Shura Council Booth at World Peace Conference
The Islamic Shura Council of Southern California in cooperation with ICNA/WhyIslam participated in a Dawah and Outreach Booth at the Rotary World Peace Conference in Ontario, CA on January 15 and 16, 2016.
The conference drew more than 1,500 people of diverse faiths and ethnicity from across Southern California working together for world peace. Representing Muslims of Southern California, Dr Muzammil Siddiqi, Chairman of the Shura Council, spoke about Islam and its core teachings at the conference.
Many guests visited the Shura Council information table with their questions and curiosity about Islam, Muslims and global geopolitics. The Shura Council volunteers answered their questions and also offered free translations of the Holy Qur’an in English and Spanish and various pamphlets on myriad topics.
Several visitors also expressed their interest in inviting Muslim speakers to their respective places of worship, organizations and communities. Guests also received free informational and educational material on Islam, including more than 100 Qur’ans.
Shura Council urges the community to engage in similar outreach efforts to negate the prevalent toxic xenophobic rhetoric that is corroding the spirit of America.
