Three months after opening office in Lusaka, Zambia, Islamic Information Bureau is leaving no stone unturned as it again opened another office at Monkey Bay trading centre in Mangochi district.
“In the effort to make sure that Muslims in Malawi are getting full access to Islamic information, we have honour to inform all Muslims that we have opened a new office at Monkey trading centre in Mangochi district,” Sheikh Chienda, organisation’s administrator told Malawi Muslim Official Website in a telephone interview.
When asked, why they have chosen Monkey Bay yet there is already another office in Mangochi, Sheikh Chienda said:
“Other Muslims were unable to get access to Islamic studies due to the long distance which is there between Monkey Bay and Mangochi , so we decided to bridge this gap first.
“Secondly, we want to save imaan [faith] which is already there among Muslims –they have to know more about their religion because without doing that, that it is why you see other people converting to other denominations because they are lacking information- which is bad to our Muslim community.”
Among other dignitaries who graced the event are deputy information minister, honourable, Tasizio Gowero, Mufti Cassim Abbas, T/A Chowe and many others.
Islamic Information Bureau is one of the non-profit organizations in Malawi and is funded by Mai Aisha Trust, local Islamic charitable organization.
The organization plans to establish offices in every district in the Country according to the administrator, Sheikh Ahmed Chienda.
