The International Day of Peace, 21st September, was established by the United Nations in 1982. Each year people all over the World come together and organise special activities including concerts, festivals, community events and more. This year Peace Day falls on a Friday and all over the World including the UK, Muslims are organising activities with their friends and neighbours of all faiths and backgrounds and Mosques are dedicating their Friday sermons to messages of peace.

The Islamic Society of Britain supported by partners from across the UK are pleased to launch a new competition to mark this special day:
