Day 10 – Drive-Thru Iftar – Sayeda Khadija Centre – Faith of Life Network – Mississauga, Ontario


I already blogged about This Drive-Thru Iftar at Sayeda Khadija Centre in Mississauga last Sunday, Day 3 of Ramadan 2020.

With the Pandemic Lockdown, all masjids are closed to the public.

Only masjid staff are allowed inside the building.

Last Sunday was my only physical visit to any masjid in person this Ramadan 2020.

Visiting and blogging, youtubing, documenting Masjids in Ramadan is the whole point of this 30 Masjids in 30 Days of Ramadan project.

And yesterday,

Saturday Day 9 of Ramadan 2020 was only my second in-person visit to a masjid, and that too was a Drive-Thru Iftar Pick up at Islamic Centre of Canada, ISNA Mississauga.

I miss going to the Masjids in Ramadan.

Any Masjid !

Any opportunity to visit a masjid, while still keeping physical distancing, is an opportunity not to skip.

This was the first time I have seen Imam Dr. Hamid Slimi in person since March 13 2020.

March 13 was the Final Congregation Friday Prayer inside Sayeda Khadija Centre Before the Pandemic Lockdown.


Through our car window, it was nice to exchange greetings and a few words in person with the Imam, during the Drive-Thru Iftar Pick up.

Everything else was pretty much the same as last Sunday’s Drive-Thru Iftar Pick Up,

See Day 3 if you want to learn more.

Once home,

To complete our Sayeda Khadija Centre experience for Day 10, we tuned into Imam Dr. Hamid Slimi’s near nightly Pre-Iftar Lecture Livestream.

Dr. Slimi mentioned tonight’s Drive-Thru Iftar near the end of tonight’s Pre-Iftar Lecture.

The Call to Prayer.

Adhan Al Maghrib.

We broke the Fast,

Ate our Drive-Thru Iftars at home.

Praying Salat Al Maghrib,

The Prayer after Sunset,

In-between both.
