Tomorrow we celebrate Hijri, the Islamic New Year. Before the advent of the Prophet Muhammad, the start of the New Year marked a month of non-violence in the Arab world, where tribesmen would lay down their weapons.
It is rather fitting that the occasion coincides with the International Day of Peace. Since 1981, the UN has invited all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities during the 21st of September, and commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.
May we continue to come together to promote respect, safety and dignity.
