It is with sadness that we share the news of the demise of Sr. Fatima Mahmud Rattansey who passed away in Toronto.

Salāt al-Mayyit will be at the Jaffari Community Centre today Saturday, November 27, 2021 at 1:00 pm. Thereafter, burial will be at Wadi Al Salaam, Al Hussain Foundation (10992 Kennedy Road, Markham).

Based on our ability to manage the distancing requirements for the congregation, a limited number of pre-registered immediate relatives and volunteers will attend Salāt al-Mayyit and the burial. For those unable to attend the Salāt in person, we will be broadcasting the program live from the centre for mu’mīnīn to participate remotely.

Mu’mīnīn attending the funeral will be required to wear masks, requested to refrain from any physical contact (shaking hands, embracing) and ensure that they respect the physical distancing requirements.


Please note that there will be no live broadcast at the cemetery. 


Marhūma was the daughter of Jaffer Alarakhia Rahim. She was the mother Rahat Thomason and Grandmother to Yasmin Thompson.  She leaves behind her brother Iqbal Rahim (Dubai) and her four sisters Kaniz Rattansi (London, England), Khurshid Khimji (Toronto, Canada), Rehana Jamal, Rosina Kermalli (Paris, France) and sister-in-law Mary Rahim.
