American Muslims have initiated a major campaign on the subject of Islam. Traveling around Chicago in a bus bearing a sign saying, “ISLAM” Got Questions? Get Answers! American Muslims responded to all kinds of questions on the subject of Islam and have been instrumental in 14 Americans accepting the faith.
The Americans involved are providing a great service with the aim of eradicating prejudice against Islam and providing true information on Islamic moral values.
This campaign, being run within the scope of the ICNA’s (Islamic Circle of North America) GainPeace project, was initiated in order to preach Islam to non-Muslims and to clarify misconceptions that they may hold due to biased reports in the media.
The team traveling on the bus through the streets of Chicago stop frequently, preach the oneness of Allah and invite people to Islam in order to become acquainted with the true faith of all the prophets of Allah.
Muslims have an important responsibility to be instrumental in people attaining true guidance and to ensure they avoid what is evil by showing them what is good. However, it is only our Almighty Lord Who will bestow guidance. This responsibility incumbent upon believers is revealed as follows in the Qur’an:
Let there be a community among you who call to the good, and enjoin the right, and forbid the wrong. They are the ones who have success. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 104)
