Assalamu Alaikum Halifax Muslim Community of Khair,


This year is the year of Al-Jama'a (unified community) and with a unified community comes the Rahmah (Mercy) of Allah Subhanah wa Ta'ala. The Prophet salla Allah alaihi wa sallam said: Al-Jama'a is Rahmah. In this blessed month of Ramadan 1436, Allah Ar-Raheem Ar-Raheem bestowed upon the Muslim community in Halifax blessing after another:


Nova Scotia Imams Council was formed and its first resolution was to unite the province in its fasting and Eid days. Its second resolution was to unite the Halifax/HRM Muslim community on their Eid prayer. We will all have a single and unified Eid prayer under one roof inshAllah.

The speaker, Shaikh Alaa ElSayed from Toronto's largest Masjid mentioned it was a unique scene to see Imams and leaders of other Masajid attend the fundraiser of another Masjid and support it. He said Halifax is set to provide a role model for Canadian Muslim communities

Please come to the fundraiser to help removing the harm from the way of people, that is an act of Iman, that is what the Beloved Prophet salla Allah alaih wa sallam said.


July 12 First-Ever Halifax Spirit of Ramadan Food Drive


Allah says:

وَيُطْعِمُونَ الطَّعَامَ عَلَى حُبِّهِ مِسْكِناً وَ أَسِيراً إنَّما نُطْعِمُكُمْ لِوَجْهِ اللهِ لا نُرِيدُ مِنْكُمْ جَزاءً وَلاَ شُكُوراًسورة الإنسان ، الآية 8(


And they give food in spite of love for it to the needy, the orphan, and the captive, [Saying], "We feed you only for the countenance of Allah . We wish not from you reward or gratitude. [Surah Insan:8]


InshAllah this Ramadan, our Muslim community will lead the initiative of the first HRM-wide Spirit of Ramadan Food Drive to alleviate hunger from the needy in our community. We are teaming up with Feed Nova Scotia, Bryony House, Metro Turning Point, Adsum House, Phoenix Youth Programs and Bayers Westwood Family Resource Centre to collect nonperishable food.


The recipients will be our fellow needy citizens irrespective of religion, race or gender. On July 12, we call upon you to all converge to MicMac Mall between 12pm and 5 pm to take your donated food in front of the Bay. You can also donate $20 for each food package. Donations of food and money can be done at any of Halifax Masajid but your presence on July 12 to make the donation at the mall is the best course of action. There will be treats and face painting for kids.


InshAllah, it will be a festive atmosphere of goodness and benevolence. In appreciation of MicMac mall hosting this event, we encourage members of the community to do their Eid and other shopping at the Mall and thank the mall administration and vendors for their noble initiative.


With your sincere and engaged involvement in this event we will show the true spirit of Ramadan and the true kindness and compassion of Canadian Muslims that is the complete opposite of the intolerance, extremism and ruthlessness of ISIS fanatics.


We have some logistical and printing expenses for this event and we welcome any donation.

Say, "In the bounty of Allah and in His mercy - in that let them rejoice; it is better than what they accumulate." [Yunus 10:58]


Let us thank Allah more by doing involving ourselves in more goodness  and He will give us more as He promised. He is the Most Generous.

The Good News of Ramadan 1436 AH

Dr. Abdelkader Tayebi

 Ramadan is here. It will start this Thursday June 18. Let's welcome it the Prophetic way!

Allah says  in the Quran (Baqarah 183-185):

O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous.

[Fasting for] a limited number of days. So whoever among you is ill or on a journey [during them] - then an equal number of days [are to be made up]. And upon those who are able [to fast, but with hardship] - a ransom [as substitute] of feeding a poor person [each day]. And whoever volunteers excess - it is better for him. But to fast is best for you, if you only knew.

The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.

Welcome Most Honored Guest

Tomorrow night, we are hosting a unique, generous and a honorable guest. A guest that visits us once a year and brings with it all sorts of goodness and happiness. A guest that brings with it the wide Mercy and Forgiveness of Allah. A guest that brings with it a smell of Paradise. A guest that makes the believer closer to Allah and His Paradise and away from Shaytan and Hell Fire. It is Ramadan, the month of the Qur'an, the month of Mercy, the month of Forgiveness, the month of prayer at night and Suhoor, the month of solidarity and mutual help, the month of all blessings. We are advised in our merciful religion of Islam to be kind and generous towards the guest, so what if the guest is the best of guests? we should exert ourselves in hospitality which is in this case kindness, compassion, good behavior and intense worship.

It is from the immense mercy of Allah upon us that He made us Muslims and believers and that He extended our lives till we reached this Ramadan. It is reported from our predecessors that they used to pray to Allah during the six months before Ramadan to extend their lives so that they can fast Ramadan, and in the 6 months after Ramadan they would ask Allah to accept their fasting of Ramadan. Therefore, we have to be thankful to Allah that He allowed us to witness this Ramadan, so let us please Him during this month.
