Commemorative Service

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Assalamu Alaikum.

It has been almost a year since our fellow Muslim Canadians have been attacked by a gunman while they were praying at their Quebec City mosque on January 29th, 2017. While this horrific attack took the lives of six innocent men, many members of the congregation got seriously injured with one of them remaining permanently paralyzed. This tragic incident left many families with irrevocable losses and life long traumas.

On January 29, 2018, the Muslim Association of Newfoundland and Labrador will be hosting a service to remember the victims of the Quebec City mosque shooting. The service will be held at our Mosque as per the following program. Members of our Muslim community and of the larger public are cordially invited to attend.

Jazakum Allahu Khairun
