Here is a video about World Interfaith Harmony Week in 2018 from HRH Prince Ghazi.
“Our choices are cursing in the dark or lighting a candle in the darkness, and through the first week of February, having everyone that is soul minded celebrate based on one theme at one time in the world, is World Interfaith Harmony Week. This is a crucial way to push back the forces of religious hatred and conflict.” -HRH Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad
The World Interfaith Harmony Week was first proposed at the UN General Assembly on September 23, 2010 by H.M. King Abdullah II of Jordan. Just under a month later, on October 20, 2010, it was unanimously adopted by the UN and henceforth the first week of February will be observed as a World Interfaith Harmony Week.
The World Interfaith Harmony Week provides a platform—one week in a year—when all interfaith groups and other groups of goodwill can show the world what a powerful movement they are. The thousands of events organized by these groups often go unnoticed not only by the general public but also by other groups themselves. This week will allow for these groups to become aware of each other and strengthen the movement by building ties and avoiding duplicating each other’s efforts.
