As-Salaamu `Alaykum our dear Family,
The Great and Blessed Month of Ramadan has arrived onto a world going through unprecedented changes and adaptations.
In this time when the immeasurable strength and solidarity of the Muslim Ummah is Examined, the Islamic Forum of Canada would like to wish you Ramadan Mubarak, from Our Family to yours. We know that this year’s Ramadan will have the additional challenge of self-isolation, something that is the complete opposite of the spirit of Ramadan and Eid. But we will persist, together.
Sayyiduna Rasulullah SAWS said, “Verily, the Believers are like a structure, each part strengthening the other,” [and the Prophet SAWS clasped his fingers together] (Bukhari)
The Islamic Forum of Canada will continue to do our part in keeping us unified and connected as a warm family. We will be providing livestreams of Taraweeh every night for the Holy month of Ramadan. You can stream Taraweeh from any device and can pray with us in your home. This nightly livestream will begin at 7pm every night, and will also include Ifṭār, Maghrib, Isha, and then finally Taraweeh.
Based on International Moon Sighting Criteria, the Islamic Forum has made the following decision:
Thursday Night – April 23rd – 2020
First Day of Ramadan and Fasting:

This time has proven to be challenging for our Masjid to subsist, especially with a loss of our foundational donation stream from every Friday Jummu’ah. We are asking that you help us keep the lights on for our Masjid during this time of great strife so that we can continue to serve you and others like you. Thank you for taking the time to read our appeal.
