Fight Fear with Facts


Before reading their holy book, the Koran, each Muslim is required to pray this special prayer:

“May God protect all believers, Christians, Jews, and Muslims!”

Bis MiLaahi Hahmaani Rahiim


In the Muslim culture, the required greeting is:

“Peace be with you.”

Salaam Alaykum

Let’s respond in kind with the traditional answer!

“Peace also be with you.”

Alaykum Salaam
