Over 1,300 people convert to Islam in Dubai during H1

More than 1,300 people have converted to Islam in Dubai over the first six months of the year, according to the Dar Al Ber Society (DABS).

Khalfan Khalifa Al Mazrouei, chairman of the board council – DABS, said the new Muslims hailed from 60 different nationalities - mainly Asia, Europe and Africa.

He said in comments published by news agency WAM that the Islamic Information Centre (IIC) has assisted 1,362 fresh Muslims in their journey of conversion.

"The converts are the fruit of a variety of intensive programmes, activities, lectures, and forums organised for new and non-Muslims in collaboration with the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai," he said.

WAM reported that the Islamic Information Centre issues conversion certificates accredited by both the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities in Dubai and the Dubai Courts.
