I think it’s a wonderful initiative, and as I just read a book on common ground between islam and buddhism, I was already a fan of His Majesty Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad. Thank you for everything you do for peace and respect amongst people of different faiths. I have no doubt that you are a decendant of the great Prophet Muhammed.

Congratulations to the Jordanian monarch for proposing the World Interfaith Harmony Week contest, and to the United Nations, for accepting this innovative idea.

This initiative has sent a ripple of excitement around the world and has inspired many organizations worldwide to bring to fruition whatever interfaith project they were working on.

And while only few will be recognized as winners, I believe every one who participates will be a winner. All of us will learn from others about unique ways to promote interfaith harmony. What a wonderful, positive, and proactive way to compete instead of through random or targeted acts of violence in the name of the Reality!

عالم بلا رموز
السلام والوئام والحب هو شعارنا
ما أجملها وأعظمها من دعوة ينبغي أن تسود العالم بأكملة ، دون النظر إلى جنس أو لون أو دين، دعوة تقوم على التسامح والتواضع والمساعدة للبشرية بأكملها على تحقيق النمو والإرتقاء والتقدم . فنحن جميعا أبناءالوجود الذي تفرع من أبا واحدا وأما واحدة وكل البشرية تعبد خالقا واحدا هو خالق الكون ، فهيا سويا نتفق على السلام ، المحبة والإخلاص.
قال رسول الله صلى الله علية وسلم ” أفشوا السلام بينكم” ، لم يحدد لمقولته جنس بعينه بل دعا إليها البشرية كلها.
وفي الإنجيل ”إن أمكنكم سالموا جميع الناس”
وفي التوراه ” حد عن الشر وأصنع الخير أطلب السلام وأسعي ورائها”
فهيا معا نحمل الرسالة الخالدة للبشرية جميعا لنشر السلام والوئام والحب بين أمم الأرض في عالم بلا رموز وإنما رمزا واحدة تحملة قلوبنا ونسعى إلى تحقيقة وهو الحب في الله في عالم المحبة والوئام.
ففي القرآن الكريم قال الله تعالى:
” يا أيها الناس أدخلوا في السلم كافة”
نتمنى أن تصلكم رسالتي بصدر رحب مع القبول والتطبيق.
والسلام عليكم ورحمة اللة وبركاتة.
A world without symbols/signs

Peace, harmony and love is our motto as outlined and most of the invitation should prevail in the whole world, without regard to race, color, religion, tolerance, humility and help for humanity as a whole to achieve growth and progress. We are of one father and one mother and all mankind to worship one creator is the creator of the universe, come together to agree on peace, love and faithfulness. The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) ”consider peace among you”, did not specify the gender of the sayings but called for all mankind. And in the Gospel ”that you could they make peace with all people” in the Bible ”on evil and make a good call,” peace and together we carry timeless message of humanity all for peace, harmony and love among the Nations of the Earth in the world without codes but one symbol to bear our hearts and we seek the love of God in the world of love and harmony. In the Quran God said: ’ o ye people have peace all wish to received my open-minded with acceptance and application. Peace, mercy and blessings of God be upon you..

“A unified humanity can collectively resolve problems… Divided, we only serve to create them.”

The challenge then is individually and collectively to awaken our true potential for goodness and greatness, and to realize that positive change begins with us. I sincerely believe that World Interfaith Harmony Week is a very positive vehicle to lead humankind towards that positive change.

On Behalf of youth for peace,its my great honor and privilege to support world interfaith harmony week.

Youth for Peace ‘s mission to to build a world where young people from different releligions and backgrounds can come togather to create understanding and respect by serving their communities

The Prophet (PBUH) said, ”By Allah, he is not a believer! By Allah, he is not a believer! By Allah, he is not a believer.’’ It was asked, ”Who is that, O Messenger of Allah?’’ He said, ”One whose neighbor does not feel safe from his evil”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, ”He who believes in Allah and the Last Day let him not harm his neighbour; and he who believes in Allah and the Last Day let him show hospitality to his guest; and he who believes in Allah and the Last Day let him speak good or remain silent”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Peace and interfaith dialogue is much needed today,that’s why youth for peace,each year orgnize an international walk for human rights specifically the united nations universal declaration of human rights and inspire them to became advocates for peace and tolerance.

I highly support the WIHW and I will do my best to make this week an international event by spreading this great message throughout our website and future projects.

To achieve universal peace it is so necessary to enhance mutual understanding and respect among all the people of different religions and cults.
We all must pay proper respect and honor to all the inter religious and inter cultural festivals and events in order to grow mutual understanding among different religions and cults.

Greetings,

The Uniting Church in Australia (UCA) National Assembly Working Group on Relations with Other Faiths would like to add its name to the many supporters of World Interfaith Harmony Week.

