Saturday, February 25 at 7:30 PM – 9 PM
The Canadian Muslim community is in a state of flux; An Anti-Islamophobia Motion is making its way through the hoops and hurdles of our Parliament. While the growing community is still reeling from last month’s Quebec City Mosque shootings. All the while, daily news headlines coming out of our neighbor’s to the South (USA) provide no relief.
This event specifically aims to target vulnerable Muslim youth from across the GTA; teaching the concept of non-violence and how it is a fundamental principle in Islam. The Islamic concept of non-violence can be traced back to the Prophet Muhammad . Shaykh Dr. Muhammad Al-Ninowy will be going over the concept of non-violence and explaining a collection of Prophetic nonviolence and peace methods and practices that have irrefutably benefited our civilization. These concepts, methods, and practices are in greater need today.
“According to Canada’s 2011 National Household Survey, there were 1,053,945 Muslims in Canada or about 3.2% of the population, making them the second largest religion after Christianity. In the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), 7.7% of the population is Muslim, and in Greater Montreal, Muslims are 6% of the total population.”
Event date: Saturday, February 25 at 7:30 PM – 9 PM
