“When you call yourself an Indian, or a Muslim, or a Christian, or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Why? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence.”

A short documentary on what studying Prophet Muhammad has taught me about Islam. I filmed this footage during Mawlid E Nabi in 2013 at Anwar al Madina, a Sufi mosque in Dublin, Ireland. A special thanks goes out to the Irish Sufi Foundation and to my friend Mia Manan Hameed.

Please make sure to switch the viewing quality to 1080HD on the bottom right side of the video’s YouTube window.

Pictures of this event can also be found in the Madina Mawlid 2013 gallery.
