World Day of Muslim Culture, Peace, Dialogue and Film

World Day of Muslim Culture, Peace, Dialogue and Film is an annual observance held on March 11. It was created in 2010 by Javed Mohammed, a writer and producer from California.

The early forms of Islamic culture were predominantly Arab. However, due the spread of Islam across the world Muslim culture has influenced and assimilated much from local cultures. For example, Islamic literature includes Arabic, Persian, Bengal, and Urdu literature. Theater, art, architecture, and music also are important forms of culture for Muslims. And Arabic calligraphy is considered a form of art: Muslim artists use it to express the beauty of Qur'an.

Muslim Culture Day is celebrated throughout the world. The events held on the occasion include, but are not limited to, exhibitions, art festivals, film screenings, discussions, educational events. They are organized in community centers, libraries, schools, and places of worship.

This special observance focuses on sharing and discussing Muslim culture and using various art forms for creating bridges and dialogue of understanding. Its aim is to contribute to a better understanding of the diversity inherent to Muslim culture and initiate dialogue with people of other faiths.
