Oc­to­ber is Is­lamic His­tory Month

The Miracle - - Special -

Is­lamic His­tory Month Canada is an ed­u­ca­tional and cul­tural project orig­i­nated, de­vel­oped and spon­sored by the Cana­dian Is­lamic Con­gress.

The ob­jec­tive of IHMC is to mo­ti­vate and in­spire Cana­dian Mus­lims to an­nu­ally share their his­tory, her­itage and cul­ture with fel­low Cana­di­ans dur­ing one month, to be called the Is­lamic His­tory Month Canada (IHMC). This goal is to be achieved through com­mu­nity and pub­lic events such as; ex­hi­bi­tions, lec­tures, celebrity tours, book fairs, and other com­ple­men­tary ac­tiv­i­ties. This will be a month in which Cana­dian Mus­lims cel­e­brate and share our di­verse civ­i­liza­tion, in­clud­ing our con­tri­bu­tions to the arts, sci­ences, medicine, ar­chi­tec­ture, hu­man­i­ties, mu­sic, spir­i­tu­al­ity, and ev­ery area of hu­man knowl­edge. It will be­come a per­ma­nent part of Canada’s mul­ti­cul­tural cal­en­dar with sim­i­lar events across the coun­try and will build bridges of un­der­stand­ing and ap­pre­ci­a­tion between Mus­lims and all other C an ad i an s . More­over, IHMC will en­hance Canada’s ties, both eco­nom­i­cally and cul­tur­ally, with other Mus­lim coun­tries.

The IHMC Ad­vi­sory Board in­cludes sen­a­tors, pub­lic fig­ures, aca­demics, in­ter-faith ac­tivists and Mus­lim com­mu­nity lead­ers.
