OUR D’AWAH PROGRAMMES

Right from the onset, one of the major objectives of the Lekki Muslim Ummah is to ensure the transformation of every Muslim in its environs into a better Muslim, through informative and educative D’awah programmes.It is instructive to note that our programmes have always been based on pristine Islam, as prescribed in the Holy Qur’an and the authentic Ahadith and Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him).

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES:

The ultimate objective of all our D’awah programmes is to ensure that Muslims in the Lekki Peninsula neighbourhood, at least, attain the goodness of this world and that of the Hereafter, in line with Qur’an 2: 200 . To achieve this goal, our Da’wah programmes are tailored to promote:
  1. A correct and sound understanding of Islam.
  2. Learning of Islamic etiquette and moral values.
  3. Steady spiritual growth of programme attendees.
  4. Transformation of nominal Muslims into active and well-informed ones.
