SNMC Spiritual: Friday Prayer (Jumah Salah) and Parking Issues

Friday Prayer (Jumah Salah) and Parking Issues

In highlighting the importance of Friday (Juma), Allah SWT revealed a surah in the Quran, al-Jumu’ah, the day of Gathering. He shortened 4 Rakah Zuhr salah to 2 Rakah on Friday.

Listening to Jumah Khutbah is part of the prayer. Also, when a person enters for Jumah salah, an angel puts his/her name in a registered book, but as soon as Khateeb starts khutbah, they close the book and start listening.

The City of Ottawa By-Law Officers visited SNMC to educate the congregation on how to park properly around the SNMC masjid on Friday last week. They also issued warning tickets during the last two Fridays. The officers will start issuing parking tickets for offenses violating parking bylaws starting Friday.

Please let us plan for Jumah early and do not get our good deeds reduced by parking improperly in front of neighbours’ homes or on roadsides blocking driveways. Let’s show members of our community that Muslims are polite and courteous.
