CANADA | Day 30 – History of Vancouver’s First Masjid – Jamia Masjid – 655 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver British Columbia
On Day 30 of 30 Masjids CANADA, we conclude inside Jamia Masjid Vancouver at 655 West 8th Avenue in Downtown Vancouver, British Columbia.
This is British Columbia’s FIRST Masjid. It is Vancouver’s first and oldest Masjid.
Awaiting Salat Al-Asr, we met Mohammad Iqbal.
He was a student in 1968 and has witnessed the birth and growth of The BCMA – The British Columbia Muslim Association.
He was kind enough to share some of his memories growing up in Vancouver where this remains his Neighbourhood Masjid.
