After the historic results of June 7, we will be seeing many new faces in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.
Muslim Link would like to introduce you to some of the new Muslim Canadian Members of Provincial Parliament we hope to be hearing great things from over the course of their political careers.
In order to help our readers get to know these MPPs better, we have compiled some videos about the candidates and interviews they have participated in, so readers can become more familiar with their lives and work.
Getting educated on party platforms and election issues is tough and time consuming no matter when you do it.
During Ramadhan, we know it's even harder.
So the Canadian Muslim Vote (TCMV) interviewed each of the party leaders, to ask them questions about the provincial issues that you told us were the most important to you, via the pre-election Provincial Issues Survey.
A Nikah – an Islamic marriage contract – has to fulfil certain requirements to be considered binding under Islamic law, one of which is the Mahr. A Mahr is a sum of money, jewelry, or any other valuable assets that is given by the groom to the wife as security in case of a breakdown in their relationship or death of the husband. The amount specified in the marriage contract and/or the property to be gifted may vary depending on many things, including the wealth of the groom. That gift becomes the wife’s exclusive property.
Liberal MPP Dr. Shafiq Qaadri (Etobicoke North) intends to file a motion on the first day of the Legislature’s spring sitting on February 20th, 2018, to proclaim January 29th a Day of Remembrance and Action against Islamophobia in the province of Ontario.
