Laughter echoes across the yard as students jump rope outside the Fort McMurray Islamic School in Canada. Like others flocking to the region, Muslims have taken advantage of the booming economy and established a community with several thousand members. Ebrahim Dhooma, principal of the school, says Muslims moved to the area from other parts of Canada and emigrated from all over the world—Sudan, Niger, Pakistan, and Malaysia. Many have taken jobs in mining or started their own businesses, and often their children are first-generation Canadians. "There is a sense of growth and potential in this town," Dhooma says. "With the building of new state-of-the-art facilities and the relative wealth of the area, optimism fills the air."

加拿大麦克默里堡伊斯兰学校的学生们在校外的庭院跳绳,笑声在上空回荡。同其他聚居区一样,穆斯林们从迅速发展的经济中获利,并建立了一个数千人的社区。这所学校的校长Ebrahim Dhooma说,穆斯林们从加拿大的其它地方,甚至全球——苏丹、尼日尔、巴基斯坦、马来西亚,移居到这里。大部分人已经在矿山找到工作或者自己创业,他们的的孩子一般都是出生在加拿大的第一代。“这个城镇的人们都感受到了发展和潜力,”Dhooma说,“伴随着高新科技设施的建设和这个地区体现出来的相对富裕,空气中充满了快乐。”
