It’s not the first time that the Great Mosque of Belfort has invited non-Muslims, but it’s undeniable that the following the Charlie Hebdo attacks the exposition “the beauty of the Islam or how to explain Islam” takes a somewhat unusual twist.
Among the questions frequently asked by visitors, the place of the woman in Islam, especially “why women are mistreated.”
“We tell them they are not and explain the prophetic origin. We noticed that non-Muslims have an erroneous interpretation of Islam and the place of women. They also ask us how we practice our religion, especially after the January attacks in Paris against Charlie Hebdo and ask what is happening in the Middle East,” responded Habdel Hamid Hadjil, cultural coordinator at the mosque.
The next public visits will be held May 23-25.
