Lebanese Arabic Muslims 

Lebanese Arabic immigrants began coming to Canada as early as 1882, however in limited numbers until 1945. From then on, there were increasing numbers, especially in the 1960s and onward.

Toronto has a large Arab community, home to 22% of the total Arab population in Canada.  Among the self-identified Arab ethnicities in Toronto, Lebanese Arabs make up one of the largest Arab groups, reportedly 15% of the Arab population.

Lebanese Muslims are divided into many branches such as Shiites, Sunnis, Druze, and more. The Lebanese Shia and Sunni Muslims make up each around 27%–29% of the total population, while the Lebanese Druze constitute 5% of the population. 

Lebanon’s Muslims are considerably more secular in their outlook than Muslims in other countries.

Prayer Points:

  • Ask God to raise up GTA Jesus followers to meet and pray for Lebanese Arab Muslims, read the Bible with them, and share meals together.
  • Ask God to bring at least one gospel-centered Christian friend into the life of each GTA Lebanese Arab Muslim’s life and find ways to serve them.
  • Pray that GTA believers who have any training in evangelism to Muslims (e.g. Al Massira, Bridges, Engaging the Nations booklet, etc.) will be burdened to reach out to GTA Lebanese Arabs.
  • Pray for Lebanese Arab Muslims to have visions and dreams of Jesus that lead to salvation

About Loving Muslims Together

Loving Muslims Together exists because God’s love, demonstrated through Jesus Christ, is for Muslims. We function as local networks across Canada. We work to connect people and churches to opportunities, training and resources to help them build bridges to their Muslim neighbours, living out God’s love in word and deed.

No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion.
