A public exhibition promoting the peaceful teachings of Islam will be front and centre at Red Deer Public Library this month.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Calgary has organized, The Holy Qur’an Exhibition, from today until Saturday June 23 at the library’s gallery.

Besides promoting a better understanding of the peaceful teachings, the exhibition provides the chance to learn about numerous scientific statements and notions in Holy Qur’an, endorsed by modern day scientific discoveries. The Calgary group invites everyone to visit the exhibition to understand fundamental Islamic teachings of peace and tolerance, as well as dispel commonplace myths about Islam.

Some examples of community misunderstandings are that “Islam promotes terrorism and hate”, “women don’t have equal rights in Islam” and “Islam does not accommodate other religions.”

Complimentary refreshments will be served between 2 and 3 p.m. today and again on June 23 to mark the launching and closing of the exhibition. Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions. The Ahmadiyya Muslim community is said to be well known in Canada for bringing together followers of different religions and removing malice and hatred amongst faith communities. It organizes more than 100 interfaith seminars and other exhibitions annually across the country.
