About

AsalamAlayKum, Peace and e-Greetings be Upon You!

30 Masjids (@30Masjids) began as HiMY SYeD‘s Journey around The Greater Toronto Area during the Muslim Holy Month of Ramadan in 2011 & 2012.

2013 was the third year for 30 Masjids in 30 Days in the GTA, but last year, Praise be to God-Alone, it was 30 Masjids in 30 Days around Ontario, Canada as we went around The Province.

2014 is back home in Toronto on a sort-of rest and catch-up year visiting a few stories we didn’t get to, but had wanted to. Also posting different kinds of stories, it’s all go with the flow this Ramadan!

Originally inspired by Aman Ali (@amanali) and Bassam Tariq (@curry_crayola)’s 2009 Ramadan trek around New York City. 2011 was their third year, and the second time, Aman and Bassam travelled to 30 states in 30 days during Ramadan. Please follow their Journey : 30mosques.com.

Ramadan is the month of fasting.

Muslims fast from dawn until sunset for 29 or 30 days depending on calculation and/or visual moonsighting. In 2011 the lunar month of Ramadan happened to correspond to the month of August. One solar year later, the lunar month began 11 days earlier on Thursday night, July 19 2012

There are hundreds of thousands of Muslims in The Greater Toronto Area, and over 100 masjids.

HiMY hoped to do this in Toronto in 2010, but was busy running for elected office during Ramadan 2010.

  1. Wonderful job brother, Mashallah.

  2. Salaam brother. Good job. I always had a desire to do what you are doing but at a bigger level, cataloging Muslim life in the GTA akin to what has been done in the Detroit area: http://biid.lsa.umich.edu/communities.html

    Let me know if you want to collaborate on something like that.

    • WalayKumSalam Brother Kashif,

      Your Bigger Level project?

      Let’s figure that out together after Eid, InshAllah.

      Now, how about starting on a smaller level first? :-)

      You can begin collaborating by submitting a Guest Blog Post here about any part of your Ramadan experience this year.

      How about it?

  3. Salams,

    I was at Masjidur Rahmah in Regent Park last night, then was reading your blog post this morning.

    I also came across this photo from 1954, showing the structure of the masjid. I thought it would be of interest to you.
