The Islamic Center of Union County invites you to meet your Muslim neighbors and
learn more about the Islamic faith during an open house on Saturday.
In our current climate of growing mistrust of outsiders and others who are "different,"
this event is a welcome gesture of openness and community spirit.
It is not the first time the center has hosted such an event — there was a well-attended
in the past that opened many people's eyes and cleared up a lot of misconceptions.
The event is from 6:00 pm . to 8 p.m. at the center at 2372 Morris Ave union NJ.
Refreshments and free literature will be available, and mosque members will be available
to answer questions about their religion.
Members want the community to know that not all followers of Islam are fanatics as
seen repeatedly on some televised news shows. Yes, there are worldwide threats made
by fanatics in terrorist groups such as the Islamic State. But, as the organizers
of Saturday's event want to point out, there are about 1.8 billion Muslims worldwide
who want what the vast majority of us want — to live in peace.
Our Muslim neighbors must not be ostracized. They are part of the fabric of our community.
They are doctors, educators, shopkeepers, carpet mill workers, and their children
attend our schools. And their numbers in places like Union County are growing.

The Islamic Center invites you to meet your Muslim neighbors and learn more about
the Islamic faith and be part of honoring people has impact on the community educators,
police , fire fighters EMT, business owners , people of Faith veterans and officials....
etc during an open house on Saturday.
Often you hear people say “Why don’t moderate Muslims speak out against terrorism?”
On Saturday, you'll have the opportunity to ask that question. Plus, you'll be able
to learn more about one of the world's major religions and realize that we all have
more in common than we thought.
An engaged Muslim community, whether through an event such as this or others, makes
us stronger, not weaker. That cannot happen without community participation. We hope
the open house will be greeted with a welcoming response from many community members.
God bless you all
