Welcome everyone! Salam! My name is Ryan Rasheed Carter. I have the honour to serve as Chaplain in the Canadian Forces. Since embracing the Muslim faith in 2001, I have travelled the world studying traditional Islam, completing academic study and immersing myself in the diversity of cultures and traditions I have encountered. Through my training and serving as an Imam/Khateeb/Teacher in various congregations in the UK, USA and Canada my ‘Call’ to Chaplaincy was loud and clear. I am currently a member of the Canadian Council of Imams and reside in the grand ol’ praries with a supportive wife and three little ones; Khaleel, Leah and Andalucia.
