  1. With nearly 1 billion followers worldwide Islam is the second largest religion. Yet despite this, there appears to be very little information or understanding about the religion amongst non-believers or amongst those of the older generation who didn’t learn and discover about other religions through the traditional education system.

    Quite often the religion, particularly in the UK where perhaps less than 3% of the population are Muslims, is only really perceived through the media portrayal of it via the TV news or fiction.

    Whilst most people of other faiths, or of no faith, know that followers of Islam are called Muslims, that the Arabic word for God is Allah and the holy book of the faith is called the Qur’an, it’s probably true to say that understanding of the faith ends there.

    It is to their credit and the Men’s Christian Fellowship ought to be praised for holding this meeting for its members. It should really help towards creating greater understanding.
