The first Ontario Islamic Heritage Month was celebrated on October 29, 2016 also at Jam’e Abu Bakr Siddique Masjid, a Sunni mosque located at 2665 Lawrence Ave. East in Toronto.

The mosque opened its doors to non-Muslims to learn about the true Islam from Islamic literature that was given away, by listening to speeches of Muslim imams and activists, participating in a Q&A session and a tour of the mosque.

The guest speaker at the event was Liberal MP Salma Zahid who said that Canada and Islam share the same basic value of equality that “makes is true Canadian.” She expressed her hope that such events will help young Muslim Canadians to learn about their religion and culture.

The following are excerpts from Salma Zahid’s speech (to listen to the speech click HERE):

“Equality for all is a basic tenet of Islam and it also makes us true Canadian…
“As the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that we are stronger not in spite of our differences but because of our differences…
“It is a honor to come here and enjoy and celebrate the Islamic Heritage Month…
“Please preserve the heritage, preserve the Canadian values and be a part of society. Happy Islamic Month to all of you…
“This is very very important not only to us, but to our future generation, for our kids and grand-kids. They’ll get to know what their religion is, what their culture is and how the Muslim Canadians are contributing to the social – economic fabric of this country.”
