This ten minute podcast was recorded sitting in Masjid Al Salaam’s Noble Courtyard, essentially a public square inside this Islamic Centre, hence the many ambient voices in the background.

 

Sharif Senbel is a Vancouver based Snowboarder, Windsurfer and Walk-The-Walk Eco-Activist.

Devout Muslim. Award Winning Architect. Sharif Senbel designs Ecological Masjids.

Including Prince George Islamic Centre where I was yesterday and this morning for Day 26 and Night 27 of Ramadan 2016.

Alhumdulillah, for second night in a row, I broke fast inside a Senbel designed building, Masjid Al Salaam & Education Centre, 5060 Canada Way in Burnaby, British Columbia.


We were introduced to one another shortly before Adhan Al-Isha by Burnaby Imam, Yahya Momla.

Architectural photos below nicely complement what Sharif Senbel’s shares with us in the podcast, they were captured yesterday in Prince George, when I had no idea I would be speaking with the Architect in person tonight… SubhanAllah!
