*Assalam-un-Alaikum!(peace be upon you)*

 

Assalam-un-Alaikum or Salam is a form of greeting others with peace which expresses care and brotherhood among people.

 

CollabDeen which refers to Collaboration of Deen, aims to collaborate universal Muslim communities using advanced technology.

 

But we believe, the only factor to ease the journey of collaboration is “Peace”. Hence, we have chosen the peace icon as the trademark of our company.

 

Peace in Islam

 

It is narrated that once a man asked the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H): What is the best thing in Islam?

He said, “feeding others and giving the greeting of Salaam(peace) to those whom you know and those whom you do not know.Salaamrefers to greeting peace topeople, which sows seeds of love and friendship in their hearts.”

 

Thus the Prophet explained that this salaam spreads love and brotherhood. This urges us to spread salaam(peace), as mentioned above, among those whom we know and those whom we do not know.

 

Spreading peace is the first level of righteousness and the first quality of brotherhood, which is the key to unity . By spreading peace the Muslims love for one another grows stronger and they demonstrate their distinctive symbols and spread a feeling of security among themselves.

 

 

How was the peace icon created?

 

Thefirst peace sign was designed in 1958 by British artist Gerald Holtom for theCampaign for Nuclear Disarmament(CND), which was having its first major march in England. Holtom explained that the symbol superimposed the semaphore letters “N” and “D” over each other.

 

                                     

 

 

How “V shaped” symbol came into picture?

 

In the 1940s, during the secondworld war, a campaign by the western alliesto use the signto represent "Victory" proved quite effective. During theVietnam war, in the 1960s, the "V sign" was widely adopted bythe countercultureas asymbol of peace. Shortlyafter this,people startedindicating it as Peace.

                                            

 

 

Between the two different signification of the same icon i.e Peace and Victory, CollabDeen believes Victory in ourlives can be achieved only when there is Peaceamong ourselves.

 

 

Our aim is to spread the message of peace across the globe, after all this is what Islam preaches us!

 

Jazak-Allah khair.

 

 

The origin of CollabDeen’s Peace Sign

 

1) What does the peace hand sign mean?

You must have seen it. And probably have done it too. From kids to adults, we’ve all done it.
Im talking about the Peace hand sign.

The celebrated Peace Hand Sign or also known as the Victory sign is a hand gesture in which the index and middle fingers are raised and parted to make a “V” shape with all the other remaining fingers clenched.

Created In the 60s, the "V sign" was widely regarded and associated as a symbol of Peace.  Shortly thereafter, it also became adopted as a gesture implying a feeling of not only peace but also happiness.

2) Why Peace? – Peace and Islamic Philosophy.

You must be asking me, “Why the Peace hand sign?”

Peace and Islam are ingrain to one another. The word “salaam” (سلام) means “peace” as it originates from the same root as the word Islam.  “Salam” is also being use as a form of greeting one another with peace which expresses care and brotherhood.

CollabDeen which refers to Collaboration of Deen, aims to collaborate universal Muslim communities using advanced technology.
