The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada has launched a national campaign titled, “Fast with a Muslim Friend”, for Canadians to participate in Ramadan with their fellow Muslims.
Starting June 18, 2015, over a billion Muslims across the globe will begin the 30-Days spiritual journey, as they enter the Holiest month in Islam. While fasting is common among most faiths, including Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Sikhism, fasting during Ramadan is particularly sacred in the religion of Islam. Through this campaign, the community aims to share the experience of Ramadan with fellow Canadians. The community also hopes that this campaign will help remove any misconceptions about Islam, and bridge gaps that may exist amongst Canadians.
