#WelcomeToCanada

In the face of the bigoted statement made by Donald Trump earlier in the week, banning the entry of Muslims into America, Canada, its northern neighbor today stands lofty in manifesting its humanitarian vows, greeting the entry of Syrian refugees warmly into their arms, setting a high standard for all the other Western countries to race towards. And indeed the choir of “Tala’al Badru ‘Alayna” sends a powerful and significant message to humanity. This very song was originally sung to warmly welcome and celebrate the joyous occasion of the arrival of Muslims fleeing persecution in Makkah. Now, this very song echoed in a choir, a traditionally Western pride of musical ensemble welcoming the Syrian refugees which many countries have shut their borders to, into their new and safe home. This is undoubtedly another level of humanitarian gesture that the world has not seen in a long time. And if you’re aware what a winter weather is like, such a warm gesture will certainly force warm tears down your face :’)
