Silence Hides Violence (Creativity Competition) | Nour DV

Assalamu Alaikum (Peace Be Upon You)

I wanted to share this competition on my site, since this is a much needed topic of discussion in the Muslim community.  Domestic Violence is truly universal and should be abolished in all cultures and religions.  One of the largest causes for consistent Domestic Violence in the home is lack of public declaration of such violence.  For centuries women have kept their voices quiet while forcing themselves and their children to endure the abuse of their spouse and loved ones.  Spreading the word about Domestic Violence and creating awareness is the best way a community can help combat this terrible affliction.  Please share this contest with friends and family and even enter it yourself if you feel ready to share a piece of your heart with others, one of the greatest gifts.  If you or someone you know is suffering from Domestic Violence, there is help and support available for you and your children, thanks to organizations like Nour DV- Nicole Queen

  1. I comment when I especially enjoy a article on a blog or I have something to
    contribute to the conversation. Usually it’s triggered by the fire displayed in the article I read. And after this post Silence Hides Violence (Creativity Competition) | Nour DV | I was excited enough to drop a commenta response 😛 I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be only me or does it look like like a few of these responses come across like coming from brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional places, I would like to follow you. Could you list the complete urls of all your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?


  2. It’s actually a nice and helpful piece of info. I am glad
    that you just shared this useful info with us. Please keep us up to
