What's Included

“And all We relate to you of the stories of the messengers is to strengthen your heart therewith; and in this has come to you the truth and an admonition, and a reminder to the believers.” [Surat Hūd 11:120] They came with Good News. They came with grave warnings to those whose hands transgressed bounds. In their footsteps we strive to follow and in their words we deeply reflect. They were the Prophets; the Best of Mankind. Chosen and honoured by The Lord of the Worlds, their stories were preserved in beautiful verses to remind us of their hardships, their wisdom, and their messages to mankind. The stories of the Prophets were not meant as entertainment, they are timeless lessons of humanity meant to instruct us in understanding who we are, and why we exist. Without understanding the wisdom behind their lives we will thoughtlessly fall to the same mistakes of the generations that have preceded us. “...So relate the stories that perhaps they will give thought.” [Surat Al-'A`rāf 7:176]

About This Organizer

Originating in 2012, Understanding Islam Academy (UIA) is dedicated to making Islamic education accessible, affordable and relevant.

A project of DawaNet, UIA brings you the knowledge that matters.

As the name itself implies, Understanding Islam Academy is an endeavour facilitating the understanding and education of sacred Islamic traditions and sources in the contemporary Canadian context.

UIA's model of Islamic education involves the understanding of both the text and context, our sources and society. 

UIA is among the pioneers in offering weekend seminars and intensive week-long programs in the Greater Toronto Area with scholars and instructors from diverse academic disciplines.

Far from theoretical discourses on 'good to know' subjects, UIA's deliberately designed sessions offer stuff you 'need to know' as a Muslim who loves Allah and His creation.

UIA is a flagship project of DawaNetwhich is a grassroots network of Muslims, specializing in creative methods of outreach, social service, and community development in Canada.
