The Second Q&A Session Regarding Hajj Pilgrimage from Canada

 
Hajj
 
Thanks to the benevolent host of this blessed month, Montreal Toheed Society held "The Second Annual Q&A Session Regarding Hajj Pilgrimage from Canada" and thus reminded the community of this religious duty on the verge of the holy month of Ramadan. The event was held in English and saw the presence of an audience of around fifty Muslims from various nationalities and backgrounds. In this event, 2 of the young pilgrims of recent years (Seyed Hossein Hashemi and Mohammad Kadhim) shared their experinces and answered the audience's questions on the spiritual journey. Finally, a draw was done and from the audience, Mahdi Ghotboddini, Wassan Manshad and Ali Shobeiri were, respectfully, chosen as the winner, the first reserve and the second reserve to receive the Hajj-assistance gift for a first-timer.
The Hajj-assistance gift for a first timer was $2'500.00 CAD which had been gathered from six activists in the community. This group included the pilgrims of last year's event. On average, each person contributed $416.00 CAD with a minimum of $100.00 CAD and a maximum of $700.00 CAD of donations.

Further Explanation:
Last year, some of the returned Hajj first-timers organized an event for our community to promote the importance of Hajj and shared some of their knowledge, experiences, and tips about Hajj. Coupled with two hajj-assistance gifts, they facilitated the sending of two randomly chosen members of our community to this spiritual trip in 2015. Now, they are once again giving back to the community by doing the same thing in the second year.
We are going to discuss some of the details about the logistic of Hajj, tips and experiences and will have a draw for a $2,500 hajj-assistance gift for a first-timer. This is a gift and will be directly paid to the Hamla/group who organizes the Hajj travel.
