The History of IPSI
Islamic Propagation Society International (Penang, Malaysia) is a Non-Government, Non-Political Organization, popularly known as IPSI.
The primary concern of IPSI is none other than to disseminate the word of Allah via the sincere promotion of the reading, understanding and practising of the Qur’an and As-Sunnah. IPSI devotes its activities in reminding mankind of his fitrah; the worship of the One and Only God.
IPSI’s message is simple and direct. Our call is the call of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (may Allah exalt his mention), the voice which calls on humanity as a whole to awake and hearken to the sublime message from the Lord, Cherisher and Creator of all the worlds. IPSI struggles to deliver the message of Islam to people from all walks of life through its public lectures, seminars, forums, exhibitions and various assortments of printed and electronic mediums.
The initial da’wah promotion began primarily centred around Masjid Kapitan Keling, mainly in guiding non-Muslim tourists around this historical mosque which is the second oldest in Penang. The minaret of this mosque is still being used as an Islamic information centre, courtesy of the committee members of the mosque
With the help of local donors initially, IPSI’s financial standing grew from a meagre humble sum and is still growing (Alhamdulillah!) to accommodate the ever increasing scope of da’wah activities run by IPSI. The ummah has been ever enthusiastic in supporting our activities in the name of Allah in putting up a second front in spreading His Divine Message.
The early operational office was at Kompleks Masyarakat Penyayang, Georgetown, Penang. In 2011, Alhamdulillah, with the support of donors, IPSI moved in to a four storey building in Jalan Argyll, Penang. The building is named ‘IPSI Building’. IPSI building was converted to a fully operational centre complete with a book shop, library, lecture auditorium, classrooms, counselling room, management office and a multipurpose hall/garden.
Most of IPSI’s activities are held at IPSI building. This includes Qur’an classes, public lectures, new muslims classes, counselling, syahadahs and also other religious events.
