Welcoming and Entering, Workshop 13: Islam 1—Peace by Surrender

In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Images of Muslim art from the Arab world

Preparation for Activity

  • Visit Stock Photos or Google Images and print a few Arabic or Muslim mosaic designs and examples of calligraphy. You might also visit a public library to find books on Arabic calligraphy and mosaics.
  • Note: Do not print calligraphic images of the word "Allah." To casually discard the printed name of God is offensive in Islam; to be respectful you must burn the printed item.

Description of Activity

Youth view the Arabic art forms of calligraphy and mosaics.

Invite participants to view the books or print outs you have obtained.
