WAMY UK, the Muslim World League London in conjunction with Islamic Cultural Centre organised a major Islamic awareness event. Open doors, stories and journey’s the inspirational event, which captured the interest of many, was targeted to all non Muslims, inviting them to look at Islam from a different glance.
The main purpose of the event was to dissolve social tensions between the Muslim community and the western community, to promote community cohesion and peace between the two worlds.
The event comprised of various activities, it was an action packed day filled with many exciting activities. Visitors had the opportunity to engage in many activities, which included, Henna paintings, Arabic calligraphy, face painting and engaging in the art of marbling. A selection of Islamic videos was also being viewed, for those who wanted to deepen their understanding about Islam. A display of sweets, hijabs, colourful posters, Islamic artefacts was also exhibited at the event.

Alhamdulilah this event helped to change the stereotypical misconstrued image some had about islam. Common western misconceptions and stereotypical views many had prior to the event were dissolved, and replaced with an impartial and comprehensive view of Islam.
Post 9-11-2001, Islam has taken centre stage in world affairs. Bad publicity, distortion and onslaught about Islam and Muslims have become easy targets by scores of journalists, broadcasters, academics, and policy makers.
Muslims in the west cannot afford to sit back. We have to respond, in a better, kinder and gentler manner.
Our duty is to invite and educate non-Muslims about the true teachings of Islam. Our outreach efforts have to be constructive and greater in quantity and quality.
The Discover Islam projects seek to do exactly that. Our exhibition material, books, leaflets and multimedia material are ideal for delivering the very beautiful message of Islam.
