Muslim prayer recited at Toronto City Hall’s plaza

The Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) partners with the United Way Greater Toronto “to raise funding for anti-poverty initiatives to fight homelessness, social isolation, and hunger.”

On Friday September 20, 2019 both organizations held an “open community event” at Nathan Philips Square. The fundraising event included a Muslim Friday prayer at Toronto City Hall’s plaza. John Tory, Mayor of Toronto, Ahmed Hussen, Minister of immigration Daniel Zanotti, CEO and President of United Way of Greater Toronto, were in attendance.

The Muslim Friday prayer recited at Toronto City Hall’s plaza included the recitation of the first chapter of the Koran four times:

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

All praise is for Allah, the Sustainer of every creation

The Most Merciful and the Ever Merciful

Master of the Day of Compensation

It is only You who we worship and only You Who we seek assistance from

Guide us to the straight path

The path of those you bestowed favours upon, not those who have incurred [Your] wrath and those who have deviated

According to senior Canadian imams and scholars, “those who have incurred [Your] wrath” are the Jews, and “those who have deviated” are the Christians and people who behave like them.

On May 7, 2019 Toronto John Tory hosted an Iftar dinner (breaking the fast of Ramadan) in the Council Chambers with the attendance of Wael Shehab, the Imam of Masjid Toronto mosque, and Hamid Slimi, the Imam and founder of Sayeda Khadija Centre in Mississauga, Ontario.

An Imam chanted the adhan, the Muslim call to prayer:

Allah is the Greatest. (Recited four times)

I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah. (Recited twice)

I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. (Recited twice)

Come to Prayer. (Recited twice)

Come to success/salvation. (Recited twice)

Allah is the Greatest.(Recited twice)

There is none worthy of worship except Allah.
