      The Program Card of 2013

      A Glimpse Of the 2013 Event   

      Women Rights In Islam 

      A wonderful speech presented by: Maggie Amin who spoke about  women in Islam and how Islam gave women their rights 1800 years ago

      The Arabian Bedouin Tent

      Background:  The word Bedouin in the Arabic language refers to ‘desert dwellers’ who constitute a small portion of the population of the Middle East and live spread out through most of the desert area from the Atlantic cost of the Sahara west to the Sinai desert and east to the Arabian Desert.  

      Bedouins live in long, low tents made from goat and camel hair cloth woven by the Bedouin women, the floor is covered by rugs and cushions.  

      These tents are ideal for the desert life conditions, as they can be packed up quickly and posses the ideal qualities of providing a waterproof and warm shelter.

       

       

      At this ethnic evening our guests experienced the Bedouin life: 

      Our original Bedouin Tent displays a beautiful party surrounding , vivid colors, textures and patterns from the East.

      The tent display provides our guests a glimpse into the Bedouins livelihood and society.   

      Upon your entrance into the tent, you enter the life of a Bedouin guest, be greeted, welcomed, and offered rich Medina dates and Arabian coffee.  Photos had been taken of our guests inside the tent and sent to them as a memorial keepsake.


      Henna


      Background: For over five thousand years henna has been a symbol of good luck, health and sensuality in the Arab world.

      Generations of women have used a paste made primarily of dried ground henna leaves to cover their hands and feet with designs ranging from simple blobs to intricate geometric patterns designed to ward off evil, promote fertility and attract good energy.


      We had two Henna artists at the event this year who provided beautiful Henna designs for our guests who chose to participate. 

      Arabic "Islamic" Calligraphy 

      Background: Arabic calligraphy is a primary form of art that displays Islamic visual expression and creativity. 

      Throughout the vast geography of the Islamic world, Arabic calligraphy is a symbol that represents unity, beauty, and power. 

      The aesthetic principles of Arabic calligraphy are a reflection of the cultural values of the Muslim world. 

      A thorough investigation into the aesthetic inferences between Arabic and non-Arabic calligraphy provide an approach for understanding the essential spirit of each culture.  


      Our Calligraphy Booth 2013, was a collection of calligraphic work on display at the event.  

      Our guests had the opportunity to have their names printed in Arabic on a bookmark to keep as a souvenir.  

      Our guests also had the option to have their photo taken in front of the calligraphy booth, displaying the Arabic calligraphic works as a background.



      The Dabke Dance "Arab Folklore" 

      The Dabke dance is a traditional line dance made up of synchronized feet tapping and different combinations of foot movements repeated to a rhythmic beat that is often performed at joyous gatherings throughout the Middle East. 

      It is danced in long lines of people holding hands, synchronizing their movements together to the rhythmic tune of the beat.  This dance represents strength, unity, cooperation, and pride in the homeland.


      This year we had 3 wonderful shows of Palestinian Dabka, Syrian Debka and a traditional Syrian ceremony marriage show. 

      Anasheed Performance


      Background:  Anasheed is Islamic vocal music that is either sung without instrumental instrument sounds, or sung accompanied by percussion instruments such as the daff (a type of drum).  

      The lyrics of the anasheeds consist of references typically to Islamic beliefs, history, and current events.  

      Anasheeds are popular form of song throughout the Islamic world.

       


      Anasheed of 2013 was performed by Nour Harb and her lovely group.  

       

      Middle East Dinner

      In accordance with the Middle Eastern cultural cooking tradition, the concepts of hospitality and generosity prevail.  Meals are typically a grand affair, with a lot of sharing, and a great deal of warmth over the dinner table.

      Our generous Middle Eastern buffet gave gave our guests the experience of how we treat our dinner guests in our own homes.  

      We offered a grand dinner buffet with plenty of traditional Middle Eastern cuisine dishes for everyone to taste and experience.  It’s how we treat our honored guests.

      Our Middle Eastern Bazaar


      In the heart of every Middle Eastern city, there is a vibrant commercial centre – a bazaar that has functioned and thrived for hundreds of years.  

      Our bazaar is a small representation of such a market.  

      There will be traditional Middle Eastern items for sale such as Middle Eastern beaded Jewelry, traditional decorative items many of which are hand made, traditional clothing, as well as other items of our heritage.  Our bazaar provides an opportunity for our guests to purchase genuine Middle Eastern items for keepsake.

       

      FREE BOOKS!  

      Educational literature about Islam is available at the event free of charge.  There is also information available about the Newcomer Centre and resources available.

      Gift Bags to our beautiful Guests and Hosts Ladies

      Ladies Culture Night 2012, a Recap:


      The 2012 Ladies Cultural Night was a great success made possible through the hard work of our valued volunteers.  

      Last year’s event was Egyptian themed and we were entertained by dances and a historical fashion which chronicled the various clothing styles of the Egyptians.  We were serenaded by  poetry and song, and were enlightened by speakers who presented us an accurate depiction about Islam’s stance on Muslim women and highlighted some of the scientific miracles mentioned in the Quran.


      The fun was not limited to the stage however, as our bazaar held many enchanting things for our guests to do.  Our henna artist was on hand to provide beauty and our Bedouin Tent display provided a glimpse into the desert life of a Bedouin.  Our calligraphic art showcase displayed the beauty of  Islamic art.  Our vendors displayed wonderful Middle Eastern artifacts for sale available for our guests to purchase as memorials of this event.

      It was an amazing evening!  


      Maggie Amin "one of our great speakers"  spoke about 

      the myths and realities surrounding Muslim women.
