Ottawa, May 16 (IBNS): Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has wished all Muslim people in the country and across the world on the beginning of Ramadan.

Issuing a statement, Trudeau said: "Over the coming month, families and friends will gather in mosques and homes, fast during the daytime, and, in the evening, break their fast with iftar and pray together.

“Ramadan is a time of prayer and spiritual contemplation, and a chance to reflect on values like compassion, gratitude, and generosity. For all of us, Ramadan asks us to do more to put those values into practice, appreciate our many blessings, and give generously to others in our communities and around the world."

Trudeau said that Ramadan is an opportunity to celebrate the Muslim communities of the country.

"In Canada, Ramadan is also an opportunity to celebrate our country’s Muslim communities, and the important contributions Muslim Canadians make each day."

Ramadan, the ninth month of Muslim calendar, is widely celebrated by Muslims by fasting.
