Americans Visit Illinois Mosque, See Their Reaction

A group of American guests have visited the ISNS masjid in Rolling Meadows in Illinois in an event hosted to promote the message of peace and understanding of Islam, The Siasat Daily reported.

During the visit, hosted earlier this month, guests were given copies of the English translation of the Holy Qur’an and free Islamic literature.

They were introduced to the art of Islamic calligraphy that was set up at the demonstration booth for the guests.

Speaking to Dr. Sabeel Ahmed, who was from Hyderabad, the guests called this method an excellent step in promoting religious tolerance.

Muslims across the world usually open the doors of their mosques to guests to enable them have a glimpse of their faith and proper understanding of its teachings.

For example, Visit My Mosque Day is held annually in a number of countries including Australia, the United Kingdom, Norway, and France.

In the UK, it first began in February 2015, with around 20 mosques taking part.

About 250 mosques participated in this year’s event held last February, seeing growth from 200 mosques in 2018 and 150 mosques in 2017.

In Canada, the first-ever Visit My Mosque Day took place on October 2017.

Last October, some 100,000 non-Muslims visited more than 900 mosques across Germany.
