Iqra was started to shed some light on the Islamic Faith (and Muslims a highly diverse group of 1.5 + billion followers) There have been many misconceptions about this faith in a post 9/11 world. The media often paints a dark picture due to the misconceptions , Islamaphobia and fear created by various elements of the media, lobby groups and political figures.
Our newspaper contains an eclectic appeal while maintaining our integrity. We took time to incorporate an Islamic Artistic feel to the paper, maintaining a professional and welcoming look. We hope that those interested in learning more about this religion will leave with more knowledge and understanding-with no strings attached.
