National Unity Week 2021

 “O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you nations and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of God is the most righteous of you. Indeed, God is the All-Knowing and All-Aware.” - Al-Hujurat:13 

(Quran verse in Arabic)

National Unity Week 

Friday 22 - Saturday 30 October 2021

This National Unity Week, the Lebanese Muslim Association is inviting organisations to think about ways in which they can hold their own events to bring people together and learn from one another, recognise differences and celebrate diversity.  We know that this work can be difficult, but it is our shared responsibility to address the issues that cause harm and work together to build community. 

During National Unity Week, events can be as simple as a morning tea where people gather and connect over a shared love of good food, a film screening or an opportunity to meet and share stories. Alternatively, an event could take place online or have more of a social media focus – such as creating a list of movies that will help our communities understand the experiences of one another.  

We encourage event organisers to think about, in a COVD-safe way, how we can: 

  • Walk Together (family-friendly parades and festivals) 
  • Eat Together (community picnics, welcome dinners and other social events organised around food) 
  • Play Together (sporting events and recreational activities) 
  • Learn Together (forums and panel events to discuss things affecting our communities)

National Mosque Open Day  

Each National Mosque Open Day, Mosques across the country open their doors, welcoming in their broader communities in for a day of connection and learning. In order for us to build communities where all of our beliefs and backgrounds are respected, we need to come towards each other to develop mutual understanding.

This year National Mosque Open Day will be held on the 30th of October with online and in-person events.  

To find your nearest mosque and register for their open day, check out the National Mosque Open Day website

“There is no superiority of an Arab over a non-Arab, or of a non-Arab over an Arab, and no superiority of a white person over a black person or of a black person over a white person, except on the basis of personal piety and righteousness.”
