- Social dimensions of fasting
- Duas for Ramadhan which involves praying for the improvement of many social issues taking place around us
- Praying to feed the needy, free the unjustly imprisoned, and other issues throughout the world
- What we can do as Canadian citizens, calling upon the government to act with justice
- Does the CRA restrict charitable organizations from expressing their views about our governments direction and actions?
- Charities aren't allowed to support or fund a party or candidate, but we are allowed to get involved on specific issues, reaching out to politicians to seek change
- Canadian Muslim Vote, a new organization seeking to engage Muslims in politics. No particular support for any political parties, rather a campaign to promote going to the polls
- Why are we commanded to fast?
- The plight of the Palestinian people, facing daily persecution and death
- BDS movement, Boycott, Divest, Sanction
- Leading example of the United Church of Canada, taking a stand against the oppression of the Palestinian people
- The hypocritical stand of the Canadian government under Prime Minister Harper, regarding the Palestine issue
- Canada's official policy via the Foreign Ministry, conflicting with the actions of the current government in a negative way
- Harper governments veiled threats to label BDS movement as an illegal campaign, citing possible hate crime violations
"We can't ignore the socio-political dimension of Islam. One way to help the distressed is to see what we as Canadian Muslims can do. When our government formulates foreign or domestic policy affecting minorities, it should be done on the basis of Justice. This is the minimum we can ask for as followers of Ali. And this will only happen when we get involved in the political process, as I've said for many years."
