Ramadan starts tomorrow and it is nice to see elected leaders embrace, celebrate with, and represent the people they serve.
Wishing a blessed Ramadan to Muslims observing the month at home this year. By coming together virtually, we’ll be able to stay connected and still honour the values at the heart of Islam – compassion, peace, and service to others. Ramadan Mubarak! https://t.co/sJg0aRUP0a pic.twitter.com/Bl2ESHvICH— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) April 23, 2020
Today marks the beginning of #Ramadan for Muslims in Canada and around the world. This year, families will gather for Iftar meals virtually.
