A leading American Islamic group and a Missouri Islamic center joined their hands to prepare a mosque open day for Trump supporters and Republicans in General, an event aimed at building bridges of understanding in a polarized country.
“It is time for us to take sincere steps to reach out to those who may have serious suspicions about Islam and American Muslims in order to make America whole again,” Faizan Syed, executive director of the Missouri chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Missouri), said in a statement shared on Facebook on Wednesday, March 15.
“We could easily hold a mosque open house and host hundreds of people who already support the Muslim community. That’s not what we want. We want to actively reach out to those who may never have met a Muslim and have a lot of misconceptions about our faith.”
Cooperating with CAIR-Missouri, the Dar-Al-Jalal Islamic Center will host a “Make America Whole Again” mosque open house for Trump supporters on Sunday, March 26.
The open house is designed to build bridges of understanding as America becomes increasingly polarized and Islam continues to be misunderstood and maligned.
