Center for Peace
The Center for Peace is the dedicated Outreach initiative of the Islamic Society of Central Florida (ISCF) that educates and informs about the true message of Islam and issues that face Muslims.
The Center for Peace was initially founded to respond to the need for accurate information about Islam and Muslims after the tragedies of September 11, 2001, but also works to promote understanding and acceptance amongst people of various faiths and backgrounds.
The Center for Peace is dedicated towards this outreach initiative predominantly in the Central Florida region. However, if possible, the dedicated staff and volunteers are happy to make themselves available to anyone, anywhere, and have traveled to fulfill presentation and dialogue requests beyond the borders to Georgia and Miami.
The mission of the Center for Peace is not to prosthelize and convert, but to live by our initial revelation of Education, and follow the examplary life of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad that was full of compassion, respect, and love for others. He was sent as a "Mercy to Mankind." This is our way of promoting unity and peace. We are dedicated to fulfilling our responsiblity and inviting people to learn about Islam and Muslim through community outreach and inter-faith pursuits, while learning about our neighbors and friends.
"O Humankind! We created your from a single soul, male and female, and made you into peoples and tribes, so that you may come to know one another. Truly, the most honored of you in God's sight is the greatest of you in piety. God is All-Knowing, All-Aware" (Qur'an 49:13)
