International Institute for Muslim Unity
UNITY is one of the key factors for the success and development of nations. Islam serves as a catalyst to the unification and development of the Muslim peoples, to provide leadership and moral direction for humanity. History has proven that religious and civilisational developments are only made possible through unity.
The revival of the leading role of the Muslim Ummah depends, to a great extent, on its ability to fuse all its vast resources; be it economic, political, intellectual and religious. Therefore, Muslim academicians, professionals and politicians play a significant role in propelling the strength of unity among Muslims.
Towards this end, the International Institute for Muslim Unity (IIMU) was established in 2001. It is a non-partisan institute which aims at fostering and enhancing the UNITY of the Muslim Ummah through a variety of activities such as workshops, forums, conferences, publications, studies and dialogue.
The idea of the establishment of IIMU was first mooted by Y.B. Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Sanusi Junid, the former Honourable President of IIUM. The then right Honourable Prime Minister of Malaysia, Y.A. Bhg Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad endorsed the idea and recommended that the institute be called the International Institute for Muslim Unity.
