Ramadan 2021 Activities
Every year, MSA strives to help the Muslim community of St. John’s make the most of the holy month of Ramadan and we will be doing the same this year despite the challenges of Covid 19. We are honored to host the 5 daily prayers in the congregation, along with the daily Taraweeh while also continuing the Jummah prayer, In Sha Allah. All brothers and sisters are welcome to join the prayers. In order to ensure everyone’s safety, we urge all attendees to comply with the Covid restrictions.
MSA is also working to make arrangements for Iftar deliveries every Sunday, so students don’t have to miss out on the blessings of Iftar especially during their exams.
