Home About Us Our Mission

Our Mission

The Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA) is an international organisation committed to educating and informing humanity about, and inviting to, the truth and noble message of Islam.

‘Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good; enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, they are the ones to attain felicity.” The Qur’an [3:104]

As an academy, we support our work through research-led initiatives which are developed as projects or ‘models’. For this reason iERA has a dedicated research department; the first of its kind for a Muslim organisation in the West. These projects have already made a big impression in the community; these include Mission Dawah, Muslim Now, One Reason and The Big Debates.

In addition to this, we have full time subject matter experts who deliver lectures, seminars and training courses on a vast range of Islamic, philosophical and social subjects.

iERA looks to dovetail into existing community efforts by enhancing their effectiveness, whilst at the same time exploring new and innovative methods to reach different audiences and break down barriers.
