Ramadan Mubarak: The Spirit of Giving

During April 2023, the Holy month of Ramadhan, time for spiritual reflection, empathy and giving for the Muslim Communities, the Edmonton Council of Muslim Communities, ran a Dawn to Dusk Campaign in support of the less fortunate.  The initiative raised money regardless of race, religion and ethnicity. Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) is reported to have said that one is not a believer if he or she can sleep at night while his/her neighbour is hungry.

A generous amount of $45,000 was raised and presented to the Edmonton Food Bank at the Iftar Dinner hosted by the Lieutenant Governor at the Government House.
