All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds, and peace and blessings be upon the last of all Messengers and Prophets, our Prophet Muhammad, and upon his family and Companions. To proceed:
Indeed, one of Allah's great favors on us is that He placed us in the vicinity of His Sacred House, employed us as instruments in the service of knowledge and its seekers, and entrusted us with the task of enjoining good and forbidding evil. Almighty Allah says in His Noble Book: "You are the best of people ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin good and forbid evil" (Al-`Imran 3:110). Accordingly, the special quality about this nation lies in enjoining good and forbidding evil, working side by side with faith in Allah, the Most Exalted.
Nevertheless, the promotion of good and the prevention of evil must be based on sound knowledge, so that all actions (carried out in this regard) are in accordance with (established Islamic) knowledge. Pursuant to that came the foundation of the Higher Institute for Enjoining Good and Forbidding Evil to extract and study the foundations of this duty according to Shari`ah, and to qualify and train those who will undertake this mission.
Websites are one of the effective means of spreading knowledge and communicating with beneficiaries of learning; therefore, the institute was keen to launch this website and provide it with everything that can help achieve the mission of the institute.
Finally, all praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds, and peace and blessings be upon our honest, trustworthy Prophet.
