Past programs:

True Islam: Understanding Our Community

Join Concord resident Nasir Rana and members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community to learn about True Islam: what it is, and how to counter ignorance about the world’s second largest religion.

The True Islam and the Extremists campaign seeks to spread Islam’s message of peace. Extremists like ISIS depend on people’s ignorance of Islam in order for them to grow. The more people know about Islam’s true teachings – and what Muslims truly believe – the less they’ll fall for ISIS’s propaganda. Learn more about the campaign at www.trueislam.com.
