More than 500 convert to Islam in Dubai
More than 500 people converted to Islam during the first quarter of this year, according to statistics released by the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department (IACAD) in Dubai.
“Most of these Muslims learnt about Islam through friends, books, visiting Islamic centres or because of being moved by the adhan and the good treatment they received here in the UAE,” said Yusra Al Gaood, head of Edification and Religious Guidance at IACAD.
The New Muslims Section organises Islamic information programmes and interfaith dialogue activities in public places such as shopping malls and community centres.
