Nafsin Wahida at a Glance

"Nafsin Wahida is an organization dedicated to reinvigorating Islamic Dawah, developing new ways to reintroduced Islam to the masses." We believe that the main cause of Islamophobia is a direct result of intentional misinformation and or general ignorance of Islam. Nafsin Wahida does not limit its work to people of Islamic Faith, we seek to educate people of all faiths to what the true and universal teachings of Islam are.  Through an array of different media outlets we hope to "lift the fog" and to serve as a bridge to the peoples of the world presenting Islam in its proper light.
