The Lagos State Council of the Ansaru-Ud-Deen Youth Association of Nigeria (ADYAN), a youth wing of the Ansaru-Ud-deen Society of Nigeria, has concluded plans to engage its youths in profitable ventures through training in various skills for entrepreneurial freedom.
The event, which is powered by the Lagos State Council of the association, is aimed at propagating the ‘peaceful message of Islam’ to the world, and will hold from December 24 2018 to January 1, 2019 at the Ansar Ud-Deen College, Isolo, Lagos as part of activities for the 2018 edition of its annual Dawah Camp with the theme: Changing the Narratives.
The major highlights of the camping exercise include lectures on the teachings of Islam and how it can be communicated to the world to correct existing narratives. The youths among other things will be taught how to follow peace and abhor terrorism.
Founded in 1923, the society has as its core aim, the propagation and dissemination of the messages, teachings and lessons of Islam. The organization further desires to encourage peace and discourage terrorism in the world.
