It is with sadness that we share the news of the demise of Sr. Sakina Shivji, who passed away in Toronto.

Salāt al-Mayyit will be at the Jaffari Community Centre today, Thursday, June 11, 2020, at 5:30 pm. Thereafter, burial will be at Wadi Al-Salaam (10992 Kennedy Road).

Based on the current directive from the Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO), a maximum of six relatives 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 requested to refrain from any physical contact (shaking hands, embracing) and ensuring that they respect the physical distancing requirements.

Marhūma was the daughter of Shabbir Shivji and Fatma Jaffer. She was the sister of Hadi Ali Shivji and Muhammad Hassan Shivji and the granddaughter of Pyarali and Late Masuma Shivji (of Dar es Salaam) and Mohammed and Tahera Jaffer.

We request members of the community to respect the privacy of the family as they grieve this loss.

Please recite Salāt Hadya Mayyit tonight and remember the Marhūma, and the family in your du’ās.
