IDM PUBLICATIONS AND RESEARCH UNIT is a division of the Islamic Dawah Movement of Southern Africa. The primary thrust of the unit is to search, research and publish selective and relevant topics on Islam especially for the region of Southern Africa. It has published numerous titles, (books and leaflets) as well as translations of the Quran, in 3 major local languages, Alhamdulillah. The unit concentrates on already published works, which are out of print, but are relevant to the region and in keeping with our aims and objectives.
IDM has published titles primarily in English. However, its publications include titles in the Xhosa, Zulu, Afrikaans, Oshiwambo and Burrundi languages. A major objective of this Unit, through its publications, is to eliminate ambiguity and misconceptions of certain issues within the value system of Islam; hoping thereby to present the real and authentic Islam to both the Muslims and Non-Muslims alike. The IDM Publications And Research Unit intends to continue to publish a variety of topics on Islam that would primarily aid a better understanding of the true Islam amongst the people of Southern Africa and thereby help to catalyse the process of Islamisation regionally and globally. The overall aim and objective of this Unit is to present Islamic principles and values to Muslims and Non-Muslims in order to help them understand this religion and way of life, which advocates unity, justice, brotherhood, tolerance and peace, which is Islam.
