Rosanna Sirignano: Muslim Behaviour Reflected on West's View of Islam
The World Muslim Communities Council organised, on Thursday, 10, August 2023, a virtual lecture entitled 'Spreading Knowledge Beyond Borders - The Silent Advocacy', Dr Rosanna Sirignano Teaching Assistant & Honorary Fellow - University of Naples, Italy, spoke about the need to spread knowledge outside borders and the concept of silent advocacy.
Dr Rosanna Sirignano said that the Internet has helped her in spreading the correct teachings of the Islamic religion, this is due to the failure of the media in Europe to properly clarify the perspective of Islam.
Rosanna added that studying the Arabic language has opened the door for many people to enter Islam, and she is one of these people, stressing that Islamic culture is strongly linked to the Arabic language, therefore, there must be help to learn Arabic.
The founder of the first Italian online digital project on Arab and Islamic studies for personal development clarified that the Islamic religion is a global religion that is open to all different cultures and that it creates a condition of diversity and cultural difference among Muslims.
Rosanna Sirignano underscored that silent advocacy is good behaviour and dealing with those around them based on Islamic values, especially within non-Islamic societies, noting that the behaviour shown by a Muslim person is reflected in the Western world's vision of the Islamic religion, and spreading Islamic culture among non-Muslims helps to correct Misconceptions about Islam in Europe.
