The Islamic Society of Toronto, Masjid Dar Us Salaam, is located at 4 Thorncliffe Park Drive in Toronto, Ontario.
On May 20, 2018 its official Facebook page shared the topics and text of the taraaweeh (night) prayers on the fifth day of the month of Ramadan under the title of “#DAY5 – WHAT WILL BE READ TONIGHT IN TARAAWEEH **The Fifth Taraaweeh**.”
Here are excerpts from Masjid Dar Us Salaam’s Facebook post:
Allaah tells the Muslims that they should have firm faith in their Deen of Islam which Allaah has
perfected, thereby completing His enormous bounty on them. Therefore, Muslims should uphold the sanctity of Islam’s injunctions and critically distinguish between the lawful and the unlawful. Muslims are enjoined to abstain from evil and to be grateful.
Surah Maa’idah [The fifth chapter of the Quran “The Table Spread”] contains laws that pertain to man’s religious, civil, social and political life. This Surah contains detailed guidance about : –
• The etiquette of the hajj journey
• Revering the beacons of Deen
• The perimeters of halaal and haraam
• Marriage and interaction with the Ahlul Kitaab (Jews and
• The laws of wudhu, ghusl and Tayammum
• Dealing with rebellion
• The punishment for robbery and theft
• The prohibition of liquor and gambling
• The Kaffaara (atonement) for breaking vows and
• The detailed laws concerning testimony
Allaah ordains that the hand of a male or female thief is to be cut off.
The Muslims are also warned against taking the Jews and Christians as friends.
Allaah makes it clear that the belief in the ‘Trinity’ constitutes kufr [heresy] and that enmity and hatred have been entrenched into the hearts of the kuffaar [disbelievers/ infidels] till Qiyaamah [Day of Resurrection]. Allaah entreats Rasululllaah [messenger of Allah] (sallAllaahu-alayhi-wa-sallam) [peace be upon him] not to be grieved about the disbelief of the kuffaar [disbelievers/ infidels] because he is not responsible for them. Surah Maa’idah [The fifth chapter of the Quran “The Table Spread”] also states that Jannah [paradise] is forbidden for the Mushrikeen [polytheists] and that oppressors will have none to aid them against Allaah. Allaah says that those people of the past who adhered to the divine religions of their times will attain salvation if they firmly believed in Allaah and in the Day of Qiyaamah [Day of Resurrection].
The following are excerpts from Masjid Dar Us Salaam’s Facebook post on June 20, 2016:
The Sixth Taraweeh [night prayer during Ramadan]. This summary of the 6th Taraweeh covers the verses from the second quarter of the seventh para (verse 116 of Surah Maa’idah) [The fifth chapter of the Quran “The Table Spread”], and concludes midway through the eighth para (up to the end of Surah An’aam) [The fifth chapter of the Quran “The Cattle”].
On the Day of Qiyaamah [Day of Resurrection] Allaah will remind Hadhrat Isa (A.S) [Jesus] about his miraculous birth, about the various miracles that Allaah allowed him to perform and about the favours that Allaah bestowed on him and his mother Hadhrat Maryam (A.S). Allaah will then ask him,“Oh Isa [Jesus], son of Maryam, did you tell the people, ‘Take myself and my mother both as deities instead 17 of Allaah?’” Hadhrat Isa (A.S) [Jesus] will deny that he ever encouraged this and will accede, “You know what is in my heart … I only told them what You had commanded me with i.e. ‘Worship Allaah, Who is my Rabb [Lord] and your Rabb [Lord]! … If You punish them, then verily they are Your slaves, and if You pardon them, then surely You are the Mighty, the Wise.” [verses 116, 117 and 118 of Surah Maa’idah].
Surah An’aam commences after Surah Maa’idah. Allaah mentions that it has always been the practice of the kuffaar [disbelievers/ infidels] to ridicule the Ambiya (A.S) [sic. Anbiya, meaning the prophets] and to call them wizards. However, Allaah’s Deen [religion of Islam] will always conquer and rise, while the kuffaar [disbelievers/ infidels] will suffer a terrible doom for their falsehood.”
The following are excerpts from Masjid Dar Us Salaam’s Facebook post on October 22, 2017:
Question: When Jesus (Peace be upon him) comes again to this World will he come as a Prophet or will he come as a follower of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)?
Answer: In the Name of God, the Merciful and Compassionate
When the Prophet Isa [Jesus] (Peace be upon him) returns to this world he will be a Prophet and implement the law of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
The Prophet Isa [Jesus] will judge and live according to the shariah of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
Abu Huraira narrated that the Prophet Mohammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said: ‘There is no prophet between me and him [Jesus Christ]. He shall descend, so recognize him when you see him. He is a man of medium height, [his complexion] is between reddish and white, he will be [dressed] in two yellowish garments. His head looks as if it is dripping water even though it is not wet. He will fight people in the way of Islam, will break the cross, kill the swine, and abolish the annual tax [Jizyah]. Allah will put an end to all religions except Islam during his time. He will slay the Antichrist and he will stay on Earth for forty years. Then, he will die and the Muslims will perform the funeral prayer over him.’ [Abu Dawud and Musnad of Ahmad]
It is clear from this hadith and other similar ahadith that Sayiddna Isa [Jesus] will establish Islam as the only accepted religion and govern by Islamic law…”

#DAY4. “WHAT WILL BE READ IN TONIGHTS TARAAWEEH [night prayer during Ramadan].” (4) **The Fourth Taraaweeh**
This discussion begins with the last quarter of the fourth para (beginning of Surah Nisaa) [the forth chapter of the Quran “The Women”], and concludes with the end of the fifth para (verse 147 of Surah Nisaa)…
Allaah also mentions the people who misinterpret the verses of the Qur’aan to meet their own ends. Such people are warned about a terrible punishment from Allaah. Allaah also forbids the Mu’mineen [Muslim believers] from taking the kuffaar [disbelieves/ infidels] as their confidantes…
The following guidance for social reformation is given:
2. Allaah also makes it clear that a man is limited to only four wives at a time. Allaah also tells man that he should rather have only one wife if he fears that he would be unable to deal justly with them all…
3. To purge society of the filth of adultery and fornication, Allaah has ordained that when four upright persons testify to witnessing any of these acts, those found guilty must be severely punished…
Allaah also commands the Mu’mineen [Muslim believers] to wage jihaad; impresses on their minds that martyrdom is an exalted position and states that fear for death is an act of cowardice for a Muslim…
Another statement of extreme importance is the verse where Allaah declares that although He may forgive any sin, He will never forgive the act of shirk [ the sin of practicing idolatry or polytheism].
