Muslim Public Affairs Centre (MPAC) works with the community in pursuing the following projects as a way to promote and facilitate the practice of Islam as well as project Muslims as diverse and vibrant community contributing to the well-being and prosperity of our nation in numerous ways;
MPAC launched the Sakinah Project in 2009 as one of our social outreach projects to provide world class care and treatment for indigent and needy Muslim and non-Muslim members of the Nigerian society that have been falling through the cracks. The Sakinah Fund provides Muslims a chance to have a personal impact on others. To be someone's dream and the means to realize the dream. The Project and the Fund are dedicated to serve humanity, and through this many generous Muslim Nigerians have been helping their brothers and sisters, Muslims and non Muslims. Through the generous donation of Muslim Nigerians, many Nigerian families have realized their dreams of full recovery after much suffering and living in despair. Read more about Sakinah Project here.
Abode of Mercy
Death is a very painful and emotional time, yet one that may be filled with hope and mercy. Muslims believe that death is a departure from the life of this world, but not the end of a person’s existence. Rather, eternal life is to come, and we pray for God’s mercy to be with the departed, in hopes that they may find peace and happiness in the life to come.
The deceased should then be taken to the cemetery for proper burial- while those who attend the burial humbly remember Allah and His mercy, and pray for the deceased. Thereafter, mourning is observed, in Islam, by increased devotion, receiving visitors and condolences, and avoiding decorative clothing and jewelry. In Nigeria, safe for a few mixed cemeteries, there is a great need for a Muslim cemetery that will cater to the specific needs of the Muslim community. Click here to read more.
Dawah & Publications
Imagine gaining a fraction of reward for every person who learns something from the Quran or reverts to Islam as a result of reading the Quran. Not only are you fulfilling your Islamic responsibility of facilitating dawah but your contribution also fulfills your duty to give charity (sadaqah jaariyah) both of which are incumbent upon Muslims. Enjoy any of our publications and pass them to others. Will you support us? Will you be making the spiritual investment? No one can put a price on someone taking their shahadah, but the next time someone joins our great family as a result of reading the Qur'an, you will know that you have played a part.
