Qibla Institute

Qibla Institute

Qibla Institute is a trade name/DBA of Talha Islamic Ministry, an official 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with tax exempt status with the IRS. The goal of T.I.M. is to improve the religious worship, education, and well being of Muslim Communities within inner-cities and or underprivileged areas. Qibla Institute is one of the efforts in achieving the aforementioned goal, with a focus on the third aspect i.e. the general well being of the Muslims in underprivileged areas. We hope to accomplish this goal by encouraging self-reliance, financial literacy, health consciousness, entrepreneurship, institution building, etc along with this being heavily coupled with the prophetic teachings that clearly instruct such. Our target audience will be young adults stepping into the work world, business owners who hope to propel their businesses to new heights, people who desire changing their condition from an employee to an employer, etc; however, all are welcomed.

The Life Skills & Self Improvement Seminar for Business Preparedness

Qibla Institute is currently organizing the β€œLife Skills and Self Improvement” seminar in an attempt to meet the challenge of improving the general well being of our community within inner cities and underprivileged areas. The following is a summary of our intent:

Long Term: This seminar is something QI hopes to organize all throughout the US in major cities including but not limited to; Los Angeles, Philadelphia, New York, Newark, Orlando, Montgomery (AL), Dallas, etc.

Short term: We are currently organizing the first seminar that will be conducted in the state of Pennsylvania -if Allah wills. This seminar will be for one day and will consist of several lectures/classes. The topics are as follows:

  • The prophetic encouragement to be entrepreneurial.
  • The prophetic encouragement of being free from the dependency of others.
  • What is a non-profit and the benefits of establishing one.
  • Tips in establishing and maintaining a successful small business.
  • Difference between an LLC and S-Corp and when to transition from one to the other.
  • Understanding the varying business models i.e. LLC, sole proprietorship, S-Corp, C-corp, etc.
  • Tips to administrators of masaajid in maximizing the full potential of their 501(c)3.

These lectures will be aimed at helping community members within underprivileged areas improve their financial situations consequently making them better providers for their families, contributors to their local communities, supporters of those genuinely in need, etc. Although we have a proposed date for the first event, this may change based on need. It is hoped that within 2022 we can establish at least 3 events of this nature in different localities.
