‘Make a contribution in every walk of life’; ‘Make things better’ (Al-Quran, 41:34). To MDI, this is the crux of dawa or communication of Islamic principles. There are two facets to the Islam Acquaintance Centre of MDI. On the one hand, the lectures are aimed at the general public, including non-Muslims who are interested in Islam. On the other, the lectures seek to give MDI students – and Muslims in general – some ideas as to how one might go about communicating Islam others.
