President’s Message

Dear SNMC family,

I miss you all. In fact, the masjid misses you and of course you miss the masjid as well. May Allah make it easy for all of humanity.

It has been about 5 weeks since we last prayed at our masjid. Inshallah our current situation will improve and we’ll be able to return to the masjid soon. For now, it is a test from Allah (SWT). Though we may miss some of the blessings, the most important one is going to the masjid and praying in congregation. However, Allah (SWT) still loves us and Allah has still blessed us with his countless blessings. 

Even though we can’t visit each other nor the masjid, we can still keep in touch. We have a variety of communication channels that we can use to reach out to the masjid and one another. This is the time where we come closer to our families, companions and re-establish a firm connection with Allah (SWT). Let us try to use this time to make dua and ask for repentance.

Our two imams are working hard every day to reach out to the community through video messages to uplift the spirituality of the community. Also, Ramadan is coming up and inshallah our imams will share an overview of the programs to come during the blessed month. In addition to our imams, other respected leaders of the community will also use the SNMC platform to share their spiritual messages with the community.

Please reach out to SNMC for feedback about our current activities, and anything else you’d like to suggest in terms of content and/or schedule. We’ll adjust the programs based on the needs and feedback of the community. If you or anyone you know needs help with anything please contact SNMC, myself or the imams. Inshallah, SNMC will use its resources to help as much as possible.

Who takes vain desire as God??

Have you seen who has taken as god his  own  vain desires?

 The Almight has, knowing (him as such), sent him astray, and sealed his hearing and his heart (and understanding), and put a cover on his sight.

Who, then, will guide him after the Almighty (has withdrawn guidance)? 

Will you  not then receive reminder? (45.23)

Calamity and Charity, Emdad Khan

We wonder what’s happenings around us. The invisible micro virus is currently controlling our day to day life all over the world. All the mighty military, politicians, technologists, scientists, engineers, physicians look like they are unable to do something except encourage others to stay locked down at home, maintaining self-isolation and maintain social distance.

Allah (SWT) may test some of us with calamities, even when it is hard and may test some other people with blessings. Many tragic events that happen in our life comes as tests from the Almighty, but difficult to explain. But Allah (SWT) states in the Qur’an:

“Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits of your toil but give glad tidings to those who are patient.”

Surah Al-Baqarah, Verse 155

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ  says in a hadith:

“How wonderful is the affair of the believer, for his affairs are all good, and this applies to no one but the believer. If something good happens to him, he is thankful for it and that is good for him. If something bad happens to him, he bears it with patience and that is good for him.”

(Sahih Muslim, 2999).

If not for the trials of this world, we could become arrogant, self-boasting and it will to our doom in this world and in the Hereafter.

By panicking, the calamity does not go away, it makes things worse. Being patient and striving sincerely to overcome the challenges is rewarded by Allah (SWT) that is enough for us and many times greater. The Most Wise and the Most Merciful, Allah (SWT) did not send this calamity in order to destroy us, rather He is checking on us, testing our patience, acceptance, and faith.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ says in another hadith:

“Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.” (Tirmidhi). He added that: “Sadaqa extinguishes sins as water extinguishes fire. Sadaqa appeases Allah’s anger and averts evil. And even a smile in your brother’s face is sadaqa.”

The Almighty has guaranteed about our provision, under all circumstances. Even in calamity/crisis, every human being will get the provisions, simply trying in an ethical way and having faith and trust in Allah (SWT).

“Do they not know that Allah extends the provision for whom He wills, and restricts it? Indeed, in this are signs for who have Faith!”

Surah Az-Zumar, Verse 52

The sender of the calamity has also given us a process for our rectification.

Allah (SWT) commands:”

” …therefore Read as much of the Quran as may be easy for you, Establish regular Prayer and give regular Charity; And Loan to Allah, a beautiful Loan, and whatever you send forth for yourself, you will find it with Allah. Yes, Better and Greater in reward, and seek His Forgiveness, as He is Forgiver and Most Merciful”.

Surah Al-Muzzammil, Verse 20

In the new emerging world order, by the will of Allah (SWT) we will strive to be good to family, community, country and will be more kind, humble and caring.

As calamity can not pass over charity, let us be more generous to the elderly, parents, needy, orphans, neighbours, strangers, and captives.

Fundraising update / Watch br. Daoud’s story / Sign up for last 10 days auto deductions

Assalamu alaikum warahmatullah,

Here we are, we’ve finished the first half of Ramadan and are quickly approaching the last 10 days. And before we know it, Ramadan will have passed behind us. May Allah SWT make us all among its winners.

Alhamdulillah, we are making good progress with our Ramadan fundraising. More than $40K has been donated so far. We really hope that we raise enough funds in Ramadan so that we don’t have to ask our community again for donations for the rest of the year, insha’a Allah. Please continue making dua’a for SNMC and for the whole community and ummah.

I am excited to share with you the first of a series of videos we plan to share in the coming days on ‘Stories from the SNMC Community’. These are real stories from our community that we hope will be an inspiration to others. 

If you have a story that you’d like to be featured in our series, please email us at info@snmc.ca. In particular, we are looking for a:

– Reversion story and how perhaps SNMC may have played a role in it

– Becoming a better Muslim story and how perhaps SNMC may have played a role in it

– Marriage story that may have been facilitated through SNMC’s marriage services

– Filling in the void of a senior member of our community through SNMC’s senior programming

– Parent of a child who memorized all or part of the Quran at SNMC

Lastly, in support of SNMC’s Ramadan campaign, I would like to invite you to sign up for auto deductions in the last 10 days of Ramadan. This is an initiative to help you, insha’a Allah, realize the reward of Laylat-ul-Qadr by automating your donation every night in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Deductions can be made from either a credit card or directly from a bank account and would insha’a Allah occur nightly starting on Wednesday May 13th until Friday May 22nd.

Sign up from now for daily auto deductions in the last 10 nights of Ramadan at www.snmc.ca/last10nights.

As usual, donations can be made online at www.snmc.ca, via e-transfer to info@snmc.ca, and in person (cash and cheques) from Mondays to Thursdays between 11am and 2pm and Fridays to Sundays between 2pm to 6pm (during Ramadan only) at SNMC (3020 Woodroffe Ave.)
