Dear sisters, brothers, and children in Islam:

As Salamu-Alaikum-wa-Rahmatullahe-wa-Barakatehu. As you know that due to extremes of conditions that the City of Ottawa dwellers had to endure during the power outage on September 21 and on onwards, the MFGO Coordination Committee had no other alternatives but to postponed the scheduled Eid-ul Adha celebration program on the September 22, 2018. Even though the matter was beyond the Control of MFGO, the Coordination Committee of MFGO humbly regrets if this has caused you any inconvenience.

In order to salvage the lost event, the MFGO coordination committee has decided to hold the Eid-ul Adha celebration gathering on the 20th October 2018 (Saturday) starting at 1 PM at the Chapman Mills Community Building (424 Chapman Mills Drive, Ottawa, ON, K2J 0M7.; in this regard this cordial invitation is directed to those of you and your family who already had confirmed your attendance for the September 22, 2018 program.

This will be a Pot-Luck event. Please bring your choice of a dish to share with your fellow brothers and sisters in a post-Eid milieu. Items related to the Eid al Adha celebration would be greatly appreciated.

As part of this month’s program the topic for discussion is entitled as “Spirituality and Experience of Hajj”. Our own Ismail bhai, Beautie bhabi and few others from our community have performed Hajj this year, Alhamdulillah. They will speak among other things their personal experience and spiritually of Hajj as the way they have felt it.

Date: October 20, 2018 (Saturday)
Time: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Zuhr: 1:15 PM
Lunch: 1:30 PM
