A Muslim-American group has been putting up billboards in Seattle as part of a national campaign to educate Americans about the Prophet Muhammad, the most well-known prophet of the Islamic religion.
The Islamic Circle of North America has paid for four billboards around the Seattle area, with such messages as “Muhammad – peace be upon him – believed in peace, social justice, women’s rights.”
Billboards also include a phone number and a website for passers-by who want more information.
“This is an attempt from our part as American Muslims that, here we are as your colleagues, your neighbors, ask us about our faith,” said Naeem Baig, president of the Islamic Circle group.
Baig said his group had received more than 1,000 phone calls since the campaign began early this year. Source
