"In the rural parts of Egypt, where Awad is from, religion and Allah are taken more seriously," said Dr. Sherif A. Elfass, mosque vice president and researcher at UNR.

Awad preached and studied the Quran when he went to study geology in college in 1980, and continued through his years of mandatory military service in Egypt.
"Islam is important to many people in Egypt," Elfass said.

Sherif Elfass, an engineering professor at UNR, said that before Sept. 11, the local Muslim community was considered closed to others.
"But when you noticed what happened after 9/11, it was a lack of communications on both parties," Elfass said. "We realized as a community we didn't do much about it.
"We started to have an open-door policy and invited anybody to come and visit us at the mosque," he said. "And anyone who wanted to read the Quran, we gave them a Quran."
He said the education outreach is very crucial.
Elfass said his immediate neighbors "were awesome."
"They immediately recognized that Islam is not like that because we had been talking to them, and they came and showed us their support," he said.
An equally important mission, Elfass said, is to educate Muslim youths in Islamic principles.
Elfass said that if young Muslims encounter someone who tells them to do something that is wrong, better understanding of their faith hopefully will help them make the right decisions.
"We do not want to see Islam hijacked again," he said.
