Project Overview

Our project talks about how religion Islam Fought vices and put rules to stop them from spreading 14 centuries ago. And it shows that absolute freedom (in another way) can lead to a complete disaster. It mentions someterrifying statistics about sex in some countries which allow adultery which leads them to some serious Diseases for example (AIDS/HIV). And it shows that Islam by making women wears the Islamic uniform like (Hijab) was a protecting to them and maintaining their dignity and pride. And we mention Islam's solutions to adultery.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

Our worst problem was the lack of time because me and Omar are in our final year in school which is a very difficult year by the way we have alot of homework in order to go to a fine college we used to work on the project in our spare time which wasn’t too much the second problem was translation to English so we had to ask a lot of elders and teachers to correct our mistakes

5. Our Project Sound Bite

This project Islam Vs. vices has increased our awareness of wrong actions which is being done in foreign countries and it shows clearly that freedom is not doing what you like without hurting others it’s doing what you like without hurting others or your self

6. How did your activities and research for this Doors to Diplomacy Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?

The purpose of our project was to compare between laws that can keep the community pure And in a good health indeed this project fit into your required state curriculum because we are in an Azhar school; which teach us Islamic jurisprudence which helped us on the project We learned a new skill which is team work and coordination with your team member and we learned how to make a website .although we didn’t have much time we were able to finish it because of the internet I don’t think that without the internet we would have made in time.

2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your Doors to Diplomacy project both on-line and in person.

In online we made a Facebook page witch talked about our project we put there some of our topics and we display them for discussion and sometimes when we question our relative about our project and they mentioned That it’s a true problem and the solution were more than enough to end. This topics which we wrote had a lot of disagreement some told us not to mention the difference between religions and laws only and some told us that there was unnecessary information and they were right because at first our project was more than 30 pages thankfully it isn’t now.

4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?

Because of our subject have a lot of difficult our friends offered help to us they gave us a lot of information and a lot of advice, some if our teachers comment on some topics when we showed them the topics. When we were asking people for their opinion most of them didn’t mind at all.
