Dear Friends,

Inspired by the ever-growing momentum of World Interfaith Harmony Week, the 2015 Parliament of the World’s Religions, and our own deep desire for peace and harmony in the world, we developed a ’declaration of interfaith peace and friendship’, which we invited local, regional, national and international organizations to sign.

30 declarations have been received to date from organizations representing education, government, media, business, diverse faiths, as well as community groups involved in peace, compassion, interfaith and contemplative work.

Our letter of support to you is Interfaith Harmony Halifax’s signed Declaration of Interfaith Peace and Friendship – please see attached.

May we and all those who have made similar declarations continue to live up to their commitment, and may the circle of ’interfaith peace and friendship’ continue to expand.

With every good wish, and deep appreciation for your good heart and efforts.

May Allah peace and blessings be upon everyone of us.

Its a great initiative that you have taken to promote brotherhood across faiths. This is actually the need of hour where religion has turned to be the tool of hatred. But all those who practice different faiths, know how important and beautiful it is. And people are still ignorant to it. By doing programs like this across the world I believe every can understand what faiths across their society teaches and practice and that faith is never the reason of ’evil to the society’ but the person himself is ’satan’.

Once again thanking everyone who are acting and organizing events like this, May the Lord accept all our efforts.

Greetings to all in this special Week of World Interfaith Harmony.

On behalf of the Uniting Church in Australia and the Assembly Relations with Other Faiths Working Group, I commend this global initiative and urge people across the world to celebrate the religious and cultural diversity of their own communities.

As Christians, we are called to live in harmony with all people and contribute to a world of peace, justice and hospitality.

Initiatives like this provide a powerful opportunity to get to know one another better and realise how much we have in common.

In a world marred by division, fear and ignorance, it has never been more important to reach out across our different faith traditions.

When we come together, without agenda, without prejudice, we begin to see each other as we really are – brothers and sisters.

When we build friendships across our different faiths, we give hope to the world.

I encourage members of the Uniting Church in Australia to find ways to build interfaith harmony wherever you are.

The friendships we make will be transforming.

Grace and peace,

Rev. Michael Barnes

The Surrey Interfaith Council is working to create an environment of interfaith respect and harmony among faith traditions by promoting religious freedom and social justice in the community of Surrey, British Columbia. But we know that this goal can’t just be local; in order for this goal to reach its fullest potential in our community, we need to work with global partners who understand that interfaith harmony is essential in our increasingly connected, multicultural world.

For this reason, we are proud supporters of the United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week, a time for people of all faiths around the world to testify publicly that all major faiths have an equal right to adhere to their teachings and practices without prejudice from others; to remind ourselves that God is impartial and loving towards all people; and to recognize the need to live exemplary lives in order to transmit mature spiritual values to future generations.

World Interfaith Harmony Week encourages us to put these values into practice. We know that peace and goodwill can only happen on a global scale if it is happening in individuals and then in small communities first. As we come together during this week in various places of worship, some not our own, we become a sign to the world that security, peace, and harmony are possible.

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the members of Centre for Promotion of Intercultural Dialogue and on my own behalf, I have immense pleasure in extending warm greetings of friendship and felicitations to the organizers on the occasion of the World Interfaith Harmony Week (WIHW) 2016.

Peaceful societies can only be built on the foundation of a strong justice system and of a concrete intercultural and interreligious dialogue. The promotion of dialogue among different communities and civilizations is, at present, a priority for the international community. It is only in dialogue that communities can truly meet and understand one another.

We would like to express our full support for your work for interfaith and intercultural harmony. It is obvious that dialogue between cultures and religions has become one of the main pillars of modern cultures, and one of the ways we judge the maturity of today’s religious traditions. This is an extraordinary initiative and it should have the concrete support of all heads of state and leading international organizations focused on building a world where the cultural diversity is respected and valorised, where people from different cultural backgrounds work hand in hand for solution of global problems and for sustainable development.

We at Centre for Promotion of Intercultural Dialogue fully support World Interfaith Harmony Day.

This historic royal action undoubtedly has proved the royal entities as the benefactor of humanity as a whole generally and of Muslim Ummah particularly as it has given the sense of confidence to Muslim world who was suspicious and hesitated to share interfaith dialogue movements as the extremists have declare the interfaith dialogue as anti-Islam. Uncountable thanks to Royal Hashemite Kingdom pride of Muslim world for leading the Ummah to the path of Interfaith Dialogue by creating UN`s WIHW.

Greetings,
The focus of the World Interfaith Harmony Week comes at a critical time in our world’s history, a time when we witness many societies struggling to embrace religious diversity as a vital component of peaceful communities. The need to deepen connections between people of all faiths is greater than ever, and just as tantamount is the need to do so on a global scale. We appreciate this week as a reminder to reject sectarian divisions around the world, and especially in the Middle East. 
Interfaith harmony is an essential part of the work of the Orthodox Initiative. Working in Jordan today – a country which is hosting people of many nationalities and heritages – helps us practice our belief of assisting and interacting with all people of the world, regardless of faith.
As Jordanians, we are proud that the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was the initiator of such an important week. We hope to cherish and respect the intention of World Interfaith Harmony Week through our daily work of encouraging the vitality of faith diversity in all communities.
