Dawah in Britain: The Shocking Reality
DID YOU KNOW?
The population of Britain is: 62,232,0001
The number of Muslims is: 2,520,0002
A recent survey showed that:
93% of the British public do not know anything at all about the Qur'an!3
That's 55,500,000+ people who know little or nothing about the peaceful, glad tidings of this Book!
We truly believe that our work is essential in removing misconceptions about Islam, creating positive dialogue
and helping build a tolerant and cohesive society. Please answer the call and support our efforts.
IDCI's Work Since 2000
In order to fulfil our duty of Dawah and positive engagement, IDCI has been actively pursuing a nationwide Dawah campaign since 2000, funded solely by kind donations from British Muslims. During this time, IDCI has become the leading Dawah organisation in the U.K, Alhamdulillah.
IDCI has so far printed & distributed 400,000+ copies of Qur'an translations and 7.9 million+ Dawah publications.
The free distribution is done through, hundreds of nationwide Dawah stalls, Islamic exhibitions, university and college Islamic societies, Masajid, Islamic organisations and individual requests.
IDCI also supplies to the civil services, police forces, prisons, hospitals, fire services and educational institutions. These various channels help thousands of people attain a true appreciation of the beauty of Islam and hundreds choose to accept it as a result.
