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.”
A group of Muslims in London, UK had their own rose event on the 23rd of September 2012. Here, one of the sisters that organized the event, Sara Talib tells us about their experience and story:
“When we saw the news about the chaos around the world surrounding our Prophet (pbuh) we felt sadness and were upset, as our Prophet was being abused both by non-Muslims and Muslims alike. I kept on thinking about the story of how the Prophet (pbuh) used to deal with people that used to curse him, throw stones at him and create bad rumors about him. He was kind, had a gentle smile, his words were filled with patience and love and he would help even those who would talk badly about him. Therefore, what nicer way can we express his message than by giving out flowers? When he was like a flower himself! We bought 1000 roses and attached sayings by and about the Prophet (pbuh) to them. It was pouring rain on that Sunday, but we still were determined to carry on with our event. About 20 volunteers attended and even though it was cold and it was raining all the time, their smiles and good spirit made this day bright. Il hamdilla we managed to hand out all the roses, people were surprised that they were for free. When we mentioned what it was for, the response was positive and supportive. Both muslims and non-muslims felt this was a needed event for all the negative events happening lately. This was all possible thanks to the people that volunteered and donated towards this event. Inshallah we will be doing another event on the 27th of October. May Allah give us the strength and ability to always be good ambassadors for Islam and our beloved Prophet (pbuh).”
Who was the Prophet (pbuh) and what was his message? Let’s spread the peaceful message of the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) and let the world know why we love and respect our Prophet so much. Dear sisters and brothers,
These last couple of days our Prophet (pbuh) has been attacked by non Muslims and Muslims alike. We would like to spread the truth about our beloved Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) through the methods taught by our Prophet.
Therefore young Muslims all over the world have taken the initiative to do something positive and spread the true message of the Prophet (pbuh) through given out roses with small sayings by and about our beloved Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) attached to them.
