In 2007, Canada's federal parliament officially declared October as Islamic History Month in Canada.

Islamic History Month Canada is an educational and cultural project originated, developed and sponsored by the Canadian Islamic Congress.

The objective of IHMC is to motivate and inspire Canadian Muslims to annually share their history, heritage and culture with fellow Canadians during one month, to be called the Islamic History Month Canada (IHMC).

This goal would be achieved through community and public events such as; exhibitions, lectures, celebrity tours, book fairs, and other complementary activities.

October was chosen as a month in which Canadian Muslims celebrate and share our diverse civilization, including our contributions to the arts, sciences, medicine, architecture, humanities, music, spirituality, and every area of human knowledge. It will become a permanent part of Canada's multicultural calendar with similar events across the country and will build bridges of understanding and appreciation between Muslims and all other Canadians.

So what are some ideas as to what to do in terms of dawah?

Are there some ready kits of info to print out and to send to schools? What other areas should we be sending information about islam to?

It is up for every city/community how to participate in this.  There are no kits for this, again every community decides the most suitable method, whether it is a public lecture, an exhibition, or a TV program, depending on the resources available.

take care
wassalam
