Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW) is currently accepting applications for its scholarships for the 2008-2009 academic year. Scholarships will be awarded to Muslim women pursuing post-secondary programs in education, social sciences, social justice, media and the arts.

At its 25th Anniversary conference last year, CCMW awarded its first Lila Fahlman scholarship to two Canadian Muslim women. Through the generosity of community members, this year CCMW has added two new awards.

The scholarships to be offered in 2008 include:

Muslim Women in Leadership Award, for which CCMW was able to secure funding through the work of Dr Nozhat Choudry and Saima Haider, will be awarded to Muslim women pursuing studies in media and the arts.

Social Justice Award, sponsored by Hassan Law Office of London, Ontario

The Lila Fahlman Scholarship, named after the late Dr. Lila Fahlman, founder of CCMW and renowned educator; sponsored by CCMW with a generous donation from Ash-Lee Maritime Inc, Fadumo Gurey and CCMW members and friends. Preference will be given to those students enrolled in social science, education or communication programs.

The scholarships will be awarded to Canadian Muslim women who are enrolled in a full-time undergraduate or graduate degree program, diploma or certificate programs at a Canadian college or university. At least one of the recipients of the Lila Fahlman scholarship will be a Muslim woman of African descent interested in health promotion and/or social justice. .

The deadline for application is 18 July 2008. Award Recipients will be announced in early fall 2008. For more information visit www.ccmw.com

The Qirat’ul Qur’an Competition 2008
The Qirat’ul Qur’an Competition 2008 is the 10th annual qira’at competition hosted by McMaster University Muslim Students Association with the sole purpose of glorifying the Holy Qur’an. QQC 2008 will be held in a Hamilton downtown theatre and promises multi-level competitions, over 50 competitors, a vibrant food and bazaar area, and hundreds in audience and volunteers.

There will be two aspects to the competition this year. The juniors competition will be composed of various Islamic schools that compete to have the best tajweed. Children attending Islamic Schools are encouraged to come to the Qirat’ul Qur’an Competition. This event regularly draws several Islamic School students from a variety of different Islamic School programs. Come attend this year’s Qirat’ul Qur’an Competition, and experience what these students have been learning!

The Seniors competition caters more to university students and involves 7 MSAs competing to have the best tajweed and memorization skills. This part of the competition provides one of the best recitation exhibitations inshAllah from brothers at the following universities: McMaster, University of Toronto – St. George, University of Toronto – Mississauga, University of Toronto – Scarborough, Ryerson, York and Western.

During the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, I remember the stories emanating from France of young Muslim schoolgirls expelled for wearing the Hijab.

While many of the young sisters were permitted to return to school wearing the Hijab, wider questions had been raised.

How does a purely secular public school system accommodate religious beliefs? What about the issues of freedom and oppression of women? Were these girls influenced by the “integristes” of Algeria, who were aspiring to implement an Islamic government in the former French colony?

Was this another example of “immigrants” failing to integrate into French society (a favorite theme of le Front National, a national anti-immigrant party)? Was this the beginning of the end of the strict separation between church and state?
