Our Mission & Vision

The Islamic Learning Foundation (ILF) is an institute developed to provide a solid foundation of Islamic literacy and spiritual development. ILF seeks to provide a holistic approach of Islamic personality-development through mentorship and didactics.

The Islamic Learning Foundation (ILF), an educational Islamic institution based in New York. The main objective for ILF is enriching their minds and affecting their hearts with sound knowledge of Islamic Shariah thus deepening their awareness of Islam as a universal and eternal way of living for mankind and providing a new caliber of Muslim leaders.


‘Indeed, the number of months with Allah is twelve [lunar] months in the register of Allah [from] the day He created the heavens and the earth; of these, four are sacred. That is the correct religion, so do not wrong yourselves during them…’
[Qur’an, 9:36]

The four sacred months of Islam are Muharram, Rajab, Dhul-Qa’dah and Dhul-Hijjah. Regarding this verse, Qatadah (rh) said:

Allah has chosen elites from His creation: from among the angels He chose Messengers, from among mankind He chose Messengers, from aming speach He chose remembrance of Him (dhikr), from among spaces on earth He chose Ramadan and the sacred months...So, venerate that which has been chosen by Allah, for people of understanding and wisdom respect that which has been chosen by Him'. (Tafseer Ibn Katheer)

Thus, Dhul-Qa’dah is an elite month simply because Allah (swt) has chosen it to be so. As He says in the Qur’an, ‘And your Lord creates what He wills and chooses; not for them was the choice. Exalted is Allah and high above what they associate with Him’. [Qur’an, 28:68]

It is important to respect the month which Allah has chosen to be sacred, for reasons He knows best. Allah commands us not to ‘wrong ourselves’ during Dhul-Qa’dah, which means we should be extra-careful about fulfilling our obligations and not falling into sin.
