Washington Metro Displays "The Truth About Islam"

WASHINGTON, DC -- "The Truth About Islam" will be on display in Metro rail stations in Washington, DC, during the month of August.

Described by viewers as the "best, short introduction to Islam," The Wisdom Fund's message is displayed in 62 by 44 inch, back-lighted "dioramas" on Metro rail station platforms. "The display," says Enver Masud, founder of The Wisdom Fund, "is intended to foster harmony among people of diverse faiths. Designed for the age of the 30 second sound-bite, this unique display conveys the spirit of Islam in less than 600 words."
