Share the Warmth - Sk. Moola from Islamic Relief Canada
As temperatures drop in Canada and our heaters turn on, refugees are terrified of what this winter will bring. Hundreds of thousands of refugees and children living in camps cannot afford the luxury of fuel to keep themselves warm. Food is scarce and the need for basic items such as blankets, mattresses and clothes has never been greater. For them, the changing weather means more than just digging out last winter’s coat – it’s a threat to survival. Islamic Relief is working across the globe to provide vital support this winter to those who would otherwise go without. There are currently over 3 million Syrian refugees seeking shelter in neighbouring countries, often living in temporary accommodation including tents and make-shift shelters. But Islamic Relief is there supporting them, in countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan. With your support, we will be reaching out to families like these this winter, providing food, mattresses, clothes, blankets and other essential warming equipment. Together we can help hundreds of thousands of people worldwide.

Free Public Lecture: Human Rights in Islamic Thought
The Manitoba Islamic Association and the Canadian Museum on Human Rights Present a free public lecture on the topic of "Human Rights in Islamic Thought" The guest speaker will be Dr. Ingrid Mattson, a leading scholar on Islam in North America. Human rightshave been the subject of much discussion among Muslim thinkers since the rise of Islam, while the key concerns have shifted over time. The Qur'an and teachings of the Prophet Muhammad are particularly insistent upon the rights of all people to life, basic subsistence and religious freedom. In the imperial age of Islam, upholding the rights of religious and local communities and self-organizing entities (such as trade guilds) to a degree of self-governance was balanced with the desire to offer individuals an appeal to justice outside the collectivist ethos. At the dawn of the modern era, reformists articulated a theological ethics of freedom and rights centered within nationalism that sought to give full equality to all human beings, seeking to abolish slavery, religious discrimination and patriarchy. The sobering reality is that there is rarely total success in achieving the rights advocated for in the past, while we continue to face more challenges to rights as new technologies that can be used for human liberation or repression by any state or group capable of seizing power become available. Authority, power, technology and identity are universal themes of human rights struggles that engage Muslims in our world today.
