Salaams brother,

I really do not celebrate Canada are go outside for that matter because kids go in a frenzy because of the fact that they have an excuse to go wild with fireworkers. It's crazy. But anyway, to answer your question(s), Canada Day is when Canada became an independent country from Britain on July 1, 1867. It all actually depends where in Canada you live. :statisfie I live in Toronto and there are many things to do here, you can go to the Islamic Centres and if you have children, they have many playcentres for them too. I forget the name of the centre, but If I remember it..I will surely get back to you, but It seems I'm already a bit late.

Salaams sis,

If you are in the Toronto area, you should check out the IMO. It is a very good mosque, Sheikh Khalid Yasin once came over to give a lecture and word on the street is that he's a very good public speaker, he's also very entertaining as well, manshallah. But if you need to know anything more about Toronto, or the Toronto area, feel free to ask me questions.

Salaams,

First and foremost, tell me which city you are visiting. :D Secondly, I have not even heard of Triod Masjid lol sorry..:-[ You can go horseback riding, but I'd suggest you visit the outlying suburbs of Ontario like Sudbury, Barrie, Muskoka (where all the cottages are), or if you can..find a place where they have horseback riding lessons. I'm personally afraid of horses so I wouldn't know, lol.

Tell me if you need anything else!

Salaama Alaykum sister and good afternoon!

First and foremost, I hope you are in good health and imaan and secondly, you're going to Missisauga? It's actually considered the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) and sorry sis, I really don't know much about it. I will try my best in assisting you, and finding some information.

Salaama Alaykum,

Missisauga is very serene especially compared to the hustle and bustle of all that is Toronto. Make sure you visit the Waterfront, manshallah it's very beautiful. Have a great time whilst you visit Toronto. You're very welcome for replying sis.

^ If that's it, I don't understand why there's a problem going there. I mean, is there any hadith/Qur'anic verse against fireworks that I may have missed?

Anyways, what's it for? If ts for the arrival of Jesus on earth, or the birthday of Guru Nanak (who is he?), I'm guessing that you're not allowed. But if its independance day or something of that sort, I don't think that you're not allowed.

Salaama Alaykum Amatul Malik,

Canada Day is exactly like Independence Day, it was when Canada gained independence from Britain. I really don't think people actually celebrate our independence though, it's just an excuse to have fun.

Salaam Alaykum brother Harun,

Do I sense a follow Canadian? :D

I do not live in Dixon actually, I live in Etobicoke though. Are you a fellow Somali? I read through some of your posts and you claim to be. Good to see one around here. :D

I hope you are having a wonderful afternoon if you are indeed from Toronto.

Assalamu 'alaikum,

I didn't find anything that specifically mentioned Canada Day, but I found this. Insha'Allah it helps :)

Question :

I see many "Muslims" joining in Christmas and other celebrations. Is there any daleel from the Quran and Sunnah that I can present to them to show that these are indeed very sinful practices?.


Answer :

Praise be to Allaah.

It is not permissible to join in the kaafir festivals for the following reasons:

Firstly: because this entails imitating or resembling them, and “Whoever imitates a people is one of them.” (Narrated by Abu Dawood). This is a serious warning. ‘Abd-Allaah ibn al-‘Aas said: Whoever lives in the land of the mushrikeen and celebrates their Nawrooz (New Year) and their Mahrajaan (festivals), and imitates them until he dies, he will be a loser on the Day of Resurrection.

Secondly: taking part in their festivals is a kind of befriending.

Salaama Alaykum brothers and sisters,

Brother sudais, I already gave you a Salaam before..read carefully. ;)

Sister nebula, You're coming on Saturday inshallah? Hope you have a safe trip and enjoy the scenery.:statisfie

Sister Umniyah, I'm sure your relatives will know exactly what Waterfront is. Just ask them, they will probably take you anyway. I suggest you don't swim in those waters though, lol.

Vancouver is on the West Coast and Toronto is on the East lol it's very far, but if you're willing to pay..I would go for that city too. ;)

The waterfront is really nice, I remeber going skating down there once .. you also may want to take the ferry over to the Toronto Islands and have a picnic, it has a nice view of lake ontario.. ..I do that with my family every year :)
