 Long Description

قُلْ هَٰذِهِ سَبِيلِي أَدْعُو إِلَى اللَّهِ ۚ عَلَىٰ بَصِيرَةٍ أَنَا وَمَنِ اتَّبَعَنِي ۖ وَسُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَمَا أَنَا مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ (سورة يوسف 108)

'Say, "This is my way; I invite to Allah with insight, I and those who follow me. And exalted is Allah ; and I am not of those who associate others with Him."' (Noble Quran 12:108)

The Islam Forum (Al Muntada) in Beirut was established in 1422 A.H/2001 A.D

It is considered the first institution of its kind in Lebanon in that it specializes in introducing Islam and initiating intellectual dialogue

The Islam-Forum (Al Muntada) is run by a team of full-time staff and specialized volunteers, many of whom are proficient in various languages

The institution regularly distributes free literature (books, pamphlets, audiovisual material, etc...) on Islam in more than 40 languages

The Islam-Forum (Al Muntada) is strategically located in central Beirut amidst several academic and intellectual institutions and establishments which provides the Islam-Forum with a fertile ground to engage in intellectual and open dialogue. Mission

Our primary aims are:

1) Educating both Muslims and non-Muslims on the reality of Islam as a complete way of life and an alternative system. In doing so, tackling and deconstructing common attacks and misconceptions about Islam.

2) Training Muslims and providing them with information and skills on how to properly introduce Islam, engage in dialogues with people of other faiths and ideologies, and on responding to common misconceptions.
