ICNA launches National Dawah Academy

Dec 13, 2020

ICNA Dawah Department today announced the launch of a National Dawah Academy

This initiative seeks to consolidate dawah courses offered by WhyIslam and GainPeace projects. The academy will also be collaborating with AskAMuslim for the spring semester. The goal of the academy is to empower and educate the wider Muslim community in the field of Dawah, to non-Muslims.

The classes will begin during the Spring Semester on January 18th and end before the month of Ramadan on April 9th.

The courses offered this semester are (1) Intro to Dawah Methodologies (2) Fiqh of Dawah and (3) Intro to Comparative Religion.

All courses are available online using a state-of-the-art Learning Management System (LMS) platform. Each course has a registration fee of $50. It will be refunded if you attend 80% of classes and complete the course work. Thus the course will come at no cost to the students.

After completion and passing of all 15 courses, the students will acquire a Diploma in Field Dawah Studies.

The three levels in the Diploma program will each grant certification as well: (1) Certified Field Dawah Associate (CFDA) certificate, (2) Certified Field Da’ee (CFD) certificate, and (3) Certified Field Dawah Lead (CFDL) certificate. Each level will comprise 5 courses.

First Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah

First Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah

The inclusion of poor in our festivity must be done without which we cannot complete our service to Allah SWT. How many societies the poor is left out of the pie and the rich eats the entire pie. A few weeks ago, we celebrated Eid-ul Fitr. And on that Eid, we enjoy its virtues by giving the Zakaat-ul Fitr to the poor before we begin the Eid prayer. This Eid we have to complete its celebration by giving 1/3 of the meat to the poor and needy. As Allah SWT says: Then eat thereof and feed therewith the poor who have a very hard time. (22:28) EID MUBAARAK!
