NEW YORK, NY (January 16, 2016) – Today as we remember the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on MLK Day we note that with increasing hateful rhetoric among certain political aspirants, racism continues to be entrenched in American society despite the work of Dr. King and others like him.
The 877-WHY-ISLAM project was launched in 1999 by volunteers associated with Islamic Circle of North America (I.C.N.A.). It derives inspiration from the following Quranic verse:
“Invite all to the way of thy Lord, With wisdom and beautiful preaching, And argue with them, In ways that are best and most gracious” (16:125).
The project’s foremost aim is to provide accurate information about Islam, the fastest growing religion in the world which is practiced by over 1.6 billion people across the globe. In doing so, it hopes to dispel popular stereotypes and persistent misconceptions about Islam and Muslims.
