Daily Iftars
Since 2002 Masjid Toronto has been providing complimentary iftar meals everyday during Ramadan for all and we are continuing this program this year.

Providing the iftar for a fasting person is one of the greatest deeds in the month of Ramadan. Donate generously and may Allah (swt) reward you in multiples. In addition, we will get a receipt for tax purpose. To sponsor one or more of these iftars, please contact:

Masjid Toronto 416-596-0507, Br. El-Tantawy Attia 647-241-5049, or e-mail

Taraweeh Prayers
The taraweeh Prayers will be 20 rakahs plus 3 rakahs for shaf’e and witr. It will be led by Br. Mohammad Abdi, Br. Ayman Elkasrawy and Br. Moustafa Shahwan who have memorized the Qur'an masha'Allah. For the last 10 days of Ramadan, there will also be 8 rakah tahajjud prayers, details will be provided later in the month insha'Allah.

Taraweeh prayers start right after the sunnah of the Isha prayer. Iqama times are updated at our website at

On weekends, there will be short lectures (reminders) after the first 4 rakahs of taraweeh. Also, once or twice a week, after the first 4 rakahs of taraweeh, there will be short fundraisers to support various needs in the GTA community and for worldwide relief organizations. All lectures and fundraising will be short and timely to ensure prayers do not go too late.

Zakat-ul-Fitr and Donations
Ramadan is the Month of Generosity. The Prophet (pbuh) was very generous and even more generous during Ramadan. Allah (swt) multiplies the rewards for good deeds in Ramadan more than any time of the year.

Masjid Toronto will be very pleased to accept your Donation, Sadaqa, and Zakat. In addition to Zakat-ul Mal (wealth), we also accept Zakat-ul-Fitr (Fitra). This year the Fitra is $7 per person in your household (whether they are fasting or not). Fitra should be paid before the Eid prayer (Salat-ul Eid). It is recommended that you pay Zakat-ul-Fitr as early as possible in the month of Ramadan so we can ensure it is distributed to the needy before the Eid prayer insha'Allah.

Eid Al-Fitr
Eid Al-Fitr will be on Sunday, Sept. 20, 2009. It will be held at the CNE insha'Allah. Details will be available at towards the end of Ramadan.

May Allah (swt) accept your prayers, fasting and all your good deeds in this blessed month of Ramadan.
