The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada has launched a national campaign titled “Fast with a Muslim Friend.”

This annual campaign allows Canadians to participate in Ramadan with their Muslim friends and fellow Canadians.

On June 6, more than one billion Muslims across the globe will began this 30-day spiritual journey, as they enter the holy month of Ramadan.

The Holy Qur’an acknowledges that fasting was prescribed to many faiths, including Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and Hinduism. As a pillar of Islam, it is particularly sacred to Muslims.

Through this campaign, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at aims to share the experience of Ramadan with its fellow Canadians.

This national campaign gives Canadians an opportunity to experience how to start, keep and break a fast, while learning 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. This is the first Ramadan for Muslim Syrian refugees in Canada, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama'at will be providing for the fasting requirements of several Syrian refugee families.

Canadians can partake in this unique experience by visiting www.FastWithMuslims.com.

The President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada, Lal Khan Malik, conveyed his invitation to all Canadians and said, “As we enter the holy month of Ramadan, I invite my fellow Canadians to experience the spiritual uplifting provided by Ramadan and take part in this unique campaign.”
