All-Candidates Forum

30 Sep

Assalamualaikum Brothers and Sisters,

The upcoming federal election provides an opportunity for Canadians to exercise our right to elect an individual who will be best suited to represent the values and beliefs which are dear to us all.

In the last federal election (2011), the Muslim Association of Newfoundland and Labrador (MANAL) invited the candidates who were respectively nominated to represent St. John’s East by the Conservative Party, the New Democratic Party (NDP), the Green Party, and the Liberal Party, to visit our mosque and provide a synopsis of their party platforms. The evening session was quite informative to our members who also had the opportunity to share their comments and concerns with the candidates.

In keeping with the same tradition, MANAL has again invited the candidates of St. John's East representing all four federal parties in the upcoming federal election. We believe that such sessions will not only be of benefit to our membership, but may also inform the parties in the development of policies and programs on issues which are important to many of us in the community (such as citizenship and immigration, labour market integration and retention of newcomers, and education).

Each candidate will have ten minutes to present their respective platforms followed by a question and answer session in which we can all participate.

MANAL requests all members of the community to attend and fully participate in this event. This is an opportunity for us to show our united strength.

Venue: Masjid-al-Noor
Date: Saturday, October 3, 2015
Time: 7.15pm
Please be at the mosque no later than 700pm as the event will start at 715pm sharp.

Eid-al-Adha Prayer

14 Sep

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Assalamu Alaikum,

As we are approaching Dhul-Hijjah, we would like to inform you about the arrangements we are undertaking to help our community to have a peaceful and pleasant Eid-al-Adha.

- The first day of Eid will Insha'Allah be Thursday, September 24th.

- We will have the Eid prayer at the indoor field turf facility of Techniplex, located at 39 Churchill Ave, Pleasantville, St. John’s. Since this facility is big enough to accommodate our Muslim community, we will have ONLY ONE Eid prayer and this will be at 8 AM on Thursday. (Please note that there will be NO Eid prayer at the mosque).

- A map of the Techniplex is included at the link below:

- We anticipate the parking space outside Techniplex to be enough to accommodate the cars of our community members. Yet, we kindly request you to follow the instructions of MANAL volunteers on site if and when parking space is not immediately available.

- Please note that food is not allowed in that facility. Therefore, we will NOT serve any breakfast or refreshments after the prayer.

- We kindly request you to supervise your children and to not leave any litter or personal belongings at the facility. Also, due to other scheduled activities, we are required to leave the building shortly after the prayer.

Taking this opportunity, we would like to wish our community and all the Muslims around the world a peaceful and blessed Eid al Adha.

Jazakum Allahu Khairun,
MANAL Executive Committee
