CHAMPAIGN,IL–Members of the Muslim American Society adopted a unique method to spread awareness about Islam at the University of Illinois. They handed out colorful flowers embellished with the sayings of Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
“God loves and befriends a servant who is pious, abstinent and unostentatious,” read one of the messages.
The University’s chapter of the Muslim American Society organized the two-day event, titled “Muhammad: The Orphan who Adopted the World.”
One goal of handing out flowers last week according to the student newspaper was to make the organization and its members more proactive.
Members said rather than defending their religion and being apologists, they connected with people to educate those who are ignorant of the Islamic faith.
