It’s been a while since we last attended Salat Al Jumah at Sayeda Khadija Centre in Mississauga.

As Ramadan 2024 begins in about three weeks, my brother Amir decided we should go pray at S.K. Centre, like we often do during Ramadan.

Even with The Holy Month of Ramadan so close, and already a week into the month of Shaban, I still hadn’t gotten that Ramadan Feeling

…As we arrived, parked in the overflow parking closer to the Hurontario side, then began walking towards the west entrance, that Ramadan Feeling begin to stir within me, in ernest.

Alhumdulillah.

Near the entrance way, there is usually a small table with Sadaqa and Masjid Donation boxes.

Today I also noticed this see-through plastic box filled with Green Squares of felt fabric with golden safety pins.

These are of course from the Green Square Campaign to commemorate the victims of the shooting at the Grand Mosque of Quebec on January 29 2017.

January 29th each year is officially recognized as National Day of Remembrance of the Québec City Mosque Attack and Action against Islamophobia.

My brother Amir and I entered the main prayer hall early enough to easily choose from prayer spots in the third line from the front wall.

This third line becomes the second line behind where the Imam would be leading the Friday Prayer after delivering the Friday Sermon.

On very busy prayer days, the usually empty very front row to the left of the Imam allows for a small number of additional worshippers.

Above the Prayer Niche, or Mihrab, where the Imam leads the prayer, hangs this chandelier.

Because this chandelier is not necessarily turned on during every prayer, its brightness immediately captured my visual attention and imagination as I sat down in my prayer spot in the third row.

The floral blue of the Turkish Tiles is transformed.

Luminescent.

I quickly snapped this single image with my pocket-sized Nikon Coolpix which I often carry with me, then put the camera away, so not to disturb nor distract nearby worshippers.

Awaiting Adhan Al Jumah, while still appreciating the Lit Chandelier, Day 5 of Ramadan 2011 came to mind.

2011 was the inaugural year of this 30 Masjids in 30 Days of Ramadan project.

On Day 5, I wrote about the Islamic Design of the Water Fountain found in the basement of the TARIC Islamic Centre located in North York.

Alas, the TARIC Fountain wasn’t turned on, and perhaps still hasn’t in the decade plus change since I first blogged about it.

Today, The Chandelier above the Sayeda Khadija Centre Mihrab was turned on.

Alhumdulillah.

Adhan Al Jumah.

The Call to Friday Congregational Prayer, before the Friday Sermon.

Imam Abu Noman Tarek was today’s Khateeb.

Eid Al-Adha Prayer

Shaikh Ahmad Kutty

 

The Day of Arafat – 9th Day of Dhul-Hijjah 1444 – Tuesday June 27 2023

Iftar – Breaking Fast with Majhūl Dates..!


 

Maghrib Sunset Time arrives in Toronto Metropolitan Area

On The Day of Arafah,

9th of Dhul Hijjah 1444,

And I can finally bite into my THIRD Majhūl Date of the day!

But I was Fasting,

So how can this be my “Third” Majhūl Date?

Because this morning before Fajr,

I already had not One,

but TWO Majhūl Dates

For Sahoor.

I intended on only having ONE,

But these are more addictive than potato chips,

And I had to have TWO,

I could not stop at One.

And then…

Just like that it was Fajr time,

and I couldn’t have Three Majhūl Dates for Sahoor even if I wanted to,

And I wanted to,

I simply had to wait for Sunset to arrive on one of the longest days of the year in the northern hemisphere at this latitude.

So,

The entire Day of Arafah,

I kept looking forward to breaking my Fast with another Majhūl Date.

As ~9:05 p.m. EDT approached,

I dialled up MeemTV’s IPTV channel as they usually livestream Adhan Al Maghrib according to Toronto Local Time,

Theirs is the Adhan you hear in the background of this video.

Alhumdulillah,

Majhūl Date with coconut shavings and tasty filling with a glass of Rooh Afzah made with milk was my Iftar for and on this Day of Arafah 1444 Fast.

Majhūl Dates:

“Love at First Bite,”

No kidding,

Alhumdulillah.

