POSITIVE 'EXPLORE THE QURAN' FEEDBACK
To date, nearly 20,000 people have requested free Qurans through CAIR's "Explore the Quran" campaign.
The following are excerpts from e-mails received by those who already received their Qurans:
"Dear Muslim friends: My copy of the Qur'an, by Muhammad Asad, arrived in today's mail. What you sent gives significant witness to your efforts to encourage greater interfaith understanding and mutual respect; and to the standing of this Holy Book. Be assured that this Holy Book will be treated just as you have stated is expected of Muslims. . ."
" Dear Sir: I received your holy book today. I am a Catholic but mainly a Christian. I really appreciate your outreach to me and others. I will treat this book with great respect. . ."
