      To be observed by Muslim communities across CANADA

      Date: April 11th 2002

      Muslims are being asked to observe the sunnah of the Prophet (peace be on
      him) of fasting on Thursdays. Muslim organzations in every province within
      Canada (as well as other parts of the world) will be partaking in this
      event. Please join us in a concerted effort to fast on THURSDAY, APRIL
      11th, 2002.

      During this time we are asking that we all try to remember our brothers and
      sisters who are being slaughtered in Palestine as well as those who are
      being fought and unjustly killed.

      We would also like to show the media that Muslims throughout Canada and the
      entire world (Al Jazeera) that we are enraged at the atrocities occuring to
      our Palestinian brethern. (Press releases, etc. will be sent out via CAIR.)

      It is requested that those who can afford to save their money to donate it
      to your local charity organization in order to help bring relief to our
      brothers and sisters.

      Finally please request your Imams of your local mosques to recite Qunoot
      An-Nazilat. This should be performed in times of calamity and which we are
      truly facing right now.

      of what came unto those who passed away before you? Affliction smote them

      help of God is nigh." (2:214)
