Masjid Toronto condemns all forms of hate

Monday, February 20th, 2017


It has come to our attention that an inappropriate supplication that was offensive to those of Jewish faith, was made in our downtown mosque, Masjid Toronto. Such language is unacceptable and against the values and practices of the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), Masjid Toronto and the Muslim Community at large. Masjid Toronto condemns all forms of hate and racism towards any faith group or others and is committed to offering a safe spiritual space for all congregants.

“No Canadian should feel intimidated when walking into their synagogue, church, temple or mosque. We are thankful to our fellow Canadians who joined with us today against this attack on religious freedom and Canadian values.

The safety and security of our worshippers is paramount. We thank Toronto Police Services for their on-going support and their swift attention.

We also thank our fellow Torontonians and Canadians who have expressed their support.”

Salatul Al-Khusuf at Masjid Toronto this coming Sunday

Saturday, September 26th, 2015


Praying Salat Al-Khusuf when there is a lunar eclipse is a confirmed Sunnah.


The eclipse will start Sunday 8:11 PM and will continue until after midnight. At Masjid Toronto we will be praying Salat Al-Khusuf right after Isha prayer.


Detailed Description of the Prayer

1. There is no Adhan or Iqamah for the Prayer, although the Prayer can be announced by calling, “As-Salatu Jami`ah” (“The congregation is gathering for Prayer”).

2. The imam begins the Prayer with takbir, as usual, followed by recitation ofSurat Al-Fatihah and one or more further surahs. The recitation can be loud (majority view) or silent.

3. The imam does ruku` with takbir, as usual.

4. The imam rises from ruku` saying “Sami` Allahu liman hamidah,” followed by the usual dhikr.

5. Remaining in the standing posture, the imam again recites Surat Al-Fatihahand one or more other surahs.

6. The imam goes into ruku` with takbir.

7. The imam rises from ruku` saying “Sami` Allahu liman hamidah,” followed by the usual dhikr.

8. The imam performs the two prostrations as usual, except that the prostrations should be lengthy, as should be the sitting between them.

9. The imam rises for the second rak`ah, which is performed in the same manner as the first.

10. Hence there are a total of four of each of the following: standing straight (with recitation), bowing down, and prostrating. The sunnah is for each standing straight, bowing down, and prostration to be shorter than the previous one.

Imam Dr. Wael Shehab will be giving a small reminder and making du’a after the prayer.


We hope that you would join us for this occasion.
