Islamic Heritage Month

October in Ontario is Islamic Heritage Month (IHM).  At the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), the academic theme for IHM this year is: “Reflect. Celebrate. Learn.”

It is my honour to be included on this year’s IHM promotional poster, along with the smiles of other Canadian Muslims who, like me, work to make Canada a better place.   It was also my pleasure to share some songs at this year’s Islamic Heritage Month kick-off on September 25th at the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto.

There are many exciting events planned throughout the month, at a variety of locations across Toronto, to give students, parents and community members opportunities to learn about the rich culture and traditions of Muslims in Canada.  Click here for a calendar of program information.

One of the most exciting offerings of the TDSB for IHM is the Resource Guide they have developed for teachers, containing valuable information and activities for schools.   View and download the Islamic Heritage Month Resource Guide here.
