Islam in the Archipelago

  • Islam remains to be relevant throughout time by being flexible. Islam instils values without forcing people to part from their cultures and traditions. We have witnessed how Islam prospered in the Malay Archipelago, and how these nations embraced the teachings of Islam whilst retaining their cultural identity.
  • The message of Islam message is directed to all of humankind. It is not limited to any certain race, tribe or clan. The worth of a Mukmin is not attributed to his ethnicity or lineage, but the good qualities he exhibits – qualities which emanate from a heart filled with true faith in Allah s.w.t.
