Ramadan Mubarak

Dear Muslim Sisters and Brothers,

During this time of observing the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, I am honored to extend greetings to the Saskatchewan Muslim community on behalf of Multi-Faith Saskatchewan.

Our community is enriched by the presence of many world religions, faiths and beliefs. But more than their presence, faith groups such as the Muslim community contribute significantly to building a strong society.

Holy Days such as Ramadan are vital to the spiritual growth of Muslims as a time to engage in prayer and spiritual reflection, self-discipline and sacrifice.

It is our hope that this holy month allows you to enjoy time with family and community, and to extend hospitality, to reach out to others in need and to devote time to worship and prayer to the Creator.

Blessings and peace,

Moses Kanhai

President

Multi-Faith Saskatchewan
