A Brazilian family received some information about Islam at Kurtulus Mosque in Nevsehir in Urgup and listened to the Qur’an for around 40 minutes.
Father Jorge Bonassa (50), mother Edva Bonassa (53) and the children Andre Bonassa (20) and Marcelo Bonassa (16) asked some questions about Islam to Mr Ismail Oruc, the imam of the Mosque. Ozay Onur, the guide, explained: “The imam’s close interest and kind manners and his recital of the Qur’an with his beautiful voice as well as giving information about the religion of Islam impressed the family. Their friends in Brazil have already converted Islam, that is how they came to have interest in Islam. They asked us for a Qur’an translation in Portugal language. We presented them an English translation of the Qur’an.”
Mr Jorge Bonassa stated that they received very good information about Islam religion and were really impressed by the local people’s kind manners towards them. “The real face of Islam is peace. That is what we understand here and we became very happy.”
