As an Islamic country, Bangladesh is not very successful compared to other Islamic countries. Most of the people in Bangladesh are Muslim. But unfortunately a lot of them don’t know Islam properly. Either their knowledge of Islam is less or misguided. As a result there are lots of con-ventional ideas running these days which mostly are entirely or partially wrong. There are many differences of opinions about the same ritual. And there are some rituals or beliefs which are being practiced are either wrong or do not exist according to the main deed of Islam the holy ‘Quran’.
The reason behind these is the sources providing the knowledge about Islam are not strong enough. Basically these sources are mosque and madrasahs. Though mosques or madrasahs are the direct link to Islam to Muslims, they should not be considered as the only or the final source. Because even different mosques or madrasahs have differences on opinions. In lot of cases the imams who lead the mosques are not properly trained. They lack in general knowledge which prevents them to question the system or the knowledge or the traditions that if they are right or wrong. So if those who are supposed to lead are not strong enough, how can they be trusted as right or should they be trusted as right?
People also don’t get much options to learn about the religion they are following. There are dif-ferences between person to person about the way of saying the prayer. Some people don’t even know the proper system of the prayer. The reason behind that is other than the ignorance of one is, the lacking in learning and understanding. Though there are libraries and some organizations which might help but sometimes they are not enough help. There are scholars in the society who knows a lot but they are not reachable always to the general people.
So if there was a place from where people can go to get to know the proper way and the science of Islam it would be beneficial for a society such as ours. Because it would be better to know a religion correctly rather than following it blindly.
This project would be an institute for knowing and developing the knowledge of Islam. This place will not only be limited for Muslims but anyone of any religion can participate. Because Islam is not restricted for Muslims only. Anyone; Muslim or not can come here and gain knowledge about Islam, its rituals, its history and science. It will be a place for enlightenment. People can practice and learn more about Islam.
