The evening event will include a tour of the mosque, a delicious Middle Eastern meal and a talk about the teachings of Islam.

The purpose of the event is to encourage cross-cultural awareness and interfaith understanding by bringing people together who have different religious and cultural backgrounds to learn about Islam and gain fresh perspectives.

All employees and students are invited to attend the free event. Faculty members are encouraged to bring their students! Please RSVP by clicking here.

The mission of the Islamic Society of Central Florida is not to preach or convert, but to educate and inform about the true messages of Islam and issues that face Muslims.
