Farewell Ramadân, Hope to See You Again Next Year!

With a mixture of both sadness and joy, for those that don’t know already, I’d like to let you know that the religious authorities from a number of different Muslim countries have announced that the crescent of Shawwâl was seen this evening (October 11, 2007); among them: Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, and Bahrain.

Thus, in following the Prophetic statement, «Fast when you see the crescent; if it is obscured to you, then complete thirty days of Sha’bân. Break your fast when you see the crescent; if it is obscured to you then fast thirty days,» today was our last day of the fast and ‘Îd will be tomorrow (Friday, October 12, 2007).

We will be holding the ‘Îd prayer tomorrow morning @ 10am (that means be there at 9:30am, folks!!!) at the Radisson Hotel Toronto East located at 55 Hallcrown Place (Victoria Park Ave. & Consumers Rd.).
