Islam 101 – A Basic Islamic Course in Islam (Level I)

The Basic Islamic Course – Level I was conducted between October 20th – December 8th 2018 at the IDM’s Office on the Eastern Main Road, Curepe. The course was conducted weekly on Saturdays from 2pm – 5pm, for seven (7) weeks. Approximately forty (40) persons registered for the course, which covered topics such as Tawheed, the Articles of Faith, Pillars of Islam, Performance of Salaah and other general topics. 75% of the class graduated successfully, including five (5) Non-Muslims.
All attendees expressed satisfaction and happiness in being a part of the course, as they were able to learn and strengthen their knowledge of Islam as well as become motivated to improve their practise of Islam. The non-Muslims were able to use this knowledge to understand Islam better to share to other non-Muslims and also change any negative misunderstandings about Muslims which are sometimes portrayed in the media.
Dec 15th, 2018
The IDM conducted a Qiyaam ul-Lail programme for brothers at the Bamboo Masjid on Dec. 15th 2018. The programme was well attended by more than thirty (30) brothers (between 7 – 30 years) who spent time together from Isha to Fajr the next morning. The brothers discussed the life of Prophet Isa a.s., the Islamic view on Christmas, the Spiritual Journey of Maryam a.s. as well as a study of Surah As-Saff (Chapter 61), Volume 14.
The brothers also bonded well with each during the night playing group games and midnight football.
The programme was a very beneficial one for the young brothers who remained attentive, participative and positive throughout the night.
