PEOPLE LEARN MORE ABOUT ISLAM

Muslim Community Holds Forum

The hundreds who came listen to the panel and ask questions were amazed with the similarities between Christianity and Muslim. The panel said Islamic Allah, Jewish Yahweeh, and The Christian Lord are the same God which just translate differently. In all three religions, God is Love, not War.

The reason for the meeting was to make more people aware of the Islamic faith. After September 11th's tragedy, some Americans have misconceptions that all Muslims are terrorists. That is not the case.

Bin Laden's terrorist organization has called for a Muslim Holy War. Many are calling it a Jeehadd. This is not correct, because Jeehadd is not a joint struggle but a struggle within one's self.

Many people who attended say the panel enlightened their audience and had many impressed with the knowledge they learned.
