Night 7 – VIDEO – Public Adhan Al Maghrib – Call to The Sunset Prayer – Jame Masjid Mississauga – Islamic Propagation Centre of Ontario – 5761 Coopers Ave

Good afternoon,

On behalf of Mayor Crombie and City Council, and in the spirit of Ramadan, we are happy to announce that this morning Council unanimously voted to approve the external broadcast the Adhan or call to prayer during the month of Ramadan by mosques in the City of Mississauga.

Council supports the symbolic broadcasting of the Adhan for the duration of Ramadan at the time of sunset, as it will provide inspiration and comfort to our Canadian-Muslim residents of Mississauga.

City Council has agreed to suspend the noise by-law during the full period of Ramadan up to May 24, 2020.

Please note that the call to prayer can be broadcasted once daily for 5 minutes maximum.

You may begin your broadcast this evening on Wednesday, April 29, 2020.

We strongly encourage you to continue practicing and enforcing physical distancing measures.

If these measures are contravened, our officers will enforce.

Below is the approved resolution, effective immediately:

“That the enforcement of the Noise Control By-law 360-79, as amended, be suspended for the broadcasting of the evening call to prayer from local mosques and other non-residential buildings regularly used for worship, for the period of Ramadan in the year 2020 (up to May 24, 2020), provided the ‘call’ is broadcast only once per day for a maximum of 5 minutes and that it is not a call for people to physically gather in contravention of O.Reg. 52/20.”

We wish you a continued safe and healthy Ramadan Mubarak.

Best wishes,

Natasha on behalf of Mayor Crombie

Dear Subscriber, we are very happy to announce that the City of Mississauga has passed a motion permitting the calling of the Adhaan over the loudspeakers starting from today, please see announcement below.

In sha Allah we will be playing the Adhaan live over our external loudspeakers for Salaat al-Maghrib.
