A few words about vicennium
Allah willing, Madin Academy commemorates its 20th anniversary over the years 2015-2017.
The Madin Academy, as an Islamic institute, had many responsibilities to fulfil. The Academy had to communicate with a global audience. Yet those particular citizens, part of a world-wide Islamic community, strove to preserve their Muslim identity and at the same time wanted to embrace the new technology with its promise of vibrant ideas. Convincingly to link traditional Muslim beliefs with the emerging cyber-orientated lifestyle in rapidly changing world was a herculean task.
Using the argument of the advantages and excitement of technological development, some, in Muslim society, tried to distract other Muslims from their time-worn traditional beliefs.
However, in the midst of expectations and apprehensions, came a shower of Allah’s blessings. People from all walks of life including scholars, academicians, politicians, ordinary citizens, adopted whole heartedly the goals of the Academy. They all played a vital part in a variety of programmes, conferences and projects at Madin. Furthermore, these innovative projects have led on to the recapturing and re-inspiring of Sunni Muslims, in Kerala society, whose faith was being undermined by the pressures and attractions of the modern technological world. All praise to Allah.
