The role of the institute with new Muslims
The role of the Islamic Institute Dar el Huda in Amsterdam has become very important within Dutch society, especially in recent years, where an increasing number of converts to Islam have seen it. This increase in the number of converts to Islam has to do with getting to know and researching moderate and tolerant Islam. In this they learn from Islam love, peace, morality and the worship of Allah alone, contrary to what they believed in some religions.
As a Dutchman of Polish descent stated on Friday, January 8, 2020, after his testimony at the Institute’s headquarters, saying: I realized that I had been in a serious mistake all my life, then he added: Through my study of Islam before I embraced Islam, I learned that Islam requires it. The Muslim is honest, has high morals and the focus of the believer’s life is to work for the hereafter while not forgetting the world in accordance with the command of Allah the Exalted “Seek with that (prosperity) what Allah has given you, the House of the Hereafter, and do not forget your share of lawful amusement in this world and do good as Allah does good for you” (al Qasas verse 77) Since western society in general and Dutch society in general has especially lost this spiritual relationship with Allah, as no one cares about religious matters and the world has become their preoccupation, Islam, with the strength of its faith and ease of understanding, and its explicit message calling for a direct relationship between man and his Lord, and the balance of his approach between the everyday, or the material and spiritual, and the lack of neglect of human humanity, besides t the focused religious, educational and social activities that the Institute offers to this segment, all this and others attracted the Dutch and brought them back to their spirituality, so much so that many of them recently converted to Islam at the Institute’s headquarters , and some of them study the basics of the religion with desire and honesty in the institute.
