Understanding Islam - UK (UIUK) is a Manchester based group of Muslim men and women who are determined to practice and present Islam in a way that befits the message of the Almighty. The members of this registered charity are desirous of contributing towards the cause of improving the image of the last message of God.
UIUK stands firmly committed to the understanding that the core message of Islam in the form of the Qur'an and the Sunnah has been transmitted to the mankind by the Almighty through His last messenger Muhammad, God's mercy be on him, in the most authentic and indisputable manner. If Muslims focus on the core part of their religion and continue to debate the rest in an amicable manner, they will be able to remove the evil of sectarianism from their ranks and become united as one.
UIUK believes in the unity of muslim Ummah and does'nt impose any specific school of thought on its members.UIUK wants to provide a platform to the muslim Ummah where muslims from all backgrounds can gather and practice islam the way they have understood it without any fear of getting a negative label.The organisation's members want to abandon all forms of personality worship and only want to hold firmly to the rope of Allah(Quran)and the path of prophet Muhammad(pbuh).They hold all scholars of islam in high esteem and are very clear that they will only accept an interpretation which is closest to the Quran and sunnah no matter where this interpretation comes from.
We aim to deal with all issues in a non-confrontational manner by dialogue and academic discussions. We are a non political organization and our ethos is fairness and honesty.
