Dear Friends of CIC and Friday Magazine Readers -- As Salamu ‘Alaikum (Peace be with you);
The Canadian Islamic Congress is deeply grateful for the past and present support of its Friday Magazine readership.
May God reward you and give blessings to all the families in our worldwide readership community.
As you may know from reading the weekly Friday Magazine and our various releases and communiqués, under new leadership CIC is moving steadily forward on many key files that affect all of us - among them, Islamic History Month Canada, Civil Liberties, Human Rights and Human Rights Commissions, Gaza (Palestine), and Afghanistan.
With so much at stake, and so much to gain by working together, we hope that our new president Sr. Wahida Valiante and her CIC team can count on your full support in their efforts.
CIC is committed to working with you, for YOU and for OUR future generations of Muslim Canadians.
To do that, we need to ask for YOUR help so that CIC can continue this great and challenging work.
We promise that your generous donations will be greatly appreciated and appropriately utilized.
Your contributions will give us the moral support and assurance that what we do is valued, especially by those of you who have already shown your commitment by asking to receive the Friday Magazine every week.
And when you respond to the many articles and news items we provide through this publication, we know that our activities have reached a solid grassroots community.
Your advice, suggestions, guidance in this regard are always appreciated and will be considered in preparing short- term and long-term goals for the CIC and for the content of the Friday Magazine.
