Young (Ahmadi) Muslim Girls Use Art to Promote the Message of Peace

suwanee.patch.com: More than a dozen young Muslim girls from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (GA Chapter) came together in Norcross to paint doors for the city of Norcross sponsored project “Doors of Homes and Hope” on September 21, 2013.

Ruthy Lachman Paul, a Norcross resident and the community’s newest friend approached the local Ahmadi Muslims for this project.  She proposed the idea of “International Peace” and brought some of her other friends to work on a total of eight doors. “It was a wonderful experience in which we got to illustrate symbols of peace while working side by side with other religious denominations”, said Baria Sharif, one of the young Muslim artists.

The Ahmadi Muslim girls highlighted the message of peace through the use of the community’s motto “Love for All, Hatred for None” to adorn their three doors. Everybody had a great time. Maria Ahmad who came from Cummings to take part in the activity said, “Painting with my friends for a good cause felt truly amazing”.
