Open House Mosque Tour & “Know Your Neighbor”

January 6, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Open House Mosque Tour & “Know Your Neighbor”

January 6

1:00pm

Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati (inside mosque)

Please RSVP to toursandtalks@cincinnatiislamiccenter.org by January 5 with your name and the totalĀ # of guests in your party.

Our members look to the Qur’an 49:13, which tells humankind that God has “made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other”. The need for active dialogue won’t go away anytime soon, and the Know Your Neighbor program, a nationwide coalition of faith- and community-based organizations, social justice campaigners, and civil rights activists, has committed itself to this task. The eighty-two members of the coalition, including the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati, based across all fifty United States provide tools, educational programs, interfaith training, dialogue resources, and in-person opportunities to strengthen our social fabric by relating to each other in simple ways.

We must remember core American principles of cooperation despite differences, of commitment to the greater good, and of concern for the “other”. Some point in our history, we were all the “other” to someone else. We’re calling everyone to know your neighbor. We are stronger when we unite around these core American values.

In Peace,

Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati

 

Some additional information:

All visitors to the Islamic Center are requested to observe the Islamic requirement for dress and demeanor when entering the prayer area. Specifically, women are asked to bring scarves for head covering and wear either skirts that are at least mid-calf length, or loose fitting pants and long-sleeved blouses. Likewise, men are asked to dress modestly which means that they should wear long pants, which are loose fitting and sleeved shirts. Also, when entering the prayer area it will be necessary to remove your shoes, as the prayer areas are fully carpeted.

We welcome the feedback of our visitors regarding their Guided Tour or Talk experience. Attached below is a brief feedback form that we encourage you to complete with whatever comments that would help serve our visitors and their needs that you can complete and email, toursandtalks@cincinnatiislamiccenter.org, or mail back to the Islamic Center office address noted below.
