4th Biennial General Conference of NASFAT opens in Accra

Over Seven Hundred (700) members of Nasrul-L-Fatih Society with diverse background from over five Countries including the USA and the UK are expected to converge at the University Ghana, Legon, for two days conference slated for 22nd and 23rd December 2017.

The conference under theme: NASFAT: "Aligning with global diversity", will see two renowned Islamic Scholars Sheikh Sihanouk Arimiyah, Ghana and Sheikh Fausul Rahaman, the UK to speak on the topics: "Growing NASFAT on global scene; The culture approach and managing the expansion of Da'Wah on a global scene respectively".

Speaking at the media encounter ahead the global conference, the International President of The Society, Engineer Kamil Yomi Bolarinwa, said the overall objective of NASFAT is to have a society whose members are united in their commitment to the tenets of Islam and promotion of positive fellow feeling, adding that, "we aspire to be Number one Islamic society, with members who are enlightened Muslims, nurtured by true understanding of Islam in the world and Number One Islamic society for research and in Islamic publications."

According to him, the choice of the theme is premised on their realization that the essential meaning and effects of diversity are often undermined because its management is relatively appreciated.

He believes, "as a society diversity management is a key to growth; it is our desire to make it authentic.

"Our quest for Global relevance requires us to embrace diversity; in how we think, act, and innovate within the limits allowed by our religion".

"With this theme, in this conference, we are seeking to explore the principle of diversity as a divine phenomenon for internal growth and external relevance across the Globe."

NASFAT is an organisation which is in over two hundred locations across the world.

It is also an organization that has members all over the world supplicating to Allah using a uniform set of the mode of worship on Sundays and within the same period of time which we call our Asalatu sessions.

"Our society, NASFAT prides itself with the belief in the glorious Quran and the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (SAW) that there is no compulsion in religion and man must live in peace and we work", Engineer Kamil noted.
