Peace Be Upon You
Wa ‘alayk (and also upon you);
A photo essay to understand the Islamic faith through the Muslim community in Singapore.
Islamophobia is a term — often carelessly used in the media — introduced as a result of acts of terrorism by extremists, carried out unfairly in the name of religion, and bear only the opposite of what the Islamic faith promotes.
"The first cases to be adjudicated between people on the Day of Judgment will be those of bloodshed."
— Narrated in Saheeh Muslim #1678 and Saheeh Al-Bukhari #6533
This is a religion promoting love and compassion. It was through that which gave me the opportunities to photograph prayers in Mosques, due to the welcoming openness of my Muslim friends to invite others to learn more about the Islamic faith.
An ongoing personal learning journey.
