Several free workshops and seminars planned

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Canada organized and hosted a highly successful holiday dinner for those in need in Toronto on Dec. 22.

Hundreds of men, women and children from the Jane and Finch community, including leaders of various Christian groups, gathered at the Driftwood Community Recreation Centre to partake in this unique event.

“The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Canada is taking a leadership role in offering social services and giving back to those who need it the most; this is a fundamental teaching of Islam,” said Muslim youth leader and event organizer, Abid Mirza.

This event marks the launch of a campaign by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Canada aimed to help alleviate some of the prevalent issues faced by the Jane and Finch community. Several free workshops and seminars have been planned at the recreation centre for next several months to help achieve this objective.

“As Ahmadi Muslims, we endeavour to provide ongoing support and permanent solutions to the challenges faced by those who are less fortunate. This is the teaching of Islam and the practice of the founder of Islam, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him),” continued Mirza.
