Religious Organizations

The Islamic Speakers Bureau aims to promote and strengthen interfaith dialogue by offering introductory lectures on Islam at various religious institutions within the Albany Capital District.

This activity not only reinforces the common beliefs of different faiths but also helps people of different religious denominations understand the beliefs and practices of their Muslim neighbors, colleagues, classmates or friends.

Islam has a clear track record of tolerant relations with other faiths. From its earliest days in seventh century Arabia, Islam co-existed with a multitude of diverse beliefs ranging from idolatry and mysticism to Christianity and Judaism.

The Islamic Speakers Bureau hopes to continue this trend of tolerance and understanding by sharing information about the basic tenets of our faith with your religious community - be it at a church, a synagogue, a community center or a temple.

Civic Organizations

The Islamic Speakers Bureau of Albany recognizes the array of civic organizations that exist throughout the Albany community. Whether these organizations are special-interest groups, social groups, or even athletic groups, ISB Albany wants to offer its resources for the educational benefit of each organization. Our trained speakers, who come from various ethnic and professional backgrounds, offer dynamic and concise presentations. Following a nation-wide established outline, the volunteer speakers introduce the community to different topics within Islam. They also tailor their presentations to the needs of each group. That is why they encourage a lot of group interaction.

The Media

The Islamic Speakers Bureau of Albany is happy to present information to media officials and representatives, including presenting information on the Muslim world, how to properly reference the Qur'an and other Muslim religious texts in news articles, and can respond to other needs and requests from media outlets.
