Ma'an Lil-Salaam
means many things.
It means escape and return,
Dialogue, forgiveness and reconciliation.
It means independence. 

After daesh, I learned many things. 

Which are my rights, my women's rights. 

I had the courage to go to the judge and get my children back.
I opened a tailoring shop.
I got a job as an educator. 

They told me that Muslims were bad people. 

My children today play sports with their children. 

I feel closer to the people, to my people. 

Ma'an Lil-Salaam

My name is Noor, Rasool, Anfal.
My name is Mariam, Ranin, Dalal. 

I am from Mosul, from Bartella, from Hamdaniya.

I fled, I lost a husband, a son.
I came back. I trust the others. I trust myself.
Ma'an Lil-Salaam
