Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting, prayer, reflection and community.


  • Tomorrow (2 April 2022), Muslims in Canada and around the world will mark the start of Ramadan. One of the five pillars of Islam, this month-long spiritual journey is a time of fasting, charity and prayer. At the end of each day, families and friends will traditionally gather to enjoy iftar – the meal that breaks their fast at sunset. Ramadan is a special time to show gratitude for the many blessings we share, and reflect on values of peace, compassion and generosity. These same values have helped us all through challenging times these past two years, and will continue to help us as we recover from the pandemic and look ahead with optimism and hope. Ramadan is also an opportunity to recognize the many contributions Muslim Canadians have made and continue to make to our country. Every day, they help build a better Canada by giving back to those less fortunate with zakat contributions, by volunteering to serve important causes, and through their consistent acts of kindness for their communities and neighbors.
