Today marks the start of Canadian Islamic History Month. The Canadian Parliament announced this month in 2007, recognizing the important role that Muslim communities play in Canadian society and highlighting their extraordinary contribution.
During the month of October, Canadians will be able to learn more about the history of Islam in Canada as well as the many accomplishments of fellow Muslims in the arts, sports, academic research, science, literature. and their communities. Now is the time to learn more about the challenges and obstacles they face. This has been a difficult year for Muslim communities across the country as we have witnessed the horrific effects of racism and hatred. These were the phrases announcing the launch of the Canadian Islamic Month, which has been allocated by the Canadian government to express its gratitude and appreciation to the Canadian Muslim community for all the important efforts it replaces and which contributes to the advancement from Canada.
