Understanding Islam UK is a non-political, non-sectarian Muslim organisation which aims to propagate Islam through peaceful dialogue and present Islam in a way that befits the teachings of Allah Almighty in the glorious Qur’an. We are a charitable organisation registered with the Charity Commission UK.
UIUK stands firmly committed to the understanding that the core message of Islam - in the form of the Quran and the Sunnah - has been transmitted to mankind by the Almighty through His last messenger Muhammad (pbuh) in an 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 sectarianism from their ranks and become united as one.
Our work takes the form of educational sessions. We consciously encourage participation from women and non-Muslims. We are keen to provide a platform where individuals can gather and discuss Islam the way they have understood it, without any fear of stigmatisation and negativity. We hold all scholars of Islam in high esteem and are very clear that we will only accept an interpretation which is closest to the Quran and Sunnah no matter where this interpretation comes from.
We believe that there is no compulsion in religion and Muslims and non-Muslims are free to seek the Truth in their own way. We put forward no claim to be the exclusive holders of the Truth.
