What We Do?
IDDEF is an international organisation that focuses on supporting local scholars by providing assistance to education centres such as madrasahs to improve the quality of Islamic education across the globe. In addition to our main cause, we also provide humanitarian relief, infrastructure, water-filter system projects and many more. Our company is headquartered in Istanbul, Turkey. The federation was formed in 2009 by uniting 45 associations that had been established in Anatolia. We focused on international projects in response to the high demand for assistance from Europe, Africa, and Asia.
OF COMPLETED PROJECTS
The foundations of IDDEF were laid by scholars who met in Istanbul in 2004, with the advice of our scholar Shaykh Mahmud Efendi (K.s. ), to expand and accelerate the teaching of Islamic education for madrasahs that began in Anatolia.
It was formalised as a federation in 2009, following the unification of 45 associations in various cities across Anatolia, thanks to strong public support. He eventually shifted his focus to international work and projects in response to high-demand requests for humanitarian aid assistance, particularly in Africa and Asia.

IDDEF, which operates in 309 areas across 55 countries, including Turkey, continues its educational activities in 80 Madrasahs, Complexes, and Mosques in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and the Balkans with over 550 teachers and nearly 10,000 students. As IDDEF, we will continue to provide sustainable and effective Islamic education and humanitarian aid support. We also continue all our activities with an institutional and stable administrative structure, with our central office in Istanbul working with 40 associations across 29 provinces.

Main Goal: 'Educational' Service to the Islamic World
IDDEF continues to serve countries and reach Muslims seeking Islamic education and humanitarian aid through its devotion, reliability, and consistency. Islamic World IDDEF sets out with the slogan "To serve humanity with affection" and expands its knowledge in literature circles day by day with madrasah education and activities based on two main working models. IDDEF, which started an Islamic education campaign for millions of Muslims around the world who lack education, builds madrasahs for thousands of male and female students who study knowledge and want to complete their hafiz education. In the country where the madrasa is opened, the education curriculum is prepared with the best teachers, the education is carried out with great care, efforts are made to raise the highest quality students, and the education implemented is reported every month. In addition to the monthly report distributed to donors, a general report is distributed every six months. Every year, an international '(Irşad)Seminar' is held, at which important decisions regarding improvement and development are made. IDDEF, whose cornerstone is the 'madrasa,' continues to provide services in education, activities, and Sufism, as well as develop projects for this purpose, knowing that education is the most critical issue in the Islamic world.
