Iftar 2020 cancelled

Ottawa
March 30, 2020

Dear Brothers, Sisters and Children in Islam,  

After careful evaluation of the current and evolving situation related to COVID-19 that is beyond our control. the MFGO Coordination Committee with great deal of disappointment has decided to cancel its traditional and highly popular “Pot-Luck” Iftar Mahfil for the year 2020 scheduled for Sunday the 26th of April.

As you know at this time everyone’s safety and wellbeing is the number one priority and coupled with this we are now observing “state of emergency” and also are supposed to maintain social distance and refrain from any sorts of social gathering. These all are the contributing factors for our decision to cancel this year’s Iftar Mahfil.

We wish and pray may Allah swt. keep you, your family, your beloved ones and the entire human race safe and healthy from this calamity. Let us all observe our personal and community safety and follow the guidance provided by the Heath care Authority.

May Allah swt. help us and give us the patience to overcome this calamity and provide us the Iman and strength to observe the upcoming fasting season the Ramadan to His full satisfaction, Ameen.

May Allah bless us all.

Sincerely,

MFGO Coordination Committee
