10th Year Anniversary IAIS Malaysia 2008-2018

IAIS Malaysia in conjunction with its 10th Year Anniversary which will be celebrated this year, 2018 is having several programmes and special publications in the pipeline. This one-year long planning will be carried out to revive and revisit the spirit of ‘Civilisational Renewal’ as the theme that has been driving IAIS Malaysia’s focus for the past 10 years since its establishment.

Ten years on, IAIS Malaysia continues to strive for excellence in the pursuit of its objective academic research on Islam and contemporary issues of concern to Malaysia, the Muslim world, and Islam’s engagement with other civilisations.

You are cordially invited to join us in celebrating our anniversary events, hence, supporting our noble cause for Islam and service to the ummah. Further details will be furnished from time to time. Please stay tuned to this website or Facebook Page and do join our mailing-list (below) to keep abreast of our latest updates.
