In the name of God, the most Beneficent and the most merciful.
Muslims for Peace, Inc. and Ahlul Bayt Student Association (ABSA) humbly request your presence at the 8th Annual Prophet Muhammad (s) Day Interfaith Conference.
In recent years, it has become more apparent that little is understood about Prophet Muhammad (s). Whether it be the representation in the media or attacks on his behavior, issues prevalent today portray a one-sided approach. However, to examine the reality of the situation, to fully understand what the faults in these representations currently are, it is important to analyze Prophet Muhammad’s character, his actions, as well as this modern representation of Prophet Muhammad and people of faith from around the world.
Allah, the Almighty, states:
“And We have not sent you [Muhammed] except as a mercy to mankind” (Qur’an 21:107)
This Qur’anic verse has been proven true, for when one studies the biography of Muhammed (S), one will find that he demonstrated attributes of kindness, honesty, generosity and forgiveness, to name a few amongst many traits, to both his friends and foes. Therefore, it was his mercy and guidance that transformed one of the most barbaric societies, into a civilized state.

Omar Soltan, brother of Mohamed Soltan
Mohamed Soltan has dedicated his life to advocating for peace and justice, and now it is our turn to do so on his behalf. In demonstration of protesting against his false imprisonment and in planting firmly in the basic human right of freedom, Soltan began a hunger strike over a year ago. Without due justice, proper medical care, and with his being subjected to cruel and unusual punishment, Soltan’s health is in critical condition. He is making the ultimate sacrifice for his freedom through his protest.April 11, 2015 - 1:00 pm - April 11, 2015 - 3:00 pm
