God is the light of the heavens and the earth. [Quran: 24:35]
The Islamic Understanding Institute (IUI) was established to heighten the appreciation and understanding of Islam for citizens of Bay County and the Panhandle area. 
The Quran says:
O ! We have created you from a single (pair) of and female,and made you into nations and tribes,that you may know one another (not that you may hate each other). Surely,the most honorable of you, in the Sight ofAllah is (he, who is) the most righteous of you. Verily, Allah is All Knowing and is Well-Aware (of all things).
