“Ramadan is a time of prayer and spiritual contemplation, and a chance to reflect on values like compassion, gratitude, and generosity. For all of us, Ramadan asks us to do more to put those values into practice, appreciate our many blessings, and give generously to others in our communities and around the world.
“In Canada, Ramadan is also an opportunity to celebrate our country’s Muslim communities, and the important contributions Muslim Canadians make each day.
“On behalf of our family, Sophie and I wish all those observing this holy month a blessed and peaceful Ramadan.
