Aamar has a brilliant idea to invite the town folk to the mosque for an open house. He believes that the muslim community is misunderstood and an open house gives them the opportunity to find out about what Islam really is.
When we have an open house in our community, we are asked to invite our friends to share it with us, but other than the delicious food there doesn’t seem to be a good reason for them to attend. It is difficult to convince people to attend events that are religious in nature. I guess we have to get better at spinning it for people to see the benefit of attending.
How do you motivate people to attend an open house? What other methods can be used to explain what really goes on in Mosques and in muslim gatherings?
