities which are designed to help in the
process of molding the individual and reforming society at large.

Outreach (Dawah) Activities

The 877-Why Islam Project

Why Islam has initiated many projects and activities to help present
a clear view of Islam. The 1-877-WHY-ISLAM toll free hotline was
established to help those who are seeking answers to questions about
Islam. Up to 8 Simultaneous associates volunteer at the call center.
Other projects include advertising Why Islam billboards on public
highways, organizing community booths at malls, and the launching of ad
campaigns on the radio.

ICNA Annual Convention

Every year thousands of Muslims attend our Annual convention along
with their families. Relevant themes are expounded upon by the most
knowledgeable of Islamic Scholars. A wide array of vibrant parallel
activities and programs are held. These activities include a dynamic
youth conference, a Muslim children’s conference, sisters only sessions,
plus sessions in various languages. A lively Bazaar nicely
compliments the other segments of the convention. For one weekend a
major U.S. city transforms into a Muslim metropolis.

Young Muslims (Brothers)

Young Muslims is a pioneering national youth organization that has
been on the youth scene since the early 90’s. We have established a well
organized network of local youth groups which we call NeighborNets
(which means network of neighbors) across the nation. Each NeighborNet
is a dynamic youth group which attempts to build a solid understanding
of the principles of Islam amongst its members by helping them put these
principles into practice. By providing the youth with an Islamic
atmosphere where they can form bonds of brotherhood/sisterhood with
their peers, they become comfortable with Islam and its teachings. We
stress the importance of knowing, understanding, and fulfilling our
individual and collective obligations as Muslims.

Young Muslims (Sisters)

Young Muslims Sisters is an organization dedicated to addressing the
vital Roles the Muslim youth need to play in North America. With
different programs attuned to the youths' critical stage in life, we
seek to address real-life problems and give the support needed to live
our lives as dedicated Muslim youth. We accomplish this noble goal
through activities catered to a youth's frame of mind. Weekly gatherings
of study circles called NeighborNets are an essential part of YM. Our
other activities include Sister chill sessions, Fehmul-Quran classes,
seminars, Project Ummah, National Volunteering Day, local summer
retreats, sporting events, Dawah camps, annual intensive training
programs, Qiyam-ul-Layl programs, Eid parties and more.

877 Why Islam Releases New Ramadan Brochure

 Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. It begins with the sighting of the new moon after which all physically mature and healthy Muslims are obliged to fast for the complete month. Fasting is done as an act of worship and obedience to Allah (God). Between dawn and sunset, Muslims abstain from all food, drink and any kind of sexual contact. In addition to this physical component, the spiritual aspects of the fast include an added emphasis on refraining from gossip, lies, obscenity and in general, any sinful act.

God says in the Holy Qur'an: “O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you,that ye may (learn) self-restraint…Ramadan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur'an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting…”
(Al-Qur’an 2:183,185).
