In collaboration with the Muslim Students Association powerhouses from across western Canada, we are bringing you a memorable experience for this year’s Islam Awareness Week at SFU taking place from January 21st to 25th.
United Islam Awareness Week is a week dedicated to promoting the teachings and practices of Islam. One could expect to learn about God, the Prophets, Hijab, the Qur'an, and much more. Prominent speakers from across North America and internationally will be speaking on various topics throughout the week in the evenings.
In addition, we are also fundraising for various SFU MSA programs and events which primarily includes our annual Ramadan Iftaars.
We encourage everyone to try and donate as much as they can. Every dollar counts. InshaAllah, this will be a great contribution going towards a great effort for the sake of Allah (swt). The Messenger of Allah (SAW) has said: “The earth on the Day of Resurrection will be scorching, except for the shadow of a believer, for verily his charity will serve him as shade.” (Kanzul Ummal: Volume 11, Page 616)
Alternate payment methods include e-transfer or giving cash in person. For e-transfer, please donate to Contactemail@example.com . For in cash donation please DM us for more details.
Every Monday, Thursday, on the 13th, 14th and 15th of every month, in Ramadan and on other encouraged fasting days, males and females gather in the Haram for iftaar. Dates, tea, yoghurt and bread is served to the fasting person, and everyone enjoys breaking the fast together ❤️ Tomorrow is Thursday and the 14th of the month - what better day to fast on than this? 😍

Holiday time means traditions to a lot of people. I never quite had the opportunity to cultivate traditions that were mine at an early age. To me, the holidays became about what other people wanted to do. By the time I got to my 20s, I didn’t seek out holiday traditions because I had been accustomed to what I wanted not mattering. .
In my early 30s is when i realized how deeply saddening it was to watch everyone around me have that 1 or 2 things they did every year at the holidays. Even my siblings had that. But, there I was, and I had no traditions to look forward to. .
A few years ago, I decided to change that. I made everyone go apple picking. I took Marbel to the #dogparade no matter how cold. I did something Halloween themed with friends. I hosted two #Thanksgiving dinners - one for friends and one for family. I hosted an #iftaar each #Ramadan at my home. I finally felt like I had created annual things to look forward to. .
This year, there was no apple picking (Bc the West Coast is lame). There was no dog parade. There was no #iftaar . And I won’t be hosting anything for any holiday. It feels like the traditions I worked so hard to cultivate were removed from my life, yet again. .
But, I guess that just means it’s time for new traditions. Maybe this year, I’ll take a trip for the holidays. Or maybe, I’ll finally get a Christmas tree of my own. Maybe I’ll do both!
Traditions are things that keep us going. They keep us connected. Sadly, with the loss of a tradition, a little bit of that connectedness is lost as well. But. C’est la vie. Hell, at least I got to carve a #pumpkin .
As a Muslim, I practice regular religious intermittent fasting. Today is one of those days. I love to hit the gym about an hour or two before I break my fast! So I made dinner a bit early tonight...waiting and ready for when I get home. Homemade vegan 🌱 falafel tonight! I don’t have one of those fancy falafel shapers...so I use a spoon! I lightly pan sauté with organic coconut oil mixed with olive oil.
But first it’s leg day at the gym...gotta get it done! InshAllah
Come Ramzaan and memories of childhood start flooding back. So one of my Mom's colleague, Shabana aunty used to make these beautiful iftaar dishes, and send over some for us kids. And what all did she send, home made delicious samose, egg chops, mutton biryani, sheer kurma.. to be true, I still swear by aunty's homemade biriyani.
So today was missing home a lot, and after seeing those iftaar food ads, decided to have something Ramzaan special.
Ordered the Mutton khichda from Sharief bhai, was a lil skeptical but the food came really good. For those who are not aware, khichra or khichda , is a variation of the dish Haleem, popular with Muslims of the Indian subcontinent. ... It is the meat based variant of rice dish from the Indian subcontinent called Khichdi. (source: wiki)
Say "samooosssaaaa"! My first time at an Iftaar special and was lucky to have such fun company. 10 courses of heavenly sensory delight. Mutton samosas, 2kg mutton leg(raan) marinated in some magic spice mix for 2 days, bheja fry, Russian chicken cutlets, alluvadi with mutton (would've never guessed this combo would work), mutton cooked in cracked wheat(haleem) served with Tamarind chutney, hand churned simple almond ice cream to name a few. We named our group the badass thaal (plate) girls. we felt we earned the name as we were the last thaal standing! 😆Thanks Bohri Kitchen for this wonderful experience @thebohrikitchen 🍽🎉🤓.
