In preparation for Ramadan, the MIA EC is organizing a series of educational lectures and workshops. Sheikh Hamid Slimi (click to view his wiki page)
a leading scholar of Islam in Canada and Chairman of the Canadian
Council of Imams has been invited to come to Winnipeg to conduct these
workshops. His tentative program will be as follows:
- Friday, July 06: Community lecture night at the Waverley mosque
- Saturday, July 07: A comprehensive Ramadan workshop
(everything you want to know: fiqh rules, spiritual aspects, preparing
for Ramadan, maximizing the benefits of Ramadan, Q & A etc).
More details will follow.
The month of Ramadan and Eid Al-Fitr are approaching us fast. Planning
and preparations for Ramadan are in high gears. The MIA EC is committed
to making this Ramadan highly rewarding in all aspects: spiritually,
educationally and socially.
We are soliciting suggestions from our community members on how to make this Ramadan and Eid more effective and efficient.
We are also seeking volunteers to help with organizing and facilitating
the Ramadan and Eid events. As well, if you are fully or mostly Hafiz
with good recitation, please let us know. Please contact Br. Osaed Khan
The interior painting of the Hazelwood mosque is almost complete. Soon
work will begin in the Waverley Grand Mosque gym/community centre to
patch and strengthen the walls, as well, painting of the sister’s
section will resume. We thank all of the volunteers for their help and
we apologize to the congregants for any inconvenience they might face
during this time.
