Food Basics and Sayyidah Zainab Mosque unite for multi-faith Ramadan celebration

Food Basics is teaming up with Ajax’s Sayyidah Zainab Muslim Community Centre to celebrate Ramadan.

The collaboration aims to bring people of all faiths together to ‘Celebrate! Share! Enjoy!’

“The idea of an interfaith iftar is to reflect and reconnect with the wider community and to remind ourselves that faith is not an isolated task but instead something which inspires — and is inspired — by the community,” says Shayan Khurshid, volunteer events manager at the Sayyidah Zainab Muslim Community Centre.

“Now more than ever, we need to unite for peace and harmony,” adds Zahid Rafique, the centre’s volunteer president. “(Today, we hope to) start important conversations about living in peaceful and multicultural communities and how we can come together to inspire the next generation of advocates for interfaith harmony.”

Food Basics and the Sayyidah Zainab Muslim Community Centre are collaborating to educate Ontarians on better supporting their Muslim neighbours.

The Sayyidah Zainab Muslim Community Centre, known for its commitment to interfaith dialogue, has been promoting harmony for years, according to a statement.

“The idea of an interfaith iftar is to reflect and reconnect with the wider community,” says Khurshid, volunteer events manager at the Centre.

The highlight of the affair will be a unique interfaith iftar at the Ajax Masjid in early April. The event will feature Arabic and English readings of the Quran, prayer observations, and a children’s craft corner, allowing participants to learn and engage with Ramadan traditions.
