Islamic Thinkers Society

Islamic Thinkers Society of NYC Official Facebook Group

“Let there rise from amongst you group(s)
who invite others to the khair(Islam),
command the good, and forbid the evil, and
they are the ones who are successful.”
[TMQ 3:104]

It is based upon this verse in the Qur’an that we, the Islamic Thinkers Society have based ourselves upon. We are a global organization following Ahl us-Sunnah wal jama’ah, who invite others to Islam from the Ideological perspective which is to invite to the Aqeedah(belief, Tawheed, Imaan) as well as to the shahriah(system, rules, commandments) as this is what is being meant in the ayah when Allah s.w.t. uses the word “khair”. Alhamdulillah our numbers are growing day by day as more Muslims are realizing their obligations towards their Creator.

Our da’wah activities take place mainly in the streets of Times Square, Jackson Heights, and Astoria, NYC where we give out leaflets and hold posters/banners covering all types of issues relating from spiritual, social, economical, to political issues. This methodology was adopted from the seerah(lifestyle) of the prophet Muhammad s.a.w. where he along with the sahabas(companions) would constantly night and day exhaust all their efforts to give da’wah to the Makkan society to invite them to the Tawheed(onenness in worship & reverence)of Allah s.w.t. where they would rationally challenge the belief as well as the dominant corrupt system that ruled over them that allowed them to think in this manner. They would command what Allah s.w.t. revealed to them was good which was missing in the present society whether in the belief or the system, and they would forbid the evil which was present in the society, whether it was in the belief or in the system. They would culture themselves from the wisdom of the Qur’an and then they would go to the streets to convey the message in a simultaneous manner. This is exactly what we do since Islam is complete. We culture ourselves about Islam, while giving da’wah on the street simultaneously.
