Bicycles in Islam – Makkah, Madinah and Toronto

All over the world Muslims ride bicycles in their daily lives for worldly reasons as well as for religious reasons like reaching distant Masjids. The first three Madinah photographs are from Cape Town residents Nathim Cairncross and Imtiyaz Ahmad Haron who spent nine months in 2010 biking across Africa to reach Makkah and perform the Hajj. The remaining Makkah and Madinah bicycle photographs were taken during my Umrah trip in May and June of 2011. Currently during Ramadan 2012, I am visiting 30 Masjids in 30 Days in the Greater Toronto Area. On Day 13, Wednesday August 1 2012, sometime before sunrise, my bicycle was stolen from in front of Masjid Toronto. The media got wind of this and it made the news. Canadian Tire stepped up and offered to replace the stolen bicycle with a new one. During Umrah last year, I captured as many bicycle photographs as possible hoping to publish them once I got home. Please forgive the quality of many of the photos, they were taken with my Blackberry. — HiMY SYeD (64 photos total).
