An-Nahdah Institute has been established due to the shortage in academic Islamic institutions presenting Islamic studies in a relevant fashion. While there are several establishments that offer Islamic studies, they are either inaccessible, unaffordable, or present Islamic education as a classical literature without relating it to the current time and situation that Muslims are experiencing.
An-Nahdah Institute attempts to present Islamic knowledge in a relevant manner, relating the Islamic texts to the daily affairs of the Muslim individual and the Ummah at large.
An-Nahdah Institute aims at providing deep knowledge of Islam in order to:
- Provide Muslims the tools necessary to view and evaluate the changing world events through an Islamic perspective.
- Develop Islamic thought which will impact their behavior and enable them to teach it to others.
