What Does Peace Mean To You? Mahamad Abdelaal

Muslim Link is continuing its series Muslims of Ottawa. At the Canadian Muslims for Peace, we asked Muslims who attended: What Does Peace Mean To You? Here is the response of Mahamed Abdelaal with the Kanata Muslim Association's Al Hikmah School

Peace means accepting everyone for who they are and not looking at someone as different because of their race or what they have. We are all human beings. We all have a morality that we all believe in common and that is what makes us strong. Peace is Humanity.

Muslims of Ottawa is a photographic representation of the diversity and humanity of our community. The project is two-fold: (1) We want to share and document the broad array of cultures, lifestyles, professions and other defining features of Muslims in Ottawa and (2) we want to hear from members of the community in their own words. This project originally began as a partnership between Muslim Link and abcreatives, who took 20 photos of Muslims in Ottawa. Muslim Link is now continuing the project which takes its inspiration primarily from Humans of New York, but is also influenced by loveOttawa and Somali Sideways.
