SNMC Update on Masjid prayers

SNMC appreciates the community’s cooperation and understanding during the COVID-19 lockdown situation and working with the SNMC team to follow provincial and city guidelines.

In Sha Allah, effective from Tue 16th Feb 2021 Fajr prayers, we should be back to 30% capacity restrictions.  SNMC wants to remind the community to keep following all the guidelines and rules in place by city and province from time to time, like for example keeping 6 feet distance while congregating, wearing facemask all the time.

To enter SNMC masjid from Tue 16th Feb 2021 Fajr, you would still need the following

  1. Masjid Pass – get yours at
  2. Facemask
  3. Full size Prayer Mat
  4. Bag for shoes (to take inside with you, as needed)
  5. Wudu (no wudu facilities at SNMC)

To enable next session attendees be able to drive into parking lot and be able to come into Masjid, please leave prayer hall, as soon as your session has concluded. This will reduce traffic chaos for coming in and going out, In Sha Allah.

Prayer Schedule can be seen at

Please do not assemble OR pray in parking lot and follow SNMC team’s guidelines / directions all the time.

At the moment, the age limit is 12 and above, except on Week-ends (Sat Fajr to Sun Isha) which is 8 and above.

SNMC Management Update


SNMC community would like to thank Br. Muhammad Zulfiqar for serving the Barrhaven community as president since June 2019. During his tenure as president, we have seen enormous efforts for the new challenges we were faced with COVID-19 pandemic. His hard work and dedication have not gone unnoticed. Due to work & Family commitments, Br. Muhammad Zulfiqar has decided to leave his role as a president effective Mon 23-Nov-2020. We, however, are very pleased that Br. Muhammad Zulfiqar accepted to stay as board member while taking a break from presidential responsibilities. 

SNMC would like to congratulate Br. Wahed Ali Mohammed for accepting the role of SNMC President effective 23-Nov-2020.  

Br. Wahed has been serving SNMC as a volunteer since 2004, in various activities, like covering SNMC activities with photography / videography (, coordinating Jockvale musallah days school, coordinating then Imam’s schedule, managing social media / website etc to name few.    Br. Wahed joined SNMC Board in Jan 2020 and has played crucial role in structuring online streaming of SNMC sessions, that proved very crucial in March to June Covid-19 lock down periods for musallies to get in touch with SNMC for various religious activities.   ( 

Please join us in welcoming Br Wahed in his new role as the President.
