November 12th - 16th
As salaamu alaykum, May peace be upon you:
Islam is the faith of 1.6 billion people the world
over. From Albequerque to Zheijeing, this religion
houses a diversity of traditions, cultures, and
people. What is this faith? What are its beliefs?
What is it about?
It is our hope that Islam Awareness Week answers
these questions. All this week, we invite you to
experience different aspects of the Islamic culture
with informative lectures, open discussions, an
Islamic art exhibit, and even free cultural deserts in
the Union. We think this is best way to show people
how beautiful the culture of Islam really is.
The word Islam comes from 'salaam', meaning peace.
And despite the unspeakable crimes of some, we want
you to know that peace, love and human kindness are
the true teachings of our faith.
