The Carpet of Peace is a poignant short story intended for young readers, conveying a powerful message with a clear meaning. The protagonist, Luqman, and his family are fictional characters inspired by the author’s own experiences. Through Luqman’s diary, the author seeks to portray a more accurate representation of life in Afghanistan’s Bamiyan Valley.

The story is inspired by the incredible work of Afghan carpet weavers, who created the real Peace Carpet. This remarkable carpet was presented to His Holiness Pope Francis by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan – may God protect him – during his visit to the Vatican in September 2016. The Sheikha Fatima bint Mohammed bin Zayed Project for Sustainable Development supports these skilled women weavers, providing them with employment and education for their children, in a sustainable humanitarian effort aimed at improving their lives.
