Day 11 of 30 Canadian Masjids in 30 Days is a Travel Day.

Began by boarding MaritimeBus in Saint John, New Brunswick after Fajr, Dawn Prayers, and arriving by Asr, Late Afternoon Prayer time, in Québec City/Sainte-Foy.

Originally Day 10 was Fredericton overnight from Iftar until Fajr.

Giving a day here, taking a day there, all in keeping a flexible schedule of three days for and in each Canadian Province.

InshAllah.
