Dr. Munir El Kassem: How Palestinians Celebrate Ramadan in Canada


Ramadan began on April 2nd, and Palestinian Muslims join other Muslims across Canada in spiritual reflection, in acts of charity, and in gathering in community.  In this episode, Nur and Tom are joined by Dr. Munir El Kassem to talk about Ramadan, and how it can strengthen the ties of heritage, history, and identity among Muslim Palestinian-Canadians. Dr. El Kassem also describes what Ramadan traditions are unique to Palestinians, and how being an ethnic minority in North America influences Ramadan observances.

    This is the same person who was scheduled to be the guest speaker at a Fundraising fo Masjid Ayesha in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, 3 years ago but declined at the last minute because of pressure he received from another prominent mosque with the largest Budget in Alberta. I lost respect for Dr. Munir El-Kassem after this.
