1,000 convert to Islam in Kuwait during Ramadan

8/28/2011

Up to 1,000 male and female expatriates have converted to Islam since start of the holy month of Ramadan, said the Director General of the Islamic Presentation Committee on Sunday.

Jamal Al-Shatti, in a statement to KUNA, said the conversion of this large number of people to Islam “was a dream that has come true.

“We have exerted tremendous efforts to make this dream turn into reality, and this has been accomplished as a result of the support of the natives of Kuwait.” The committee offers a variety of religious educational services for new advocates of Islam; such as religious and Arabic language curricula.

The Kuwaiti authority seeks to promote Islam through dialogue, persuasion and logic.
The committee has succeeded in persuading up to 53,000 non-Muslims to convert to the religion since its launch in 1978.

Al-Shatti urged all nationals to support the committee.
