Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

In March and April 2021, Lajna Imaillah Canada held 17 “Annual Regional Interfaith Symposia” across the country, reports Lajna Imaillah Canada.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions on in-person gatherings, 16 regional interfaith symposia were held virtually.  Alhamdulillah, one region was able to hold their interfaith symposium in-person while observing social distancing guidelines. 

Topics presented included “Women’s rights”, “Justice in an unjust world” and “Does a creator exist?” There were also topics related to Covid-19, including “Responsibilities of the faithful during and after the pandemic” and “Maintaining spirituality in isolation”.

Lajna members took advantage of the online platform to include new features which were different from traditional symposia. For example, interactive aspects were included such as virtual mosque tours, Holy Quran exhibitions, introduction to The Review of Religions and kahoot quizzes.
