Although there is no official accreditation, participants will still gain Islamic knowledge and hands-on experience with regards to performing Da’wah. Participants will also receive certificate of participation after completing the programme.
There are two types of modules: theoretical and practical.
Theoretical modules will have Islamic scholars or experts in a certain field to conduct the training. After each training session, there will be an activity or breakout discussion to be completed in class.
Practical modules will require participants to receive experiential and hands-on learning. For example, participants will assist mosque staff on sharing about Islam to visitors, primarily tourists.
