About Us > Our Approach
By exposing the religious leaders to new environments, thereby creating vulnerability and removing fear.
By exposing them to unfamiliar concepts, tools and processes and introducing them to new ideas and ways of thinking.
By appealing to their imagination based on their frame of reference, which is the Islamic legal principles and practices.
The framework is being used to mobilize Muslim religious leaders to address different issues related to development, governance, health, and education. This unique and innovative framework for “Facilitating the Promotion of the Sanctity and Dignity of Life”, which is based on Maqasid Al-Shari’ah and Fiqh-ul-Ihya supports and guides all our activities.
IIPC has developed strong and collaborative relationships with the Gates Foundation, UNDP, WHO, USAID, the Sultan foundation for peace and Development, Forum for Peace in Muslim Societies, Union of African Scholars, Network for Religious and Traditional Peacemakers, URI Africa, among others; all of whom recognize the vital role of religion and FBOs in making progress on the SDGs.

Thought > Desire > Aspiration
Explore the present and the future hopes and opportunities/ promises of each and how to fight fears together – what will make the future a success or could lead to failures.
Action > Habit
Exploit the hopes and opportunities and fight fears together.
