DETROIT — Local Muslims say they will begin a public outreach campaign about Islam and the prophet Muhammad, especially to nonbelievers, in the coming weeks and months.

Islamic leaders announced an initiative, the Education of Muhammad Campaign, Tuesday to teach people about Islam and the prophet — whom Muslims believe is the last messenger of God, or Allah. The project, organized by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, begins with free Internet distribution of a documentary about Muhammad and a book about Islam.

Then, beginning later this week, area mosques will throw open their doors to offer information and instructions about Islam.
