The Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities (IACAD) was established in 1969 by the late ruler of Dubai HH Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum. IACAD seeks to be the first in the field of offering religious and charitable guidance and values honesty, devotion, perfection, transparency and creativity. 

IACAD’s main role is to spread Islamic culture and develop religious awareness in the region. IACAD supervises the printing of the Holy Quran, religious book and other multimedia. It also provides fatwa guidance, organizes Haj & Umrah trips to Mecca, translates religious books and issues licenses for Islamic religious teachers. IACAD also cares for mosques and supervises their management by coordinating with Awqaf and Minors Affairs Department.  
The IACAD website has some invaluable eServices including providing online religious enquiries (fatwa guidance), guidance for new Muslims, listing of all mosques in Dubai, prayer times, religious holidays and accreditation for registered charitable organizations in Dubai.
