Irish Muslim Peace & Integration Council established
IMPIC established by influential Muslim community leaders under the leadership of Shaykh Dr. Umar Al-Qadri
Irish Muslim Peace & Integration Council is a national representative Muslim body established by influential Irish Muslim community leaders from various different backgrounds under the leadership of Irish Muslim scholar Shaykh Dr. Umar Al-Qadri.
Shaykh Al-Qadri has been leading the Muslim community in Ireland since his arrival in Ireland in 2004. As an Imam of the Al-Mustafa Islamic Centre in Blanchardstown he also frequently travelled to Cork, Athlone, Port Laoise, and Belfast to guide the Muslim communities in these cities.
Shaykh Al-Qadri has been representing the Irish Muslims on various governmental and non governmental bodies and hence when he invited some influential Irish Muslim community leaders to be part of IMPIC, his invitation was accepted with enthusiasm.
After many meetings, discussions and debates the constitution of IMPIC was finalised.
Irish Muslim Peace & Integration Council is an independent body, established to provide a forum where the Irish Muslim Community can speak as one recognised voice on matters relating to their well-being in Ireland, and help promote ways of integrating effectively in the community and promote the true teachings of Islam.
Irish Muslim Peace & Integration Council is a non-sectarian body working for the common good without interfering in, displacing or isolating any existing Muslim work in the community.
It is a broad-based, representative organisation of Muslims in Ireland, accommodating and reflecting the variety of social and cultural backgrounds and outlook of the community.
Irish Muslim Peace & Integration Council is pledged to work for the common good of society as a whole; encouraging individual Muslims and Muslim organisations to play a full and participatory role in Irish public life.
Irish Muslim Peace & Integration Council is a democratic body, built on consultation, co-operation and co-ordination among concerned Muslims throughout the Island of Ireland.
