Friday Night Reflections: Looking Back, Striving Forward

July 16, 2021 | Canada

With summer here and vaccinations increasing in Canada, we begin to look to the future with hope and optimism. This new stage invites the opportunity to reflect on who we are, where we come from, and where we are going.

Join host Kanwal Hayat this Friday as we reflect on the journey of our community from its origins in migration and settlement. Dr. Zahra N. Jamal will provide an overview of migration and refugees from an Islamic perspective. Al-Rahim Moosa will provide fascinating glimpses into the work FOCUS Humanitarian Assistance is undertaking to help displaced Jamati members. Finally, President Ameerally Kassim-Lakha will offer insight on both the past and the promising future of the Jamat, and how we are helping to underwrite future success with current efforts to strengthen the Jamat's resilience.

This episode of Friday Night Reflections will mark the season finale of the show. FNR will break for the remainder of the summer and Inshallah will return, in a modified form, in the fall. We thank all our viewers for their continued support.
