Eid Prayer at 8 am on May 2nd at Techniplex

In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Assalamu’ Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

It is with a heavy heart that we see the passing of Ramadan, the month of spiritual uplift, mercy and endless blessings, but at the same time we are grateful to Allah (SWT) for enabling us to experience this Ramadan through in-person congregational prayers and hope to experience many more Ramadans in the future.

We would like to share important information with our community as part of Eid celebrations.

For those who have not yet paid, Zakatul Fitr is $20 per person and must be paid BEFORE the Eid prayer. You can pay your Zakatul Fitr through the donation boxes located at the mosque or through a member of the MANAL Executive Committee.

Ramadan is a month during which all good deeds, and especially charity, are rewarded more than other times of the year. We encourage all our brothers and sisters to donate generously to the MANAL Fundraising Drive to build a new Islamic Centre in Torbay.  This will be our legacy and gift to future Muslim generations in this province. The construction of the Islamic Centre must begin as soon as possible as per permit requirements obtained by MANAL from the Town of Torbay and Service NL.

Please make sure that your donation to the Islamic Centre project is over and above the annual donation to support the operation of Masjid Al-Noor at 430 Logy Bay Road. Through your donations, you will Insha'Allah leave an ever lasting legacy which will benefit you and your families both in this world and in the hereafter. Allah (SWT) says in the Holy Quran:

لَن تَنَالُواْ الْبِرَّ حَتَّى تُنفِقُواْ مِمَّا تُحِبُّونَ وَمَا تُنفِقُواْ مِن شَيْءٍ فَإِنَّ اللّهَ بِهِ عَلِيمٌ (3:92)

[But as for you, O believers,] never shall you attain to true piety unless you spend on others out of what you cherish yourselves; and whatever you spend - verily, God has full knowledge thereof.

The first day of Eid will Insha'Allah be Monday May 2nd.

There will be only one Eid prayer and it will be held at 8.00 AM on Monday (May 2nd) at the Techniplex (39 Churchill Avenue, Pleasantville, St. John’s). Please see this map for the location and driving directions. Please note that there will be no Eid prayer at the Mosque.

When you come to the Techniplex for the Eid prayer, please make sure that you bring your own prayer mat and park in the designated parking area only. It is very important that all attendees to the EID prayer adhere to the following measures:

1. Bring NLVaxPass as proof of vaccination.

2. Wear a mask at all times covering nose and mouth.

3. Make wudu at home.

4. Bring own mussala (prayer mat) to prayer.

Taking this opportunity, MANAL would like to thank all the volunteers who help us maintain the Mosque and manage MANAL’s operational activities throughout the year and especially during the holy month of Ramadan.

May Allah (SWT) bless our community and the whole Muslim ummah with a happy and peaceful Eid.

Eid Mubarak

Jazakum Allahu Khairun,

MANAL Executive Committee

Remembering January 29

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Assalamu Alaikum.

It has been almost five years since a gunman entered the Centre Culturel Islamique in Quebec City and opened fire on the congregation who was gathered there for the Isha prayer. This horrific attack took the lives of six Muslim men and gravely injured many others. It also left many widows, orphans and survivors with irrevocable losses and lifelong trauma.

Last year, the Government of Canada made January 29 National Day of Remembrance of the Quebec City Mosque Attack and Action Against Islamophobia, to honor the victims and express solidarity with survivors.

Due to ongoing COVID restrictions and public health risks, MANAL will unfortunately not be able to have an in person program at our mosque to commemorate the fifth anniversary of this tragedy.

However, we have prepared a virtual program to be aired from MANAL's website at 7 pm on Saturday, January 29, 2022. Everyone is welcome to stream the program from the link below.


The agenda for the virtual program is as follows:

Day : Saturday, January 29, 2022

Time : 7:00 pm – 7:30 pm


  1. Welcome Greetings & Introductions (Mr. Kamrul Islam, MANAL Secretary)

  2. Quranic Recitation (Mr. Abdulhaqq Ibrahim, Volunteer Imam)

  3. Video Address (Dr. Mansoor Pirzada, MANAL President)

  4. Video Address (Hon. Gerry Byrne, Minister, NL Government)

  5. Video Address (Ms. Sheilagh O'Leary, Deputy Mayor, City of St. John’s)

  6. Video Address (Dr. Jennifer Selby, Co-Lead, Addressing Islamophobia NL)

  7. Bios of the Victims (Dr. Ayse Akinturk, MANAL Executive)

  8. Prayer for the Victims (Mr. Abdulhaqq Ibrahim, Volunteer Imam)

  9. Concluding the Program (Mr. Kamrul Islam, MANAL Secretary)

We also encourage you to join a nationwide campaign which involves publicly wearing green squares to express solidarity with the families of the victims and the survivors of this terrible act of Islamophobic violence. You can easily home make your own 2" x 2" square using solid green felt (or any other solid green material) and then attach it to your jacket / coat with a safety pin.

Jazakumullahu Khairan.

MANAL Executive Committee
