NEWS RELEASE
MARYAM MOSQUE
*************************
Maryam Mosque, Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada is proud to Launch our "Fast with a Muslim Friend" Campaign during The Holy Month of Ramadan.

Starting May 6, 2019, over a billion Muslims worldwide began 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 any gaps that may exist.

As part of this campaign, Canadians will get to experience how to start, keep, and break a fast, as well as learn about why fasting during Ramadan is a core tenet of Islam.

Fasting during this Holy month teaches self-control, discipline, and inspires awareness of those who are less fortunate. Muslims are also encouraged to give additional alms during this month.
