Give Iftar and Sahur this Ramadan

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.

“Whoever gives food to a fasting person with which to break his fast will have a reward equal to his, without it detracting in the slightest from the reward of the fasting person” Al-Tirmidhi




Canada’s House of Commons has voted overwhelmingly to declare China’s treatment of its Uighur minority population a genocide.




The motion – which passed 266 to 0 – was supported by all opposition parties and a handful of lawmakers from the governing Liberal Party.




Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and most members of his cabinet abstained.




The motion makes Canada just the second country after the United States to recognise China’s actions as genocide.

Lawmakers also voted to pass an amendment asking Canada to call on the International Olympic Committee to move the 2022 Winter Olympics from Beijing “if the Chinese government continues this genocide”.




China responded late on Tuesday, saying it condemned and rejected Canada’s motion, according to a Reuters report. It quoted foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin as saying that China had lodged “stern representations” with Canada.
