Night 7 – VIDEO – Public Adhan Al Maghrib – Call to The Sunset Prayer – Omar Bin Khattab Mosque – Toronto Downtown Muslim Community – 234 Parliament Street, Regent Park

Omar Bin Khattab Mosque – Toronto Downtown Muslim Community, is at least the third Masjid in Toronto and perhaps the first in Downtown, to publicly broadcast The Call to Sunset Prayer, Adhan Al Maghrib, via loudspeaker.

Like every place of worship in Toronto, it’s doors closed due to the Pandemic Lockdown.

To peek behind those doors visit this 30 Masjids photoblog post from Day 9 of Ramadan 2015.

Unlike the Islamic Centre of Canada in Mississauga with its industrial park neighbours, Regent Park, the neighbourhood around this Downtown Toronto masjid, has thousands of Muslims living within earshot.

Earlier, I had asked City Councillor Paul Ainslie, who represents Ward 24 in East Scarborough, a question . . .

Now we know the answer, Alhumdulillah.

10 years ago, I was asking a different question, “Sister, do you own a farm ?”

Omar Bin Khattab Mosque was first visited on Day 16 of Ramadan 2011, the first year of 30 Masjids in 30 Days of Ramadan.

I still have a soft spot for this Masjid.
