A Short Summary of World Interfaith Harmony Week

It was during a Plenary Session in 2010 at the 65th General Assembly of the United Nations held in New York that H.M. King Abdullah II proposed World Interfaith Harmony Week to help address, he said “forces of division that spread misunderstanding and mistrust especially among people of different religions”.

King Abdullah remarked, “What we are proposing is a special week, during which the world’s people, in their own place of worship, could express the teachings of their own faith about tolerance, respect for the other and peace”.

Thus, World Interfaith Harmony week challenges us to respect each other without regard to race, religion or ethnicity, and reminds us that it is not our differences that bring us together but our similarities. King Abdullah further commented, “The fact is, humanity everywhere is bound together, not only by mutual interests, but by shared commandments to love God and neighbour; to love the good and neighbour”.