The UCA is the third largest Christian denomination in Australia; a country that is increasingly multicultural and multi-faith. We believe that this diversity is a part of God’s creation and that we are therefore called to live together in peace, loving our neighbour as God loves us and all people.

Responding to Christ’s call within Australia’s contemporary landscape, our Working Group was established to promote knowledge and understanding of other living world faiths and communities. We seek to promote respect for the integrity of the beliefs of other faiths, cultures and traditions. This desire not only arises from our common humanity but also because we seek to live in peace and goodwill as neighbours in our communities and the world.

Believing that World Interfaith Harmony Week promotes peace and goodwill within communities, we affirm the ideals and ambitions of the same.

World Interfaith Harmony Week is an opportunity for people around the world to come together in the shared understanding that dialogue between different religions, faiths, and beliefs is essential to building sustainable peace.

Protecting religious freedom has been a fundamental concern of the United States going back to the earliest days of our republic and it remains so today. As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has noted, “Religious tolerance is one of the essential elements not only of a sustainable democracy but of a peaceful society.”

As U.S. Ambassador to Portugal, I meet regularly with leaders of different faiths to help strengthen the dialogue between people who may not recite the same prayers, but who have a common commitment to, and interest in, a peaceful world where all of us can live, and worship, without fear.

People of all faiths have much to gain by working together to combat religious intolerance in all its forms. Let that be our goal during World Interfaith Harmony Week – and every week.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints extends its sincere gratitude and commendation to His Majesty King Abdullah II for his wisdom and integrity in proposing World Interfaith Harmony Week. We unite our voices with those of so many others who have declared their support of this most laudable initiative.

There has never been a greater need for religious understanding and tolerance than in today’s world. There has likewise never been a greater opportunity for people of faith to reach out together in compassion to those who suffer across the globe.

Through its humanitarian arm, Latter-day Saint Charities, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has partnered with charitable organizations of numerous religions to alleviate suffering and build capacity among the poor and needy of the world regardless of religious affiliation.

In recognition of World Interfaith Harmony Week, we confirm our continued commitment to seek out communities of faith who share our concern for humanity and to join with them in goodwill and solidarity as we work together to bring relief to the afflicted and hope to the downhearted.

URI Africa calls Religious Leaders in Africa to observer the World Interfaith Harmony Week
On behalf of its 98 members organizations in over 28 African Countries the United Religions Initiative (URI) Africa calls upon Religious leaders in Africa to celebrate the World Interfaith Harmony Week.
As it is stated by Mr. Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations, the World Interfaith Harmony Week is an opportunity to focus global attention on the efforts of religious leaders, interfaith movements and individuals around the world to promote mutual respect and understanding between followers of different faiths and beliefs.
With this in mind URI Africa appeals to all Religious Leaders in Africa to spread the message of interfaith harmony by organizing prayer, light candle and promote the teaching of the Golden Rule which says “Treat others the way you want to be treated” as it is the practical action to build Interfaith Harmony, a culture of peace and co-existence in the world
URI Africa welcomes the United Nations General Assembly resolution of 65/5 on World Interfaith Harmony Week. This is what URI members throughout Africa and the rest of the world are working hard to achieve on a daily base. The World Interfaith Harmony Week resonates well with the purpose of URI.
URI Africa is very grateful to His Majesty King Abdullah Il Bin A-Hussein of Jordan for spearheading this timely and important initiative. URI Africa pledges its maximum support in the successful implementation of UNGA 65/5 as well as other resolutions relative to interfaith harmony. The World Interfaith Harmony Week is an opportunity for collective action in pursuit of making the Golden Rule a lived reality.
Responding to the call of the General Assembly of the United Nations, in 2010 Ambassador Mussie Hailu, Regional Director of URI for Africa and Board Chairman of Interfaith Peace-building Initiative sent out a letter of invitation along with the copy of the resolution of the General Assembly to African Union and its 53 members State to celebrate the first World Interfaith Harmony week. The call was made on the occasion of the 16th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Heads of States held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
On the occasion of the celebration of the United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week, URI Africa congratulated the United Nations for its outstanding effort to make this world a better place for all and URI uphold strongly the purpose of the United Nations and its principle as enshrined in the charter of the United Nations and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The United Religions Initiative Africa mission is to create a platform in Africa where different religions followers could come together to promote interfaith harmony, the teaching of the Golden Rule, understanding, trust, co-existence, constructive dialogue among different cultures and to make religions a healing force in Africa and build bridges of lasting peace, development and respect.

Greetings of peace from The United Church of Canada,

The Theology and InterChurch InterFaith Committee of The United Church of Canada affirms the values and objectives of World Interfaith Harmony Week and wishes to record our support for this initiative.

