In The Name of Allah The Beneficent The Most Merciful
“Allah will aid a servant (of His) so long as the servant aids his brother. Whosoever follows a path to seek knowledge therein, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise” [Sahih Muslim]
With your support our vision is to establish “Al Atharee Association Dawah Centre of The Gambia.”
Our aim is to establish a dynamic Dawah Centre in The Gambia, West Africa for the propagation of Islam according to The Qur’an, the final Revelation of Allah, and The Sunnah of the final Messenger of Allah, Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, and his Noble Companions.
The population of The Gambia is around 1.6 million with Muslims accounting for 95%.
Nevertheless, Al Atharee Association Dawah Centre will be open to all residents, and visitors to the Gambia, regardless of their faith, who wish to increase their knowledge and understanding of Islam.
We hope to be able to construct and establish “Al Atharee Dawah Centre of the Gambia” in a central conurbation in order to facilitate ease of access, the use of modern media and international communications with the Ulema worldwide.
Al Atharee Dawah Centre requires initial funding from donations from the Muslim public. Insha’Allah, thereafter we are hoping to become self sufficient via Al Atharee Association’s Income Generation Projects, on site and elsewhere in the Gambia, upon those projects becoming well established and profitable.
A wide range of facilities and activities are planned to be held at the centre including:
Islamic Information Desk
Dawah Publications Office
Jumu’ah Khutbah in Arabic, Mandinka & English
Evening Public Lectures
Foundation Courses for New Muslims & Shahada Certification
Islamic Courses for Adults Arabic/ English
Islamic Courses for Adults in Mandinka / Wolof/Jola
Daiee Outreach Training Courses
Central Islamic Public Reference Library of The Gambia
Central School Teacher Resource & Literacy Centre
Central Children’s Reading Room
Islamic Bookshop & Stationers
