World Day of Muslim Culture, Peace, Dialogue and Film

World Day of Muslim Culture Peace Dialogue and Film is an international holiday dedicated to spreading and supporting Muslim culture. It is celebrated annually on March 11. Thanks to this holiday, people of other faiths and worldviews can experience the Islamic world not through religion, but through cultural achievements.


The birth of Islam took place around the early 600s A.D. in Mecca. Religion was brought to the masses by the prophet Muhammad, who according to legend communicated with Allah himself and now he must implement his instructions. Today the Islamic religion is one of the world’s religions, on a par with Christianity and Buddhism. Muslim culture is widespread throughout the world. The main book (like the Bible for Christians) for Muslims is the Koran, whose precepts they strictly follow.

The World Day of MCPDF was established in 2010. At the time, the initiative to create the holiday came from the writer Javed Mohammed, who lived in San Francisco. Through this day, he wanted to introduce the public closer to Muslim culture, to show its richness and unique achievements, and not to perceive Muslims solely through the prism of religion.

Interesting facts