For life to survive, grow and flourish in ”the wilderness of the world”—amid the exploding bombs, the fragile atmosphere, the burning rains, the polluted waters, the many illnesses, and the myriad expressions of violence—all people of compassion and wisdom need to work together in the common task of caring for one another and the whole of God’s creation. The United Church of Canada has articulated our understanding of the work of creating interfaith harmony in the document Mending the World. The document states that “naming the search for justice for God’s creatures and healing for God’s creation as the church’s first priority, and joining with other persons of good will in the search for justice, wholeness and love” commits us to make “common cause with all people of good will, whether they be people of faith or not, for the creation of a world that is just, participatory and sustainable.”

We live in a pluralistic society; we need one another in order to build communities of compassion and justice where all are welcomed and valued, and where we can work together for transformation. Engagement with people of different faiths helps us to reflect more deeply on our own faith. We have learned from their wisdom and experience and this has helped to shape us as a church which affirms that God is creatively and redemptively at work in the religious life of all humanity. Interfaith relationships locally and globally deepen faith, shaping how we understand participation in God’s mission and how we perceive the role of faith in Canadian society.

For these reasons we value the opportunity to join with others around the world in this week of focused attention to interfaith harmony. It is our prayer that World Interfaith Harmony Week will be received by people in The United Church of Canada, and all people of faith, as a call to engage in sustained dialogue and action out of which will grow a world of peace, justice, wholeness and respect.

Sincerely,

I express my solidarity & support to the world interfaith harmony week. In Islam instruct the true believers for nice treatment of neighbors.Neighbor refers every human being irrespective to faith,race & color

Allah says in the Holy Qur’an
”Worship Allah and join none with Him (in worship); and do good to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, Al-Masakin(the poor), the neighbour who is near of kin, the neighbour who is a stranger, the companion by your side, the wayfarer (you meet), and those (slaves) whom your right hands possess.(4:36)

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, ”Jibril kept recommending treating neighbors with kindness until I thought he would assign a share of inheritance”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) commanded me thus, ”O Abu Dharr! Whenever you prepare a broth, put plenty of water in it, and and give some of it to your neighbors”.
[Muslim].

The Prophet (PBUH) said, ”By Allah, he is not a believer! By Allah, he is not a believer! By Allah, he is not a believer.’’ It was asked, ”Who is that, O Messenger of Allah?’’ He said, ”One whose neighbor does not feel safe from his evil”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, ”He will not enter Jannah whose neighbor is not secure from his wrongful conduct”.

The Prophet Muhammed(PBUH) said, ”O Muslim women! No one of you should consider insignificant (a gift) to give to her neighbor even if it is (a gift of) the trotters of a sheep”.[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, ”No one should prohibit his neighbor from placing a peg in his wall”. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) added: Now I see you turning away from this (Sunnah), but by Allah, I shall go on proclaiming it.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, ”He who believes in Allah and the Last Day let him not harm his neighbour; and he who believes in Allah and the Last Day let him show hospitality to his guest; and he who believes in Allah and the Last Day let him speak good or remain silent”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

The Prophet (PBUH) said, ”He who believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him be kind to his neighbor; and he who believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him show hospitality to his guest; and he who believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him either speak good or remain silent”.
[Muslim].

Ayesha(may Allah be pleased with her) reported: I said, ”O Messenger of Allah (PBUH), I have two neighbors, to which of them should I send a present?’’ He (PBUH) replied, ”To the one whose door is nearer to you”.
[Al-Bukhari]

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, ”The best of companions with Allah is the one who is best to his companions, and the best of neighbors to Allah is the one who is the best of them to his neighbor”.

Abdullah II of Jordan for his continuous efforts and action in building
peace around the world! I highly support the World Interfaith Harmony
Week, and will try my best to make this week an international phenomenon
by spreading this great message throughout YARA’s online presence and
projects.

Many of the problems around the world are related to:
- The misunderstandings of the three monotheistic religions,
- Lack of knowledge and/or implementation of religions beliefs,
- The misconceptions of religion – in which the media plays a
significant role in.
- The effect culture and tradition have on religion.

I believe that these topics are very important and should be
discussed in a more frequent
manner. I personally aim for a better world, and I will continue to

WIHW 2012 & All Partners:

It gives me great hope for the future as I watch and contribute among the numerous organizations working for harmony through interfaith understanding: WIHW being one expression of the global movement towards interfaith dialogue. I know that the coming years will continue to hold global tensions of daunting proportions, and the need for programs such as these is evident.

At no point in the world’s history have people of different faith traditions and cultures lived in such close physical proximity as is today. Unrealized Religio-cultural ignorances are, as a result, are becoming more and more obvious in the media, international politics, and everyday lives.

While this is a peculiar phenomenon, the times leave us with a peculiar opportunity. Now that humans have begun to realize how little our brothers, our sisters, and ourselves know about one another, the doors of learning about each other far wider opened. Only through dialogue can we gain appreciation for that which will inevitably lead to a world of harmonious coexistence.

In partnership, we must keep the doors of dialogue open. If we let the doors close, the wheels of progress on the road to harmony will slip back down the hill of ignorance.

Peace,
