What is the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects

We started this path relying on our values of moderation, openness, wisdom and cooperation. Our goal is to teach, guide towards good and benefit our societies. Our motto is honesty in transmitting the Islamic knowledge.

All this made the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects rise to the level of worldwide associations and be known throughout the world, so much so that it is playing an important role in spreading values of justice and knowledge among the different fractions of societies.

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. To Him belong the endowments and proper commendations. May Allah raise the rank of our prophet Muhammad and protect his nation from what he fears for it.

Hence, the Islamic institutions throughout the world rapidly trusted the A.I.C.P and established connections with it, a thing that consolidated the ties that the associations had with thousands of people worldwide.
