Madina Institute is a private, non profit , vibrant and inclusive organization whose roots go back around 30 years. It is the continuation of the reformist movement of the original Madina established by the prophet sallalahu alayhi wa alihi wasalam and aims to offer a platform in helping build a “global community” in which all people can live together in harmony with mutual respect and love … Madina’s foundation is a wish for a better world.
Our approach is to connect everyone to that which is uniting and common amongst us all i.e the Quran and authentic Sunnah with a “Back to Basics approach” holding the core prophetic integral values of love, mercy, compassion, tolerance close to our heart and methodology.
At Madina , we aim to restore “unconditional compassion” as the central theme of our beautiful faith and prophetic way and practise academic neutrality and full disclosure about others so that our youth are given accurate and respectful information about other traditions, sects and cultures.
We aim to foster a stimulating, academically challenging environment where the minds fight, but the hearts are united .. and breed a culture where differences are respected acknowledging that unity doesn’t necessarily mean conformity .
Madina Institute is operational in many parts of the world and currently has branches in U.S.A, U.K, Canada, South Africa, Malaysia and Norway and is in the process of establishing more chapters in various other countries.
Madina Institute U.K is a chapter of Madina Global and has been operating in the U.K since 2011.
In December 2016 we established our physical premises named “Madina Institute – Oldham Masjid and Community Hub”. The Hub is located in Oldham, Clarksfield and aims to represent what we perceive a 21st century U.K Masjid should be, attempting to imitate the best of examples i.e the prophet Muhammad sallalahu alayhi wa alihi waslam in how he built the first physical Community Hub when he migrated from Makkah to Madinah, a centre of love, warmth , openness and excellence, that brings communities together, offering facilities that cater for the “Academic, Social and Spiritual” needs of the entire Community.
The facility houses all our projects and activities under one roof represented by the Masjid, our Educational Wing (Madina Institute) and our Charitable Wing (Planet Mercy).
