Big news from the Emirates! 53 convert to Islam during Dubai Shopping Festival

DUBAI: A total of 53 people converted to Islam during this year’s Dubai Shopping Festival, the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department has revealed.

During the shopping festival in January, the organisation held an interfaith dialogue programme at Al Reef Mall.

The programme aimed to teach people about Islamic culture through discussions, lectures and publications in different languages.

Huda Al Kaabi, chairwoman of the department’s New Muslims Section, said: “As part of our 2015 strategic plan, the section tries to make good use of the commerce and tourism events in Dubai in highlighting the basic principles and values of Islam, answering inquiries about it, and trying to correct the misconceptions of Islam.”


A shopping festival sounds like a very spiritual experience to me. It positively radiates from their poster.

    Were they handing out free Starbucks gift cards with every conversion?
    They were either doing something like that, or they are just lying.
    ‘Probably just lying.

      No idea. It sounds very bizarre.

      How do you know for sure that a Muslim is lying?

      They are telling you about the positives of Islam.

        Same as how do you know when Justin Trudeau is lying.

    ‘and trying to correct the misconceptions of Islam.”’

    This in a country, Dubai, that regularly arrests rape victims.

    The Muslims running that interfaith bullshit at the mall are worse than liars.

      Dubai is a slave nation. I don’t really give any credence to anything that comes out of that shit stain of a nation. Once the oil runs out they can head back to the irrelevance they deserve.

    If they like the shopping in Dubai then they will love the shopping in Mecca. The Islamic world’s answer to Disney Land where there is plenty of shopping, carnival games i.e. stoning of the devil, miracle round (the circling of the Kaaba). Let’s not forget the fashion where it’s all white ropes all the time during the Hajj and remember no wearing of any underwear! http://www.makkamall.com/

      Is Dubai the Mecca of shopping?

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      By the way there is a place called Mecca Fitness on Fairmont Drive in Saskatoon.
      I’m surprised they haven’t been pressured to change their name.

        I like when I’m watching a basketball game taking place in New York City and the commentators keep going on about how NYC is the ‘Mecca of Basketball’.

      LOL! Dubai is a weird place.

    • Clausewitz

      Doesn’t that start out with, “Attention K mart shoppers”.

  • Alain

    Since they are that stupid, they deserve Islam.

  • Martin B

    Did they tell the brand new Muzz that anyone who leaves Islam must be killed before or after they converted?

    • Frau Katze

      After, I’m guessing.
