Our Objectives

  • Our objectives centre on establishing the Tawhid of Allaah in both its creedal and practical forms in ourselves, our families and our local community as projected by the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah [may the praise and security of Allaah be upon him] and his Companions [may Allaah be pleased with them].

Allaah the Mighty and Exalted says [4:36]:

{And worship Allaah and do not associate any partners with Him}

The Prophet [may the praise and security of Allaah be upon him] said as reported in al-Bukhari:

“All of my Ummah will enter Jannah except for those who refuse.” He was asked: “Who would refuse O Messenger of Allah?” He replied: “Whoever obeys me will enter Jannah and whoever disobeys me has refused.”                                                                                              

We traverse this path by holding onto the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah His Messenger because the Prophet [may the praise and security of Allaah be upon him] said, as reported in al-Haakim:

“O people! Indeed I have left amongst you that which, if you hold onto it, you will never go astray: the Book of Allaah and my Sunnah.”

We adopt the Righteous Salaf, at the head of whom were the Companions, as our exemplars because the Prophet [may the praise and security of Allaah be upon him] said, as reported in both Bukhari and Muslim:

“The best of people is my generation, then those who come after them and then those who come after them.”                                  

  • To produce a cohesive community of believers able to contribute effectively to the varying needs of the local community within an Islamic framework thus fulfilling the following command of Allaah the Exalted:

{Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islam), enjoining Al-Ma’ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar (polytheism and disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful.} [3:104]

  • To cooperate with those who traverse the path of the Salaf in calling to the sincere worship of Allah, warning against shirk and all its manifestations, as well as innovations and sins.
  • To warn against those who oppose the path of the Salaf in belief, morals and practices
  • Free people from the fetters of blameworthy blind-imitation which has caused divisions amongst Muslims and contributed towards our crippling weakness
  • To create a strong Muslim identity which conforms with what Allah is pleased

The essence of the multiple objectives of Al-Istiqaamah can be encapsulated in two simple terms: al-Tasfiyah wa al-Tarbiyah. This is essentially the purification of the religion from alien beliefs and practices and the education and nurturing of the community upon the pure sources, with the aim of creating a model community that will fulfil its purpose in adhering to and spreading the true message of Islam.

With the help of Allaah the Mighty and Exalted, we are striving to utilise the impressive pool of talent amongst the local Muslim community to achieve this common goal of ours in accordance with the words of Allaah:

{And help one another in righteousness and piety and do not help one another in sin and transgression} [5:2]

And all praise is due to Allaah.
