The concepts of Islamic way of life are preserved like valuable gems in the holy pages of Al-Qur'an and Al-Hadith. Men and women can actualise those concepts in their practical life only when they are acquainted with them in true sense.

It is a matter of discomfort that a large number of the Bangla-speaking people is not, at the moment, properly aware of the teachings of Al-Qur'an and the Sunnah and the beauty and efficacy of Al-Islam. Many historical reasons are responsible for the emergence of such a state of affairs.

We are eager to present before the Bangla-speaking brothers and sisters the complete code of life emanating from Al-Qur'an and the Sunnah. We are eager to reassure them that the way of life presented by Al-Qur'an and the Sunnah has no match, has no parallel and it is is superior to all other ways of life which have sprung up from the fountain of human thinking.

Our eagerness to accomplish this noble task inspire us to found Bangladesh Islamic Centre.
