Journey of the Midnight SunRegular price $19.95
In 2010, a charity based in Winnipeg initiated a mission to raise funds and transport a mosque to Inuvik, a town situated in the Canadian Arctic. Prior to this, the local Muslim population was constrained to a narrow trailer for their worship services. The mosque traveled an arduous 4,000 kilometers, confronting conditions such as inclement weather, incomplete bridges, limited roads, and low clearance wires, but ultimately arrived before the onset of the first winter freeze. Consequently, it is currently one of the most northern mosques in the world.
