Hundreds of mosques throughout Germany opened their doors to the general public on Friday, allowing people from other faiths to get first-hand information about Islam.
More than 50,000 visitors took advantage of the 12th "Day of Open Mosques" to explore the houses of worship and pose questions about Islam, according to the Coordination Council of Muslims and the Turkish Muslim group DITIB.
Islam secures freedom of thought, life and ideas. In religion of Islam, people are preached and reminded, but there is no pressure and compulsion. Allah states this manner in Islam in the Quran as:
“There is no compulsion where the deen is concerned. Right guidance has become clearly distinct from error.” (Surat al Baqara, 256)
“So remind them!You are only a reminder.” (Surat al Ghashiyya)
Christians in Europe who visit the mosques, see that there is no compulsion but only communication of true religion.
