Call for Collective ADHAN
Due to the constant rise of COVID-19 and its deadly impact on several Canadians, Islamic Supreme Council of Canada (ISCC) requesting all Muslim brothers to call collective ADHAN in their own homes across the country at the same time. If you have open area at your house like balcony or backyard or front yard then go there to call ADHAN. If you don’t have any open area just open the door or window of your house / apartment and call ADHAN. This ADHAN should be performed across the entire country at Muslim houses at the same time.
Please do not use any sound system or recorded ADHAN. A person should call ADHAN and make sure you do not disturb your neighbours with loud voice. Don’t forget to make Wudhu before making ADHAN.
Therefore, at 5:30PM (PST) which corresponds with 6:30PM (MST), 7:30PM (CST), 8:30PM (EST), 9:30PM (AST) and 10:00PM (Newfoundland) all brothers call Adhan. Please continue doing this on daily basis until the threat of COVID-19 reduces significantly. May Allah remove this dangerous pandemic from the planet earth and heal everyone who is suffering from it. Amen.
