The Church has in her saints uncompromisingly condemned Islam as false teaching brought about by a false, deceived prophet. See what the saints have written about Islam. And if you would like more information, I recommend The Life and Religion of Mohammed the Prophet of Arabia by Rev. J. L. Menezes. A PDF summary of the book is also available for sale.
We pray for the conversion of all of these men and women that they will see and understand that the Blessed Trinity is the one, true and only God and that Jesus Christ, the 2nd Person of the Blessed Trinity, is the last and greatest of all of the prophets. Christ is the chief priest, prophet, and king of all times, peoples, and nations.
Interreligious Gatherings Are Explicitly Prohibited
One manifestation of error in our world today is the pernicious error that interreligious gatherings are acceptable. Further compounding this grave error are the errors of Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, and now Pope Francis who attended such gatherings. Rather than striving to convert souls and win them over for Christ in the only True Church, outside of which no one is saved, they have caused scandal at the very rock of the Church’s foundation. St. Pius X in Notre Charge Apostolique (1910 AD) unequivocally condemned such interdenominational gatherings.
The Church’s position condemning such gatherings is manifestly clear. The Council of Laodicea in 365 AD stated, “No one shall pray in common with heretics and schismatics.” St. Cyril of Alexandria echoed these same sentiments when he said, “It is therefore unlawful, and a profanation, and an act the punishment of which is death, to love to associate with unholy heretics, and to unite yourself to their communion.” Likewise, the Council of Carthage in the fifth century decreed, “One must neither pray nor sing psalms with heretics, and whoever shall communicate with those who are cut off from the communion of the Church, whether clergy or layman: let him be excommunicated.”

From May 16th to May 24th I am joining other Catholics who are calling for 9 days of prayers for the conversion of Muslims to the Catholic Faith. This year the main Muslim holiday of Eid falls at the end of this time. Can you join us in praying daily the Chapel of the Holy Wounds for this intention?
Let us Pray:
O Jesus, true God and true Man, Redeemer of the whole world, we beseech Thee through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to turn Thine eyes of mercy on those peoples who for so many centuries have been enslaved beneath the cruel yoke of Islam. Grant that they may no more scorn Thy most holy Name nor insolently persecute and enslave the Christian nations. With one ray of Thy light disperse the darkness in which they dwell, that renouncing the evil teachings of Mohammed, they may be brought to the baptism of regeneration, that in the confession of the One True Faith they may adore and glorify Thee, the eternal Word, made man for our salvation, together with the Father and the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Let us Pray. Prayer to Mary, Help of Christians
Virgin most powerful, loving helper of the Christian people, how great thanks do we not owe thee for the assistance thou didst give our fathers, who, when they were threatened by the Turkish infidels, invoked thy maternal help by the devout recitation of Thy Rosary! From Heaven thou didst see their deadly peril; thou didst hear their voices imploring Thy compassion; and their humble prayers, enjoined by the great Pope, Saint Pius V, were acceptable unto thee, and thou camest quickly to deliver them.
