Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) is an Islamic grassroots organization. ICNA's annual convention is one of the largest gatherings of American Muslims in the United States. The Message International is the bi-monthly publication of ICNA. organization. According to the Islamic Circle of North America, the goal of ICNA "shall be to seek the pleasure of Allah (SWT) through the struggle of Iqamat-ud-Deen (establishment of the Islamic system of life) as spelled out in the Qur'an and the Sunnah of [Muhammad]."

Their major Dawah activities include dawah field trips, a toll-free number for non-Muslims (1-877-WhyIslam), distribution of Islamic literature, dawah through mosques, dawah by mail, dawah through media, dawah in prisons, campus dawah support, dawah flyers online, and dawah through email. WhyIslam.org is an ICNA program.

Americans Against Hate, a self described "terrorism watchdog group", claims the Islamic Circle of North America has made contributions of $99,000 in charitable contributions to the Hamas terrorist organization. ICNA has denied the allegations claiming it only contributes money to "charitable causes related to emergency health care and education."
