Efforts to make Islam more popular as a religion in Seychelles have gathered speed.

A week of activities was set on its way on Monday and continued on Tuesday with the opening of an exhibition at the National Library, held to shed more light on the religion and what it hopes to achieve.

The exhibits, mainly posters, have been designed to answer a series of questions about Islam. These include pieces about Allah, as well as others on the Qur’an, the religion’s book of worship.

Issues such as how Islam guarantees human rights and elevates the status of women are also tackled, and the exhibition is open until tomorrow.
