About Islam 114
Islam114 is an international Dawah organization working to educate and inform the wider society about the true and noble message of Islam.
What does the ‘114’ in Islam114 represent?
114 stands for the 114 chapters in the Holy Quran. The Quran (literally meaning “the recitation”) is the central religious text of Islam. Muslims believe it to be the final revelation from God. At Islam114, we thought what better way to learn about Islam than through the text that grounds all of religion’s core beliefs.
As an international Dawah organization, Islam114 believes education is what empowers people as agents of change. Through various educational efforts we hope to empower the wider society with the clear understanding of Islam therefor forming new community relations and removing barriers.
What is ‘Dawah’?
Dawah is Arabic for “to call” or “to invite.” The objective of Islam114 is to invite people to the true and noble teaches of Islam.
“And let there be [arising] from you a nation inviting to [all that is] good, enjoining what it right and forbidding what is wrong, and those will be successful.” [3:104, Quran]
