On Saturday, March 11th, Islam area Mosques invited the community to visit and learn about the Islamic faith. Visit a Mosque Day encouraged residents to tour the cultural experience of what Muslims believe and practice. Al-Farooq Masjid of Atlanta is a community centered Mosque with an inclusive theme of love, acceptance, and tolerance. Muslims specifically within the United States want to show that their faith and belief in the Quran is a universal faith, which provides a clear understanding of a person’s relationship with God, purpose in life, and ultimate destiny.
Today, Muslims within the United States are being persecuted for their faith based on false propaganda and quite frankly hate. Travel bans, among other forms of discrimination, have heightened a negative perception that Muslims equate to terrorism. Muslims want the world to know that they are a people of love and an open community that believe in pillars such as testimony of faith, prayer, charity, fasting, and pilgrimage. The faith of Islam is ultimately a practical way of life that positively transforms people’s individual connection to God and fellow humans.
