Dear Friend, Neighbor, Community Leader and Person of Faith:
I would like to invite you to a special event. There is no doubt that Islamophobia is on the rise, and that it has only led to greater problems within our national and local community. Some of these problems include attacks on religious centers and American Muslims, and even the burning of books considered sacred by millions of people. Moreover, as a member of our community we are sure that you have also had to face challenging questions and mixed facts related to Islam and American-Muslims. This is the present reality for both Muslims and people of other faiths in our country.
With this in mind, the Muslim Coalition of Connecticut (MCCT) will be sponsoring a 2-Day introductory course to address many of the issues that have come to the forefront of our discussions today. Some of these topics include: theology, law (i.e., Shari’ah), views of people of other faiths, history and women. This course is called: Windows to Islam.
