Great Canadian Mosque Trip
Part of our mission at Let the Quran Speak is to showcase the contributions that Muslim Canadians are making across Canada. In the future, we hope to be able to travel across Canada to fulfill that mission. In the mean time, we are inspired by the work of Adnan at the Great Canadian Mosque Trip. Adnan has been travelling across Canada, showcasing significant mosques and Muslim communities across the country. If you want to learn more about Canada’s Muslim communities, the Great Canadian Mosque Trip is a great place to start!
