SHAFAQNA – To coincide with one of the most auspicious months of the Islamic calendar and part of a number of events arranged by British Muslims, a four week nationwide bus campaign will be launched in the UK from Monday 5th December 2016.
The unprecedented campaign will feature over 128 buses throughout the UK carrying a universal message of goodwill and peace to all. Public transport buses from the south coast right up to Glasgow will carry the same message addressing all of humanity.
“O mankind spread peace and feed people” is one of the most well-known and central teachings of the Islamic faith. The organizers aim to take this message to hearts and minds across the United Kingdom during the coinciding festive periods of Mawlid and Christmas respectively.
The campaign will culminate on Saturday 17th December 2016 with what has become known as International Mawlid in the City. This is a world-wide, coordinated event that takes place every year, with the aim of inspiring Muslims of all ages and backgrounds to make a positive contribution in their own local communities.
Participants from all over the world will be handing out roses and sweets to members of the public, with the aim of promoting the Prophetic message of peace, love and hope for the whole of humanity.
Participants and volunteers aim to once again coordinate over 125 locations across the UK and the World with many live events running simultaneously. These events will run throughout the UK in major City Centre locations including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham, Sheffield, Coventry, Luton and Glasgow to name just a few. In numerous locations the events will include feeding of the homeless all coordinated through a central direction hub at the group’s head office in Birmingham.
International locations include USA, Canada, Trinidad, Guyana, Australia and many locations within Western Europe.
