Community Empowerment

 

Come for a special sensitivity training/dawah workshop led by the IslamInSpanish team, covering how non-Muslims perceive us and their corresponding view of Islam and Muslims. Attendees will learn the best ways to present Islam to non-Muslims and how to avoid common mistakes and approaches in speaking to non-Muslims about Islam.

Consulting, Mentoring, & Leadership Development

We have developed a community development program to assist communities who wish to have a Latino Representative at their respective Islamic centers. This leadership program is designed in a way that our experienced leaders and instructors can advise masjid boards and committees about how to engage the Latino community while empowering and mentoring their own Latino representative in-house their dawah outreach. For many years we have been asked to come to masajid and carry out educating Latinos about Islam and our concern is always at the point of our departure when we ask ourselves who will carry out the work when we’re gone. This program is designed to establish a lasting impact in local communities across the United States without having to re-invent the wheel.

We have decades of combined experience at IslamInSpanish that we would like to impact the lives of others in distant localities based on models we have developed and proved to work over the years.

University & Civic Speaking Engagements

Our sought out leadership team is often requested to speak to National Conventions such as ICNA, MAS, ISNA, Texas Dawah Convention, and others throughout the U.S. We also team up with national MSAs to speak at Islamic Awareness weeks and other occasions in Universities and other Civic Engagement opportunities. Usually we come prepared to set up our dawah table with audio and video material to distribute to educate Latinos about Islam and often film to document our talks and visits or deliver interviews to media outlets as requested. We view public speaking as a way to share with others the good that we have found after embracing Islam and are usually the only Latino Muslims on the panel or first converts to interact at a general American community level. We have spoken in prestigious universities such as Harvard, University of Texas, Rutgers, and many others. We have also been asked to speak at civic level through churches, synagogues, and other public places.
