This will enable them to ward off doubts, learn and present a clear image of Islam and face the various challenges of their time. This in turn will help them interface and work with others on building a united world with a dignified humanity.

Institute Finances

The institute will go through several stages until it is able to finance its own buildings and all necessary facilities needed to reach its goals.

It will mainly rely on self-sufficiency through registration fees, tuitions and other means. Manara will also open the door to volunteering work in beneficial knowledge. Such good actions stays with the person after his death and upon meeting his Lord.
