1. A voluntary Islamic education centre, ‘Gain Peace’ in Illinois has displayed such hoardings in cities like Dallas, Chicago, and Middle New Jersey giving a message about similarities in all religions and eliminating wrong things in them.
2. On one billboard, Mother Mary is shown in ‘hijab’ with the message ‘The fortunate Mary wore ‘hijab’. Will you honour it ?’ On another hoarding, there is a photo of ‘Kaaba’ mosque from Mecca in Saudi Arabia, on which it is written ‘An annual pilgrimage place of billions of Muslims created by Ibrahim dedicated to worshipping of God’.
We have to have faith in Jesus and Mary too for being Muslims !
A member of ‘Gain Peace’ from Houston said that many people were calling them up and asking about the similarities between Islam and Christianity. We tell them that we have to have faith even in Jesus and Mary to be Muslims. They are surprised when we tell them so.
