'The Truth About Islam'
Created in 1995, "The Truth About Islam" was displayed in the Washington Metro (Aug '98), and has been published in Islamic Horizons (Jan/Feb '99), The Brown Journal of World Affairs (Fall '96), Washington Report On Middle East Affairs (Apr '96), Foreign Affairs (Jul/Aug and Nov/Dec '95), American Muslim Council's The AMC Report (May '95), The Washington Times (Feb '95), Eastern Times (Aug '95), etc.
"The Truth About Islam" rack cards are available for dawah and/or lobbying purposes.
Our name, and motto (Timeless Wisdom for Lasting Community), were inspired by Huston Smith author of The Illustrated World's Religions — A Guide To Our Wisdom Traditions. To paraphrase Prof. Smith: "If you take the best of the enduring world religions, you have the distilled wisdom of the human race." We make no special claim to wisdom. We do seek, try to use, and share "the distilled wisdom of the human race" — a gift to all of us.
Our logo is from an early 16th century, carved stone panel from Khan al-Saboun, Aleppo, Syria. The Square Kufi script reads: "There is no god but God, Muhammad is the Messenger of God." It was designed by the firm Sakkal Design.

Your donations, sponsorship of our advertising, and the purchase of posters of "The Truth About Islam" are our sole source of funds. About 95% of The Wisdom Fund's gross income is used to disseminate The Truth About Islam. All work is done free by volunteers.
