SOMERSET, N.J., Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The 'WHY-ISLAM?' project addresses a growing need for accurate information on Islam and Muslims.  The project is designed to provide individuals convenient access to such information through a toll free hotline, website and free literature.

The Hispanic WHY-ISLAM project was launched to address curiosity from the growing Hispanic community through the use of Spanish medium.  During the summer of 2013, WHY-ISLAM volunteers and community leaders completed a one month tour of Mexico, conducting lectures and distributing Spanish literature and Qurans.  The tour visited 5 regions of Mexico and was led by Nahela Morales, WHY-ISLAM Hispanic Outreach coordinator, based in Somerset NJ.  It emphasizes an effort to build bridges between the Hispanic and broader American communities and providing all individuals access to clear information on Islam, regardless of language barriers or socio-economic status.  Nouman Ali Khan, a community leader participating in the tour, said, "…we should be ready to welcome them and have resources available to them to further their understanding." 

Callers can access the bi-lingual (English and Spanish) toll free number, 877-WHY-ISLAM (949-47526), for any information or questions about Islam. They can also request a free copy of The Quran with translations in English or Spanish. The 877-WHY-ISLAM call center takes phone calls 24/7 to help the callers with accurate information about Islam.
