In 2013 The World Federation reported about the Tableegh efforts carried out by NISA, an organisation that aims to spread the teachings of the Ahlul Bayt (a) in Kosovo and Albania. Although Kosovo is a Muslim majority state, the Shia Muslims are a small minority, which is why the Tableegh activities carried out by NISA are so vital in spreading the Islam of our Holy Prophet (s.a.w).
NISA is headed by Sister Ikballe Huduti who regularly updates us with the Tableegh work the organisation is involved in. An Islamic magazine titled VLERA is published quarterly by NISA covering a wide range topics showing the true face of Islam by promoting important factors such as family values, good morals, and biographies of holy personalities. The magazine is regularly distributed to a number of institutions including colleges, ministries, schools, and is also sold at local kiosks. This is a fantastic initiative by NISA to reach out to people and promote the message of our Ahlul Bayt (a).
The magazine is just one of many projects the organisation has carried out and several more exciting plans are underway over the course of the year. Following a fantastic response to the tableegh work carried out in 2013 and 2014, The World Federation will InshaAllah continue to support NISA in their efforts to promote the true message of Islam. To read more about the work Sister Ikballe Huduti and her team are involved in you can visit their website and Facebook page, or for more information please click here.
It is important to support such organisations in their effort to spread the true message of the Prophet (s.a.w), if you would like to be a part of such tableegh projects please click here and donate generously.
