A MUSLIM mum-of-four is hoping to raise awareness and understanding of her religion through two unique exhibitions in Trafford.

Shabnam Yusuf is holding a ‘Discover Islam’ exhibition in Hale Library, Leigh Road, until Saturday March 19. Through the exhibition, Shabnam is aiming to raise awareness about the culture, diversity and the unique way of life of a Muslim.

Subjects explored include the concept of God in Islam, The Five Pillars, the status of Jesus, the status of women in Islam, the Muslim family and human rights.

Shabnam will also be bringing her exhibition to Sale Library, Sale Waterside, from Monday April 11 until the Saturday April 23.

“I have been working with libraries in the East Cheshire area for several years now and hold Discover Islam exhibition on an annual rota,” said Shabnam.

“I have had a very positive feedback in the East Cheshire libraries and decided to bring this awareness to the Trafford libraries.

“It is only by bringing about awareness and understanding of each other beliefs and culture that we will be able to live in peace and harmony.

“A library is an ideal place to bring about community cohesion by dispelling fear and misunderstanding of Islam and allows the public to browse at their own leisure.”
