Message From Our Founder
Alhamdulillah, it’s been another amazing year for iERA!
Your donations helped educate and train 1,900 Islamic missionaries; provided 200,000 faith-based materials; supported 2,500 new Muslims and enabled the Prophetic mission to expand to 55 countries across the world!
In the last year the iERA family has grown and we are now working in even more countries, so that we can help our brothers and sisters in humanity re-think and correct their relationship with Allah SWT.
We are now working on new campaigns so that we can expand the dawah to more countries this year, insha’Allah. We are improving our dawah training courses and our new Muslim support programmes so that we are better equipped to take care of new Muslims in the UK and around the world.
As Allah SWT says in the Qur’an:
“And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, “Indeed, I am of the Muslims.” ( Surah Fussilat, Ayah 33)
In this review, you can find out more about our key achievements and campaigns, and see how – with your generous donations – we can make an even bigger difference in the coming year, insha’Allah.
Abdurraheem Green – iERA Founder
Your donations helped education and train 1,900 Islamic missionaries; provided 200,000 faith-based materials; supported 2,500 new Muslims and enabled the Prophetic Mission to expand to 55 countries across the world!
We run weekly missions in London, and monthly throughout major cities in the UK.
Training is delivered on every mission to motivate the local Muslim community to engage and convey the message of Islam.
Every mission reaches out to around 600-1000 people locally. Over the last year, these local missions have been responsible for communicating Islam to over 52,000 people. On average, 480 people are embracing Islam as new Muslims every year!
WHO DO YOU LOVE?
Our ‘Who Do You Love?’ campaign has been very successful in engaging Londoners, and raising awareness about why Muslims love and respect the Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him). Dozens of people have decided to embrace Islam as a result of conversations initiated by a simple question – who do you love?
New Muslim Support
Our new Muslim development programme has helped over 2,500 reverts learn, understand and settle into Islam.
Last year, on average 40 reverts registered for our new Muslims development programme every month, which equates to 480 new Muslims annually.
Our new Muslims development programme is amongst the most important work that we do at iERA.
Over 5,000,000 cards, flyers and books have been distributed to non-Muslims to inform and educate them about Islam. These materials have been written and designed by iERA in a style and language that is easy to understand.
This year we have researched and published our first book, The Eternal Challenge and are in the process of publishing more books which address arguments against Islam from an academic and philosophical level.
All of our materials are provided free of charge, and we are currently working collaboratively with over 500 individuals and organisations across the UK to promote a better understanding of Islam.
Online Education & Training
Last year, to support the online dawah movement, we produced a range of articles and essays on themes around science, rationality, evolution, and tawheed – ‘How do we know God is One?’
We also delivered training on how to convey the message of Islam to more than 2,500 people across six continents.
Last year, we rolled out a number of national and international campaigns focused on empowering local Muslim communities to engage in social projects. These campaigns included:
‘Don’t Hate, Debate!’
Thousands of people have attended our ‘Don’t Hate, Debate!’ LIVE events, with more than half a million views online!
Guest Panelists have included:
- Peter Oborne (The Daily Mail and The Spectator)
- Dan Hodges (The Telegraph)
- Professor Peter Cave (British Humanist Association)
- Peter Tatchell (Peter Tatchell Foundation)
- Tom Holland (Historian)
More than 7,000 essays around the debate topics have been printed and distributed.
Social Media Reach
We have a social media following of almost three million people all around the globe, and this is increasing by more than ten thousand a day!
