I like the "Salaam" graphic, because it symbolizes brotherhood or sisterhood, and peace. No more hatred when we shake hands with our sister (between sister and sister) and brother (between brother and brother). - Adibah
My answer to this question is Elenany graphic 'Brotherhood'.
I like the different and wonderful colours of the praying men. For me it symbolises the fact that all true believers are alike. It even inspires me to say, Insha-Allah, each and one of us is part of the Islamic Ummah. We're human beings from many geographical areas of the world; the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe, America and Australia. However, our diverse colours, in other words diversity, in terms of culture, tradition and last but not least physique bear little significance in relation to how we are guided to behave in the holy Quran. Hence, good treatment of people, be it family members or strangers, is considered important in Islam.
Our religion highly regards relationships between Muslims, and even Non-Muslims. Some hadith (or saying) from our scriptures state: "What actions are most excellent? To gladden the heart of a human being, to feed the hungry, to help the afflicted, to lighten the sorrow of the sorrowful, and to remove the wrongs of the injured."
Brothers and likewise sisters have been ordered to not discriminate each other, but quite the opposite stand in strong faith side by side, like the men in the picture! They might be green, blue or whatever, but notice their yellow background, or in other words environment or common place in this earth, is the same. We all follow one religion, and we all must obey the creator of all creators, Allah (SWT). In addition, we're all yet again going to be judged equally in the hereafter. - Mariam A
'Salaam'. I have only recently become a Moslem and every time people say ‘Salaam’ to me it reminds me that I have so much more peace in my life. - Maresa V
