Center for Peace
The Center for Peace is the dedicated Outreach department 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.
The objective of the Center for Peace is to facilitate and coordinate outreach efforts in the Central Florida community by promoting understanding and acceptance among people of all faiths and all ethnicities. We are dedicated to fulfilling our responsibility and inviting people to learn about the accurate message of Islam and the Muslim community through outreach and inter-faith pursuits, while learning about our neighbors and friends.
“O Humankind! We created you from a single soul, male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, so that you may come to know one another. Truly, the most honored of you in the sight of God is the greatest of you in piety. God is All-Knowing, All-Aware” (Qur’an 49:13)
