Unity in Diversity
Azeemia Foundation aims to promote universal love, peace, harmony, and compassionate interrelations between all human beings, regardless of one’s colour, race, or faith. Unity is essential for a society to prosper and live in peace. In the presence of unity and peace, the various beautiful colours of our diversity are able to bloom.
Adam Day is an annual celebration on 10th August that promotes peace and unity in society. Our purpose is to remind mankind that each human being is a child of Adam and Eve and part of the family of humanity, irrespective of whether they are followers of the Hindu, Muslim, Jewish, Christian or any other faith, or no faith. Adam Day aims to unite all people from all backgrounds, faiths and cultures to celebrate diversity.
Adam Day provides a platform for people from different faiths to come together and recognise the common values and beliefs that they all share. The key message that is common among most faiths is the belief in the one God, and to live in harmony with everyone.
Some of the faiths and groups that we have been celebrating Adam Day with are:
BAHAI – BUDDHIST – CHRISTIAN – HINDU – BRAHMA KUMAR – QUAKER – JEWISH – MUSLIM – PAGAN
This event was started by the Patron in Chief of the Azeemia Sufi Order, Khawaja Shamsuddin Azeemi, in Manchester, UK in 2003, and has since spread to other cities and countries. It is now also celebrated in London, Canada, USA and Russia. Mr Khawaja Shamsuddin Azeemi’s message is that all of mankind are the children of one father and one mother, and therefore we should treat one another as brothers and sisters, and should follow the guidance from the Holy Scriptures for the attainment of peace on Earth as well as inner peace.
Here is what some of our guests have said about Adam Day:
