They say people have a lot of questions about their faith and they wanted to make it easy for them to get the answers. "The major things that I think Americans want to know more about,” said Naseer Syed. “’Why do you cover your head?’ for example. How do men treat their wives in Islam.”

"We're here to just show everybody that we're just average Americans just like everyone else," said Amanda Shipley, "We have nothing to hide and nothing to fear.”

This "Meet a Muslim" scene was duplicated at 120 locations in 50 cities across the country.
