Event Details

We live in a time where many of the images we see about Islam are ugly: terrorism, poverty, intolerance, fear, war. These are all common practices we see linked to a faith of Islam and to the Muslims. Very rarely we see Islam connected with something beautiful or being recognized as a beautiful faith itself. This is urgent call to all people of faith to come and seek understanding and let this month be a gate to seek understanding and cooperation.
This is an invitation to ignore what the media has told you, and come and hear the truth about Islam and Muslims. All are welcome, young, old, black, white, Arab, American. It is an open invitation to all mankind of all times.
