Last year, World Museum hosted a fantastic event allowing visitors to have plenty of fun while discovering more about the Islamic faith. We're very excited that the event will be returning this year, and event organiser Dr Zohaib Khan is here to tell us what's in store:
"It is with a great sense of excitement and pleasure that we can announce that the Discover Islam event returns to World Museum, Liverpool on Saturday 15 February 2014. This unique event was a great success when it was last held at the museum and boasted a record number of visitors. When we were invited to return to the museum, there was only ever going to be one answer.
Discover Islam showcases the beauties of Islam, a faith followed by over 1.7 billion people! This event aims to give an introduction to Islamic beliefs and celebrates the beauty and essence of Islam.
With numerous activities planned for the day, there will be something for people of all ages and interests. Activities include fun and games for children, henna tattooing and Arabic calligraphy – all of which are completely free.
The event also highlights the major contributions made by Islamic beliefs in various fields of life, including those of science, law, architecture and human rights.
This is a fantastic opportunity to broaden your horizons, learn more about the captivating spirit of Islam and discover the true beauties of this global faith. This is undoubtedly an event not to be missed. Be sure to come along and Discover Islam!"
