Ramadan is Here!

As you know the community in Halifax is following the global moon sighting. Since the moon was not sighted anywhere tonight, tomorrow is the 30th and last day of Shaban.

Taraweeh prayers start tomorrow, in sha Allah, Friday May 26 2017. Please check this website regularly for the Isha Prayer Time. We kindly request all the congregants, except for ones who need to use the elevators, to use the two entrances at the back of the Masjid. We also kindly request all congregants to leave the Masjid and its vicinity quietly after the prayers.

Insallah, Ummah Masjid will be hosting Iftar for singles and students on Mondays and Wednesdays during the month of Ramadan starting Monday, May 29, 2017. In addition, it will host community potluck Iftar on Fridays.
