AsalamAlayKum, Peace and e-Greetings be Upon You!
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 was 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 posted different kinds of stories, it was all go with the flow!
2015 finds me, HiMY, in Toronto yet still with the 30 Masjids itch to scratch…
2015: There are Masjids and Islamic Centres I never did get around to writing about; people I had wished to interview; a lot more for the “30 More” section; and maybe a road trip or two to a distant Muslim Community to see how they do Ramadan. That in short, should be 30 Masjids this Ramadan 2015. …InshAllah!
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.
