Kicking off with a rendition of “O Canada” sung by a group of Muslim children, members of Saskatoon’s Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at opened the doors of their Mosque to the public to help Saskatoon celebrate Canada’s birthday.

Roughly 700 people attended the event, which was hosted at the Baitur Rahmat Mosque, located in the city’s southeast. Waving Canadian flags and wearing red and white, there was no shortage of Canada Day spirit at the place of worship.

Syed Shah, president of the Saskatoon Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at, said the event was an important one, as loving one’s country and home is a part of the Islamic faith.
