A group of Muslims in Vancouver, Canada had their own rose event from the 2nd of October to the 10th of October. Here, one of the sisters that organized the event tells us about their experience and story:
“Peace and blessings from Canada!
From October 2nd to October 6th, rose distribution events took place in various areas in the Canadian city, Vancouver, and its surrounding cities, Burnaby, Surrey, and Richmond. Roses demonstrating the Prophet’s message of peace and love were distributed at train stations, universities, shopping centres, libraries, and street corners. In the span of a week, over 30 donors and 80 volunteers contributed to the campaign. Over 1000 roses have been distributed, and over 1000 people have received a message of peace on behalf of our great Prophet.
Charity and kindness can be as simple as making a person smile. It gave us great pleasure to see the faces of fellow Canadians light up into a big smile when receiving a rose along with love and well-wishes. This is what the Prophet of Islam taught us. We’re proud of his message of love, and hope Muslims around the world will continue to practice and spread the message.”
