Now that people are waking up to sharia and the term rightfully carries a negative connotation, this madrassa has undergone a name change from Sharia Academy to the nondescript Mishkah. The organization caught our attention with it’s dawah on Twitter. After a quick search, it’s clear they are all about sharia and spreading Islam.
Mishkah – A new name for new beginnings. Our name change is symbolic of many transformations within your university intended to make your learning experience more enriching and fulfilling. It also marks the formal merger between Sharia Academy and International University of Latin America.
The Sharia Academy is marketing itself as an “accredited university” in North America but it appears the only accreditation it has is through it’s merger with the International University of Latin America. The reason it merged with IULA, based in Panama, was to spread Islam and sharia to South and Central America.
Thus our decision to establish the main center of learning in the Republic o f Panama was due to its strategic location in between Central and South America…
They are however based out of the US and Egypt (home of the Muslim Brotherhood), and have branches in Houston, Detroit and Montreal:
4111 Central Avenue NE Suite 207, Columbia Heights MN 55421-2955 USA
1 Zaker Hussein Street, 3rd floor, Nasr City, Cairo Egypt
Most of the “faculty” are from Egypt’s Al-Azhar University. That should set off alarm bells for anyone worried about the infiltration of Islamic sharia law – that is what these people are teaching with a goal getting it established in the Americas.
