Al-Risala, The Organization
To promote the power of positive thinking and to spread the message of peace and spirituality to all of humanity based on the teachings of Islam.
We are a non-profit, non-political organization that strives to develop positive and spiritually inclined citizens of the world who can live together peacefully so that the culture of peace and spirituality may spread at a universal level. We seek to present to the world the true face of Islam based on peace, tolerance, and co-existence. We seek to make people understand the true purpose of life by making them aware of the Creation Plan of God. We are currently cultivating a team of ambassadors of peace and spirituality to promote and spread this message to the world through the teaching of mind-based spirituality and interfaith dialogue.
