Happy Eid by Harper

‪Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement to mark Eid al-Fitr:

“Eid al-Fitr, or the Festival of the Breaking of the Fast, marks the end of Ramadan, which is considered to be the holiest month of the year for Muslims in Canada and around the world.

“The month-long fast was a time to focus on spiritual renewal, almsgiving, and strengthening family and community relations.

“Eid al-Fitr also provides an opportunity for all Canadians to reflect on the contributions of Canada’s diverse Muslim community, numbering approximately one million people.

 

Welcome by Madame Harper to Iftar.

“Just last month, Laureen and I were pleased to host the first-ever Iftar reception at 24 Sussex with Muslim families of many backgrounds from across Canada. As I noted that evening, Ramadan is a special time that encourages humility, charity, family, community and faith, and I was delighted to have the opportunity to mark Iftar with members of the community.
