In the name of God, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.
Join us on Saturday January 26th, 2019, for the eighth annual A Journey Into Islam exhibition and open house. A Journey Into Islam is an initiative undertaken by the youth of the Az-Zahraa Islamic Centre, designed to convey the core beliefs and practices of the Islamic faith in an interactive and comprehensible manner. We aim to create a comfortable environment in which guests are welcome to ask questions and engage in dialogue with members of our community.
The goal of the event is to showcase our faith through an evening full of interactive exhibits, guided tours of our beautiful Centre filled with Islamic history and artifacts, and a tasty ethnic dinner. The exhibits are designed to address various elements of our faith and to clear long-standing misconceptions regarding Islam. For more on what you can expect to see during the evening, visit our Exhibits page.
The theme of this year's event is 'Women in Islam.' Women have historically played a key role in the development and expansion of the religion of Islam, and they continue to play an even bigger role in Islamic society today. This year, we hope to explore the role of Women throughout Islamic history all the way to modern times. Please join us to learn more!
