Select foodora restaurant partners to deliver ‘Break Your Fast’ packs with every order placed at dusk.
Canadian Muslims will observe Ramadan beginning Saturday, May 27 through to Monday, June 26, and on-demand food delivery service foodora will help customers identify halal food options by adding a halal symbol to select restaurant partners on its website and app. Throughout Ramadan, foodora will provide its users with a complimentary ‘Break Your Fast with foodora’ pack with every order placed between 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. from 39 participating restaurant partners that offer halal options in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. Each Ramadan ‘Break Your Fast’ pack will include two 500 mL bottles of Happy Water, and a box of Masa Dates, a traditional custom.
“The media has a way of negatively representing Islam and coming here today really showed me that the Islamic community is far from that,” says Dhanuddara Mohottalage, a young high school graduate of Buddhist faith.
Ms. Mohottalage joined many other non-Muslims to celebrate and learn more about the month of Ramadhan at the 5th Annual Harmony Iftar dinner held at Sala San Marco Banquet Hall on Friday, July 26. The fast-breaking dinner is an annual event that invites Muslims to build a stronger relationship with their friends and neighbours of other faiths by introducing them to the holy month of Ramadhan and correcting any misconceptions they may have about Islam in a friendly relaxed and environment.
With about roughly 300 guests, the hall was a mosaic of Ottawa's diversity.
Muslim Link checked out one of the weekly iftars organized by the University of Ottawa's Muslim Students' Association (MSA) on Wednesday, July 24th. Hundreds of people, mainly University of Ottawa students, attended theiftar where food was mainly provided by students and their families.
