Resources on Islam
Muslims are our neighbours, our colleagues and sometimes even family members. Many of us are unsure how to talk about Islam and are reluctant to engage on religion. Don't be afraid. We've brought you some resources to help. Have a look at our "To help you understand" section, as well as our Courses section. The evangelistic tools are to train you or give you things to share with your Muslim friends. Be sure to read the "10 tips for talking to Muslims" at the bottom. We are grateful to Life-Challenge.org for sharing many of their materials at no cost.
