The consistent promotion of the development of Islam and awareness-raising through diverse means and activities as well as the provision of livelihood to Sierra Leoneans, support and empowerment to less privileged Muslims are some of the fundamental objectives of the establishment of YADI.
The purpose of this project is primarily to discourage the idea that Islam is a violent and boring religion, to recognize the efforts of people who have worked tremendously hard for the development of Islam and to inspire others to do more to develop Islam, with the objective of projecting the beauty of Islam through entertainment in “halaal” (islamically accepted) means.
The project comprises of two components:
- Projection of the beauty of Islam through entertainment.
- Presentation of Awards and Certificates to deserving Muslims who have participated immensely in the development of Islam in Sierra Leone.
The implementation of this project will be done within the festive season and will be undertaken in one day which will be 24th December, 2017.
The project focuses on two fundamental aspects which are: Islamic Entertainment and Award to deserving Muslims who have left a landmark in the history of the development of Islam in Sierra Leone.
The project would start with consultative meetings with scholars and other concerned bodies and individuals on the development of the initiative as per the expectations of Islamic norms.
