We recently attended a large fireside, which is a Bahá’í meeting particularly focused on answering the questions of people who are interested in learning more about the Faith. Our friend Suha spoke on the basics of Islam. He related it to the teachings of the Bahá’í Faith and brought out the beauty in Islam that many miss these days. About 40 people were there, and we enjoyed spending time with friends and making new ones, including some who were Muslim.
