On Feb. 17, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community held a Quran exhibition at Centreville Regional Library between 3 and 6 p.m. Translations of the Quran in 43 different languages were on display. There were also posters detailing various aspects of the teachings of the Quran including women’s rights, Islam and science, and the concept of Jihad.
Through such exhibitions, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community intends to present the true teachings of Islam and the Quran and hopes to reach out to those who wish to familiarize themselves with Islam and its teachings. Saud Iqbal, who organized the event said, “In response to the allegations made against Islam, we have organized events like this in order to bring forward the true face of Islam and clarify exactly what the Quran teaches. We would like as many people as possible to come and benefit from this great opportunity.”
The Ahmadiyya Community plans to hold many more Quran exhibitions. The next one will be held on Friday, Feb. 24, 2012 from 3 to 6 p.m at Centreville Regional Library. For more information please contact Saud Iqbal at 703-627-1097.
