A soundscape I created while working for CBC News Calgary about an Ahmadiyya Muslim campaign “Fast with a Muslim Friend.”
Air date: July 7, 2015 for CBC’s The Homestretch.
While the summer is a good time for teens to hang out with friends, shoot some hoops, eat some junk food .. that’s not the case right now for two Calgary brothers.
Ahkbar and Munib Ali are Muslim. They’re in the midst of Ramadan, the holy month when Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset.
The Ali brothers are also taking part of a national program called “Fast with a Muslim Friend.”
They invited some of their non-Muslim buddies over to the house … to try fasting for a day.
We also dropped by.
Those are Calgary brothers Akbar and Munib Ali – teaching a couple of their friends about fasting during Ramadan.
The “Fast with a Muslim Friend” program is being organized by the Ahmadiyya Muslim community in Canada.
The website is fastwithmuslims.com.
Ramadan ends on July 17th.
