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.
