Our Focus


The Islamic Education Trust (IET), through the Dawah Institute of Nigeria (DIN). works on developing materials and training resources towards promoting inter and intra-faith peaceful co-existence as well as the prevention of violent extremism both in urban and rural areas in different parts of the world. The trainees undergo Personal Development and Leadership course to empower them to take leadership roles in their various communities.

Through the DIN Research and Training Unit, the IET developed its signature course - the Train-the-Trainers Course in Islam and Dialogue for Peaceful Coexistence fondly called the "TTC". The organisation also published an introductory book called the Shariah Intelligence, developed from a course of the same name to portray the tools of Islamic Jurisprudence and how to use them to achieve peace. You can learn more about it at the by following this link.


​Our foremost commitment to human development has inspired us to take the education of the next generation of Muslims more serious. This commitment has earned one of our schools the Best Muslim Schools in Africa. Award.

To ensure a balanced dose of moral and intellectual development for Muslim children, the Islamic Education Trust established three standard model schools - the New Horizons Nursery and Primary School (NHNP) in Minna, the Sunrise International Primary School (SIPS) in Abuja, and the New Horizons College (NHC) in Minna.

Each of our schools is among the most respected schools in the country. Learn more about the New Horizons College which was nominated the best Muslim school in Africa.


The Islamic Education Trust (IET), has helped many people at different levels of needs find solutions to their individual challenges across West Africa especially in Nigeria, Liberia, Sierra Leon, Chad, Niger and Cameroon, all through the Development Initiatives of West Africa (DIWA). Through DIWA, IET has helped refurbish from grounds up the Minna Orphanage, and even sponsor the education of some of the orphans.

With the Girls Identified for Training, Education and Development (GIFTED), program developed by DIWA, the IET has provided full university level scholarships to 10 underprivileged girls from northern Nigeria.


We believe the problem of the world is too big to contain. So we open our doors to work with like-minded organisations within our domain.

We are a member organisation of the Dawah Co-Ordinating Council of Nigeria (DCCN). We also work with some peace-minded Christian organisations on a variety of interfaith initiatives to solve our social and communal challenges.

We have also worked with organisation like the Ihsan Foundation, helping them execute some welfare projects across West Africa.

​The Islamic Education Trust has also partnered with some international organisations to develop some vital scriptural documents. Our roles in those partnerships have mostly been that of technical contributors from the Islamic perspectives.
