Calgary Muslim families has opened their doors since the beginning of Ramadan, inviting their neighbors to share festivities of the holy month and give back to the community.

“We actually wanted people to see what do Muslim people do during Ramadan and how do they break the fast, maybe share some of the spirit of Ramadan,” Polad Mirzayev, a Canadian Muslim in Calgary, told CTV Calgary.

 “We have a lot of stereotypes about Muslims or in general about Islam and stuff and we just want to break the stereotypes because that’s not what it is these days and I want people to feel positive about Islam in general or Muslims in general,” he added.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and fasting is a way for worshippers to improve moral character and for spiritual renewal.
