This week Cambridge University’s Islamic society opens its doors to the general public in its much awaited Experience Islam Week. Known affectionately by its organisers as EIW, this year’s programme features the conversion story of a Roman Catholic priest on Monday, Islamic Art on Tuesday, Interfaith scripture reading on Wednesday and a controversial Question Time format on Saturday which will discuss issues around women and jihad.
The week usually culminates in a cultural festival of food and poetry which this year will be Persian themed. All events take place in the beautiful city of Cambridge .
EIW has been running for many years and seeks to invite all including Non-Muslims to a safe environment where they can learn more about the faith, ask questions and meet their Muslim neighbours.
This year’s publicity video ‘See things differently’ follows last year’s incredibly fresh and innovative style tailored for the Non-Muslim viewer.
