Title : Nawawi foundation

Description :
The Nawawi Foundation is a not-for-profit educational institution set up in 2000 to provide Islamic teachings to America's first and second generation Muslims. It was named after the renowned Muslim scholar Imam Nawawi (1234-1278). The institution is based in Illinois, USA and is chaired by Dr Umar Faruq Abd-Allah. This website informs visitors of: their mission; the courses on offer; the educational tours abroad which they organise (including the umrah i.e. a non-obligatory pilgrimage to Mecca); and the programs they sponsor. Of particular interest to scholars of Islam is the small collection of articles written by Dr Abd-Allah, a few of which are also available in Spanish. Visitors can join their mailing list from here.
