BRUSSELS – A Belgian young Muslim revert to Islam has helped 1000 people to accepts Islam after turning her home into Islamic center for Belgian Muslims seeking to learn more about their religion.

Influenced by her Muslim friends and researching into the religion, Veronique Cools has accepted Islam at a very young age.

Later on, she decided to turn her own home into an Islamic center for Belgian Muslims seeking to learn more about their religion.

The new center works to help Belgians to overcome many prejudices when looking into Islam.

“Prejudices stem from not being introduced to real Islam properly,” she said as she was preparing iftar food packets for visiting Muslims to break their Ramadan fasts, World Bulletin reported.

“As Muslims we need to explain ourselves to society a lot better.”

After eight years of outreach, the center now has more than 1,000 members, most of them Belgian women.

It is also open for all of Belgium Muslims who are interested in learning more about their religion.

Belgian Muslims are estimated at 450,000 – out of a 10-million-population – about half of them are from Moroccan origin, while 120,000 are from Turkish origin.

More than 20 percent of the population of Brussels is of Muslim origin coming from Morocco, Turkey, Pakistan, Bangladesh and other African countries.

There are 77 mosques or prayer rooms in Brussels and over 300 across Belgium.

If you see goodness from me, then that goodness is from The Creator. You should be thankful to The Creator for all of that. Cause I'm not the architect of that. I'm only the...the recipient. If you see weakness or shortcoming in me it's from my own weakness or shortcoming. And I ask The Creator and the people to forgive me for that. _______________________________ Website eigenaar voor een betere wereld en doel, niet gericht op verdiensten van geld maar goede daden.
