2 people from different faiths, races, culture and other uniqueness coming together to celebrate harmony.

There is hope for America to see kids from every race, ethnicity and cultures dancing and celebrating together.

Marriage is indeed an expression of a commitment to a relationship between two individuals. The men and women who take the bold step to become one regardless of their origins, faiths, races, cultures, and ethnicities must be appreciated and applauded. They are setting a new standard on how-to live-in harmony despite their differences. They are practicing genuine pluralism, respecting the otherness of the other, and accepting the given uniqueness.

Marriage is a union of two individuals for happiness and harmonious living. Every living organism has a built-in GPS that brings two individuals together, and from a religious perspective, it is Allah who puts love between two individuals.

“And among His signs is that He created mates for you from among yourselves so that you may find tranquility in them; and He placed between you love and compassion. These are signs for people who reflect.” (The Qur’an 30:21)

وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجًا لِّتَسْكُنُوا إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

Has anyone ever asked what it is that God wants? (aka causer of the universe) – All that the creator wants is harmony in the world that he has created (Quran 55-7-11). This couple brings harmony to the world through their marriage. May God bless them.
