The Islamic Society of Britain is a community based charity and not-for-profit company registered in England and Wales. Established in 1990, we were one of the first organisations that sought to evolve a uniquely British flavour to Islam.
In order for this to happen we felt that Muslims would have to think seriously about understanding their faith in a British context.
Our aims are:
- To promote greater understanding and awareness of Islam
- To organise, educate and enhance the development of British Muslim communities
- To encourage positive contribution to British society and the promotion of social justice
Through our programme of activities, the Society helps individuals to think about their faith and contextualise this to the reality of modern society. Our activities range from small local programmes to large national events that cater for thousands.
The Islamic Society of Britain views Islam as a religion of peace and a continuation of age-old teachings from God to humanity. Not as a new religion, but as a way of life that has a strong focus – in spiritual terms on the worship of one God, and in social terms on justice and equity between people.
