Find out more about us.

What is the aim of the EIF?
EIF aims to provide accessible, accurate and factual information on Islam and Muslims for mainstream audiences.

Who runs EIF?
EIF was established and is managed by a dynamic group of British Muslim professionals from diverse backgrounds – academics, journalists, consultants, art directors and researchers.

How is EIF funded?

EIF is a not for profit initiative and is funded by private donations.

What links does EIF have with other organisations?

EIF is an independent organisation and as such it has no links with other community or governmental organisations. However, it hopes to build strategic alliances with organisations which share its vision for a pluralistic and mainstream Islam. We aim to build coalition with partners across different sectors and work towards reducing ignorance and misinformation about Islam and Muslims, and to foster greater harmony among all communities.

Does EIF represent British Muslims?

EIF does not represent British Muslims; rather it seeks to articulate a contextualised, dynamic and accessible vision of Islam.

Is EIF a missionary organisation?

No. EIF does not seek to preach or proselytise. Our objective is to firmly challenge stereotypes and misconceptions about the Islamic faith and Muslims. It aims to demonstrate that Islam is a mainstream British faith.
