What did our guests say after previous events? [quotes style="classic" align="center" author="Ms L McKay, Headteacher"]“The Leeds Grand Mosque team are a group of ordinary members of the mosque, some teachers themselves, who want to develop understanding of what they really believe rather than the false images sometimes found in the media. The team members were very welcoming during our visit, putting us immediately at ease on arrival. It was a positive, friendly atmosphere with no feelings of intimidation or awkwardness which sometime happen when visiting an unfamiliar place of worship. The information sessions were engaging, giving details to support my understanding of Islam in a  clear and straightforward way. There was also a chance to chat to other visitors about their schools and approach to RE. All of the volunteers were friendly and eager to answer questions, giving us plenty of literature to take away. It was great to see Muslims from so many parts of the world coming together in one community and being so positive about their faith.”[/quotes] . [quotes style="classic" align="center" author="Kristi Boone, Leeds University Student"]“Exceeded them (expectations)… it was presented in a palatable, clear way. The presentation was great…I am American so I like the areas which clarify misconceptions. I would love to see this type of event happening at home….”[/quotes] . Why learn about Islam? We are concerned with the increasing number of hate crimes against Muslims and Islam in the UK since the tragic death of Lee Rigby (for more information go to http://www.iengage.org.uk/hate-crimes or https://www.facebook.com/events/1545111722447439/ ) and we believe that educating people - Muslims as well as Non-Muslims - about the true values of Islam is the way forward. For most non-Muslims, the only Islamic education they receive is at schools and media. For this reason, our aim is to attract as many teachers to the event as possible so that they are equipped with the true knowledge and values of Islam. It is also an opportunity to ask any questions or raise any concerns that you may have. Kindly forward this to your colleagues, friends and family Team Leeds Grand Mosque
