انا لله وانا اليه راجعون

~To Allah we belong, and unto Him is our return~

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our dear brother, Imam Raid Miqdadi, who passed away this morning in Hamilton.

Imam Raid was the Imam for Umar Masjid until his health no longer allowed him to serve our community.

Imam Raid was the son-in-law of Shaykh Arafat Elashi and the uncle of Sister Danah Elsayed (Imam Hosam’s wife).

Salatul Janaza will be held today, Thursday, June 9, 2016 after Dhuhr prayers (1:35 pm) at the Hamilton Mountain Mosque.

May Allah (SWT) grant our dear brother a place in Jannat-ul-Firdous and give his family strength and patience to get through this difficult time. ~Ameen~

Mountain Mosque Address:
1545 Stone Church Road East
Hamilton, ON L8W 3P8

30 Masjids visited Hamilton, Ontario during Ramadan 2013.

If you live in the Greater Golden Horseshoe area of Southern Ontario and are able to, please attend this Janaza / Funeral Prayer in Hamilton.

I’m currently in Halifax, Nova Scotia, otherwise I’d make an effort to attend myself.
