Adam Day was founded by Mr. Khwaja Shamsuddin Azeemi (Patriarch of the Azeemia Sufi Order) in 2003, and has been celebrated in many countries around the world since. In the present turbulent world it is important to remember that we all have a responsibility to promote love, peace and harmony in our diverse society. Scholars of different faiths and practices share their views on how we can all be united, being the descendants of one father 'Adam', although we follow different beliefs and practice different faiths.

Adam is generally believed to be the first human being and the father of human race. Adam Day therefore is celebrated as a reminder of our common humanity, regardless of one‘s faith. The aim of Adam Day is to promote the message of unity, harmony and peace between all races and religions and a reminder for us to live in peace with each other. Like droplets of water we must gather to form a river of friendship.

The hallmark of the event is the message of peace from Khwaja Shamsuddin Azeemi, the current patriarch of the Azeemia Sufi Order.
