Andrea Horwath – GTA Eid – Metro Toronto Convention Centre, South Hall

 

The Leader of the Opposition was a no show, yet the Leader of the Third Party in the Ontario Legislature is here today.

This is her third time attending GTA Eid Celebrations.

Andrea Horwath, Leader of Ontario New Democratic Party, was kind enough to answer my question about the upcoming Ontario Provincial Election and to personally share Eid Greetings.

She may well become The Premier of Ontario, one day.

Jenny’s Asr Prayers in English

It was seeing Jenny’s commitment in her five daily prayers, not letting her lack of Arabic Language stop her from praying, that sparked Omar’s heart.

We all have to start somewhere.

Jenny is learning Arabic with Omar’s help, and will gradually begin reciting all her prayers with verses of the Qur’an in Arabic.

God-Alone Willing.

InshAllah.

Omar and Jenny are standing in Trinity-Bellwoods Farmers’ Market.

It’s Tuesday, Asr time. Time for their weekly grocery shopping trip. They are gathering organic ingredients for tonight’s Iftar.

They’ve invited me to break fast with them and stay for Iftar Dinner.

It will be the first home cooked meal, and the first time during this 30 Masjids journey around town,  I won’t be inside a Greater Toronto Area masjid for Maghrib.

Day 25 – Qiyam ul Layl – Islamic Information & Dawah Centre

 

 

 

Day 25 – Masjid al Taqwa – 14 Ladysmith Avenue

 

 

Day 14 of Ramadan turned out to be the one where I broke fast in my neighbourhood masjid, the Islamic Information and Dawah Centre International, founded by Brother Shabbir Ally.

This is where I began the 30 Masjids journey on Day 0.

This would be my pit stop before continuing 30 Masjids into the second half of Ramadan…

Salaamu Alaykum!

I am delighted to have the chance to contribute to Brother Syed’s Ramadan project. I’ve learned of his initiative through another blog run by two friends who are also doing the same project that Brother Syed is doing.

Since the two friends decided to steer their project in a controversial path I decided to have nothing to do with their blog.

So now I am following Brother Syed’s Ramadan project. Furthermore, I learned that the Brotha allows his guests to contribute to his project.

Realizing that, I decided why don’t I visit my local mosque and take pictures and videos.

So that’s what I’ve done.
