WELCOME

As a Muslim, you’re probably familiar with the teachings of the Prophet, calling to Allah and the duty of Da’wah. Da’wah was the essential duty of all the Prophets and it plays a big part in the life of any believer, bringing with it many rewards, and now more than ever there is a desire for others to learn about Islam and its teachings.

A lot of the information provided about Islam is biased and poorly researched and this creates an inaccurate view of Islam and our beliefs. So, as Muslims, we want to share our faith with others; explaining the basic beliefs, removing confusion and sharing our own personal experiences of how Islam can positively impact a life. However, many people are held back by not knowing where to start and through a lack of training.

Without the correct information and guidance, engaging in da’wah can seem daunting. This is where The Messengers of Peace Academy comes in.
