Canadian Muslims host event to educate city about Ramadan

On Saturday, more than 100 community leaders from around the city, including church dignitaries and politicians, came to a pre-Ramadan luncheon at the RCMP Heritage Centre to learn what this sacred month is all about.

"People are nervous about asking questions," explained Sabreena Haque, a Muslim woman and member of the Regina chapter of the Islamic Association of Saskatchewan, which organized the event.

"It's good to just come forward and just explain to people. Once you start talking, then people start asking questions."

She explained the event is meant to create a bridge between communities.

"It's a great opportunity to let others know who we are, why do we do this every year and what effect it has, and the generosity that we do," said Faisal Khan, president of the association's Regina chapter. "We call this home now, just as you do and it's a great place to be."
