Muktad (S) Prayers

(August 11 – 15, 2021)

The R&L Committee, in discussion with the OZCF Board, has worked out a procedure on accommodating members wishing to come out to the ZRCC to pray over the Shehenshai Muktad period August 11th – 15th.

We will be performing all the prayers during the Muktad days – three Satoom sessions (morning, afternoon and evening), and Afringan & Farokshi in the morning. Evening Satoom will be broadcasted live. If you wish to give the names of your dearly departed for daily prayers, please download, and complete the Muktad Names Form from the OZCF website and send it along with your donation cheque payable to OZCF to reach Er. Nozer Kotwal by August 8th. As it has been a tough year in terms of revenue generation for OZCF, we request the community to donate generously.

The Hall will be open for a few hours during the prayers. Prayer timings are:

  6:30 am – Morning Satoom

  7:00 am – Afringan and Farokshi

11:30 am – Afternoon Satoom

  7:00 pm – Evening Satoom


Based on the current Step 3 of the Provincial reopening, the number of people in the Hall will be restricted to 75 at any given time. We will review numbers allowed closer to the dates. Meals will be served only on the patio on all days (afternoon and evening); donations will be highly appreciated.

Donation of fruits, dry fruits, flowers, Sukhad, Loban, Tachho, etc. is always welcomed. If you wish to offer your home-made Malido, Ravo, Sev, Batasa, Bhakhraas, we ask that you make arrangements with Er. Kotwal before the Muktad begin.

Members wishing to attend in-person must give their names to Er. Nozer Kotwal at (905) 820-0461 or at nskotwal1@gmail.com well before the Muktad period begins. Attendees will be allowed in on a first-come basis and access limited to agreed numbers in the Hall. The evening Satoom prayers will be live-streamed, and members not attending in-person are encouraged to join in the prayers online. The link for the broadcast is www.ozcf.com at 7:00 pm on each day.

As with all messages OZCF has communicated to the community, we remind our members that while these stipulations require us to carry out our engagements differently, we must adhere to them in order to enhance the safety of our members, volunteers and Mobeds.  OZCF appreciates your continued patience and understanding.
