Adhan Al Jumah Friday Call to Prayer Noor E Islam Madressah Windsor - Friday July 19 2013

It is incredibly hot right now across South Western Ontario, not quite unbearable, but up there.

Instead of opting for the city’s main masjid, the Windsor Islamic Association, I walked the very few blocks from where I am staying to Noor E Islam for today’s Friday Prayers.

Noor-e-Islam Madressah and Cultural Centre 747 Lincoln Road Windsor Monday July 15 2013

After arriving in Windsor on Via Rail from Chatham, I walked to Noor-e-Islam Madressah and Cultural Centre at 747 Lincoln Road in the Walkerville neighbourhood.

Fajr at Bosnian Canadian Islamic Centre 41 Holborn Avenue, London - Saturday July 13 2012

Before leaving London for Chatham, there was one Masjid I had yet to visit.

The Bosnian Canadian Islamic Centre is located at 41 Holborn Avenue.

I gather many people just call it the Holborn Mosque, which is also how to find it on the internet: HolbornMosque.com.

London Muslim Mosque sisters prayer space carpet point of view photo by Aksa Mahmood for 30 Masjids Friday July 12 2012

By Aksa Mahmood, London

The London Muslim Mosque located in London, Ontario was founded in 1955. As one of the oldest Mosques nationwide, it has provided a spiritual place to many Londoners over the years.

Being the fourth generation of my family to attend the London Muslim Mosque, I remember the spirit of my Great-Grandfather and his involvement with and also love for this community.
