Proclaimed in 1992, the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities is annually observed on December 3rd. Each year, a theme is identified to provide focus on the removal of physical, technological, and attitudinal barriers. The UN theme for this year is “Building Back Better: toward a disability- inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID-19 World”.
Since 2009, the founders of Muslims with Disabilities International, MDI, have promoted a call to action for Imams and Khatibs to dedicate their Friday sermons to raise awareness about disability and Islam. The 2020 campaign is once again coordinated by DEEN Support Services and endorsed by the Canadian Council of Imams (CCI)
