About this Event

*Please note* The Gala Concert: Unity Comes Through Beauty, is adults only. The remainder of the weekend is family-friendly.

The new Rhoda Masjid and Spiritual Wellness Centre cordially invites you to our official grand opening weekend from November 1st to November 3rd. We are thrilled to open our doors to you finally and are eager for everyone to see the new space. Stay for the entire weekend, or join us for your favorite event. We will begin the weekend with worship at our first Friday congregational prayer with our resident scholar and founder Shaykh Hamdi Ben Aissa. Friday night, we will be hosting a gala concert with the amazing Mushfiq Ensemble, led by world-renowned artist Said Mushfiq Hashimi. The night will be filled with traditional Qawwali (classical spiritual music that emanates love through the recitation of Sufi poetry against rousing tunes and a powerful drumbeat), ghazals (poetic love songs), and other sacred song. The official opening ceremony will take place Saturday Morning followed by a community brunch. Saturday evening we will be honouring our beloved Prophet ﷺ, by celebrating his birth at our annual Grand Mawlid. Together, we will recite from Habib Umar ben Hafidh’s great poetic celebration of the life and character of our Beloved Prophet ﷺ, 'The Shimmering Light (al-Diya’ al-Lami),' and sing hymns that inspire and cultivate greater love in our hearts. Lastly, we will finish the weekend by coming together to break bread over a community brunch Sunday Morning. All are welcome; all are invited. Come celebrate the blessings of our Lord!