CONDOLENCES

Who, when calamity strikes them, say:

“Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return”

Our Condolences to the Family of Brothers Shahzada and Suleman Dawood

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

It is with deep sadness that we announce the deaths of Brother Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman Dawood in the recent Titan submersible tragedy.

Please join us for the funeral Prayer TOMORROW,

Sunday June 25, 2023,

after Zuhr prayer at 1:15 p.m. at the Masjid al-Noor at 430 Logy Bay Road, St. John’s,

Janaza in absentia.

On Behalf of the Community and the Muslim Association of Newfoundland and Labrador,

we ask Allah (SWT) to give patience to the family of the deceased.

We ask Allah (SWT) to forgive and to have mercy upon the deceased souls,

to make their reception honourable,

and to admit the deceased into His Jannah.

Ameen!

Brother Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman Dawood

Brother Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman Dawood

Prayer Hall, Masjid al-Noor, 430 Logy Bay Road, St. John’s, NL.

The new moon was sighted . . .

Today, Monday June 19 2023 is the 1st of Dhul Hijjah 1444.

The Day of Arafah is Tuesday June 27 2023.

Eid Al-Adhā will be on Wednesday June 28 2023.

InshAllah,

Similar to my earlier listing of Eid Al Fitr Prayer Locations,

I’ll keep updating this page with larger Eid Prayer locations as I find them.

You can help by adding missing Eid Al-Adhā prayer location information as a comment to this post.

FINAL UPDATE on MONDAY JUNE 26 2023 at 7:42 p.m.:

I’ve been pulling together the Eid Al Adha Prayer Times & Locations for Canadian Cities that I can find,

And it’s been harder than before, perhaps ever, in trying to easily find all the details.

IF you have been trying to find YOUR eventual Eid Prayer Location, you may understand what I mean.

There are a few more locations I know of, but if I don’t stop adding new ones now, I might still be typing on Wednesday Morning (!).

So the following as it is is now my officially completed Eid Al Adha Prayer Times & Locations list.

InshAllah, for some of you out there who may end up praying Eid Al-Adha at a location you found below, please remember me, Brother HiMY, in your Duas on Yowm-Al-Arafah and on Eid Day.

Please share this URL and pass on this List’s Information with those who need it!

Ameen.

After praying Maghrib in Brampton, Ontario,

I went searching for the Crescent Moon of Dhul-Hijjah 1444.

Yesterday night, Sunday June 18 2023, The Hilal Council of Canada had [already] accepted a Positive Moonsighting Report from Texas.

Tonight, Monday June 19 2023, We had Hazy and Partly Cloudy sky above the Toronto Metropolitan Area.

I looked and searched through the haze for about ten minutes.

Alhumdulillah I finally saw the Crescent in-between the clouds.

This is the best photo from the ones I took this evening.

Thickness of the Crescent strongly suggests it is a one day old Crescent Moon.

 

This is a Positive Moonsighting Report from Brampton, Ontario, on Monday Evening, June 19 2023.

Eid Al-Adha Mubarak to all.

Salam,

HiMY SYeD

Shaykh Yahya Rhodus was today’s Guest Khateeb, Visiting Friday Sermon Lecturer, for the first Jumah Qhutbah at Sayeda Khadija Centre in Mississauga.

He helped us understand The Sunnah of Decision Making.

My brother Amir and I were in attendance and heard it in person.

It was such important information,

I wanted to watch and listen to it at least twice more,

so I’m embedding the video :

InshAllah, I resolve to add some notes summarizing The Sunnah of Decision Making to this blog post later…

“An energy filled Jane’s Walk with this group;

“And Brother HiMY sharing his deep insights about roots of Muslim community in the City of Toronto and the need to combat Islamophobia and other forms of racism got me through today’s moody weather.

“The white building behind us was the Dundas Street Masjid.”

Suhail Hashim

“Tarek Fatah has left a controversial and divisive legacy.

He was a polarizing personality in his life,

And now also in his death.

In this video,

We do a sample survey of Fatah’s stances on various issues that pertained to the Muslim community in Canada, India, and around the world.”
