Salam and hello everybody!
First: Eid mubarak to all my muslim sisters and brothers. I hope you had blessed and happy days with your families.
Corresponding to the
, which alhamdulillah (thanks God) is now making progress, I want to tell you about a great interresligious action here in Berlin.
On the occassion of Nine Eleven young religious people wanted to show, that we all are shocked about such terrorism, that we never accept such acts in the name of any religion.
That's why we - Bahai, Christian, Jewish and Muslim youth - together built a big tower, which consisted of many many cartons, that we had colored and inscribed before. Me for example, I wrote: "Together for a better world".
The project is called "Nein! Eleven", cause in German, "nein" means "no". The interior Minister of Berlin held a speach and there is song by Robert Lee Fardo, which was specially made for this campaign! It's called "Sweet Coco" (Coexistence) and I looove it! Here you can listen to it: [link]
Moreover every religious group made a prayer on that place, while the other religions were stanidng around them to symbolize "protection". It was so peaceful and so nice meeting other religious people and to exactly know, that they accept you and do not have any prejudices.
The radio and some magazines and newspaper published and still publish some articles about our project. I hope, inshaallah, the feeling and atmosphere of that day will soon expand.
