You might recall that I had written about this biannual event which the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) holds before but, things have changed. Therefore, I’m obliged to update you all. Alhamdulilah, the event has grown and has become what one accepts for such an Eid gathering.
For one, Eid salaat was on time. The congregation was large and we were all comfortably fitted. The qutbah was short and sincere. I was at the second salaat so I’m not sure of the political guests that attended.
One of the organizers for the Eid Festival announced, when asking for donations, that “We do this for your kids. When your kids say we don’t celebrate Halloween or Christmas, you can tell them that we did Eid”.
So, I wish to say JazakAllah to all those who helped create such a wonderful event. Keep up the good work. And to recommend you to attend the next wonderful Eid Festival MAC holds, if you’re in Toronto.
