Jamatu Taawunil Muslimeen

TA’AWUNU MOVEMENTS

JAMA’ATU TA’AWUNIL MUSLIMEEN {JTM}

Is an organization with a comprehensive Islamic ideology. Itcan be likened to a school of taught that preaches the pristine Islam, the central message of Allah through His prophet {peace and blessing be upon him} with a mission to remind Muslims of their past and to challenge them to remain focus on Allah’s greater and victories better dawn ahead. The Arabic word Ta’awun means ‘’cooperation, alliance or help’’. The name Islam derived from Qur’an 5 verse 2, which says, ‘’Help you one another in Al- Birr and At- Taqwa {virtue, righteousness and piety}; but do not help one another in sin and transgression.’’

Ta’wun is an embodiment of thoughtful ideas, vision and mission that remind you of commitment to Dawah and methodology of the Holy Prophet {peace and blessing upon him}, calling to the true and practical teaching of the final Messenger Muhammad {peace and blessing be upon him} who lived an exemplary virtuous life as commanded by his creator in all aspects of life, both inthe spiritual and mundane.

JTM is salafin creed, sunni in syllabus, Haraki in action and contemporary in thinking and planning. Its emergence was not accidental, but a carefully planned, well focus and a greatly determined movement, moving with the mission and vision to rescue { in sha ALLAH}  this generation  and ones to come from the shackles  of oppression of human values.

This DawahFrontlines came into existence when Muslim Ummah {in Nigeria, especially, the south Western part} was about to lose hope, it was a period when Muslims had no rights to worth to their names and treated as if in serfdom. A time when there was no respect for Muslims in the society and their rights as human beings were being trampled upon and less recognized.

The organization understands that Islam is not just a religion as many do erroneously think but think a complete way of life which includes socio-political, socio-economic value systems and beliefs embed in Islamic anthropological fabrics. It also touches upon the materials as well as spiritual dimensions of human existence and considers that all humans’ thoughts anddeeds should be anchored on God’s consciousness.

Islam, that Ta’wun believes in, is a practical one, where faith and actions work simultaneously. It is which teaches that faith by its self is not enough until it is transformed in to action. According to the saying of the prophet Muhammad {peace and blessing be upon him}; ‘’Faith does not depend on raising hopes, but it is something which is firmly established in the hearth and testified to  by action…….’’, thus, faith without action is like a bird without wings {bird which though may hop with its companions on earth, can and will never fly with them to heaven} – and this is the nature of the present Muslims. So, Ta’wun strives to make a average Muslims understands that inner beliefs as well as outward actions should stand together to define who a good Muslim is.
