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.

More Canadians see racism as a serious problem today than one year ago, according to a new Ipsos poll conducted exclusively for Global News.

One year ago, less than half (47 per cent) of Canadians polled viewed racism as a serious issue in the country. But that number shot up 13 points in one year.

The poll, conducted between July 8 and 10, found a majority — sixty per cent — of respondents believed racism is a serious problem in the country.
