Diversity

Siddiqa Juma

The purpose of all my work is to unite. It is a call to unite people from all different backgrounds and all different religions. It is a call to people from within my own religion and even between different religions, to set aside difference and to concentrate on what brings us together. My desire for this series, is for people to see and to understand that even within Islam, we have a beautiful rainbow of colours and ethnicities that make up the so-called Ummah - the followers and believers of Islam. I want us to move towards an acceptance of physical, cultural, social and religious differences in to create UNITY on an understanding and appreciation that will enrich all of our lives.
