OUR PAST COURSES

ILF is an educational initiative of the Islamic Circle of North America whose objective is to enrich the lives of Muslims by providing them with sound knowledge of Islam. By affecting their hearts through a deepened awareness of the faith, ILF aims to develop a higher caliber of Muslim leaders.

ILF takes Islamic learning beyond a casual lecture and into a formal classroom setting, providing a comprehensive educational experience through seminars, workshops and intensive classes. Scholars provide instruction in Quranic studies, Hadith studies, Fiqh, Sunnah, Arabic language, Tajweed and contemporary Muslim issues. The institution also offers programs that focus on leadership development, chaplaincy training and interfaith cooperation.

ILF hosted many onsite classes, and online seminars, with a total attendance of more than 75,000 people across the country. ILF Texas developed and launched a new website that hosts a registration module and a video library of previous ILF courses. ILF Chicago launched a three-year Associate’s Level Islamic Studies Program, based on the curriculum of the Secondary College of Al-Azhar University, Cairo.

The Tarbiyah Department provides ICNA’s membership with essential knowledge of the Quran, Sunnah, Fiqh, Arabic, Islamic history, the Islamic movement and similar subjects. It seeks to prepare ICNA’s members to live Islam through word and action and motivates them to develop their spiritual and intellectual abilities. The department aims to develop individuals who exemplify high moral character, sound knowledge of Islamic principles, a deep understanding of Islam, and a willingness to serve their communities. To do this, the department creates a study syllabus which it provides regularly to members.

At a local and regional level, the Tarbiyah Department hosts weekly NeighborNets and tarbiyah camps for training and skill development. It also prepares audio and visual material for workshops and presentations, and guides local units in formulating regular programs. ICNA’s numerous branches hold weekly or monthly events via its 300 NeighborNets. Many online classes and 100’s of workshops and seminars are also conducted.

EMBRACE

Embrace: A Project of ICNA is a convert led initiative which serves is to empower, integrate, nourish, and educate our diverse Muslim convert community by providing safe social spaces which encourage growth, shape their Islamic identity, and equip them with knowledge they need for their lifetime journey. We strive to provide a sense of family and community that many converts search for in the Muslim community. Founded in 2017, Embrace invests in building a community of Muslim American converts through a variety of services catered towards them such as weekly convert led Halaqahs, Islamic Classes, Social Programs, Ramadan Iftar Programs, Eid Programs, and others.

 

 

 

PURPOSE OF EMBRACE

 
According to a study done by Pew Research in 2018, the net conversion rate for Islam in America is 0%. A major factor is the fact converts find themselves marginalized from the greater Muslim community and eventually end up leaving the faith. In order to re-shape the negative perspective of Islam in America, we need to invest in our indigenous Muslims, i.e converts and give them the tools they need to succeed and help grow them into leaders of our community.
