SHAFAQNA -Â Presenting the true message of Islam, three billboards campaign are now up in San Diego, to correct misconception surrounding the faith and offer reliable answers to those seeking more information about Islam.Â
Islamic Circle of North Americaâ€™s (ICNA) national billboard campaign recently added San Diego, stating the city was an important part of the campaign inviting people to explore the Muslim faith, according to ICNA Vice President Imam Khalid Griggs.Â
The campaign will have around 100 billboards posted nationwide. Creators of the message said it could spark backlash amid a spike in anti-Islamic sentiment.Â
The billboards are meant to dispel the growing misinformation about Islam and its Prophet, Griggs said. Billboards invite passers-by to call the toll-free number 1-877-Why-Islam or online.Â
â€œPeople are curious to know about the Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him),â€ said Naeem Baig, the President of ICNA. â€œThey have many questions, and we are experiencing a surge in calls to our hotline and website visits since the billboards went up.â€Â
It is noteworthy that ICNA is one of the largest, non-profit, grassroots Muslim organizations in North America with many projects, programs, and activities designed to help in reforming society at large.
