houston matters microphoneThe Houston Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Cypress felt so strongly about how the Prophet Muhammad has been represented in the media — and in general conversations lately — that they wanted to dispel some of the misconceptions around their faith and the use of the term “Allahu Akbar,” meaning "God is great."

That's why this weekend (Oct. 15, 2016) they're holding a symposium for people who don't know much about the Muslim religion.

Houston Matters producer Edel Howlin sat down with Noma Bajwa, a volunteer with the community, to talk about why they're holding this event.

EVENT DETAILS:
When: Oct. 15, 2016 at 3 p.m.
Where: 11206 Memorial Drive, Houston, TX 77024
Note: This is a ladies-only event.
