Muktad Procedures

The Religious and Lecture Committee, in discussion with the OZCF Board, have worked out a procedure on accommodating members wishing to come out to the ZRCC to pray over the Shehenshai Muktad period August 11th – 15th during the current pandemic.

We will be performing all the prayers during the Muktad days - three Satoom sessions (morning, afternoon and evening), Afringan and Farokshi in the morning.

Evening Satoom and Hum Bundagi will be broadcasted live.

If you wish to give the names of your dear 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. Timings are:

  • ·         6:15 am – 9:00 am
  • ·         11:00 am – 12:30 pm
  • ·         6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

**Please note – the number of people in the Hall will be restricted to 30 at any given time. Also, there is no access to prayer room in the house as the house is currently locked.

There will be no meals nor Chasni served at any of the sessions.

We will let people enter on a first-come basis and limit access to 30 members in the Hall.  If there are others, they will have to wait in their cars.  After the prayers have concluded, the attendees in the Hall may pay homage by offering Lobaan, after which they must leave immediately.  When members leave the Hall, volunteers would have the next group waiting in their cars enter.

Volunteers will notify members to leave the premises immediately after, with no socializing to be done on the property.

Names of members wishing to attend must contact Nozer Kotwal at (905) 820-0461 or at nskotwal1@gmail.com well before the Muktad begins.

Sukhad must be bought from OZCF and cannot be brought from home or outside.  We ask that members not light a Divo in the Hall, instead letting the Mobeds do so.

If you wish to offer your home-made Malido, Ravo, Sev, Batasa, Bhakhraas, etc., we ask that you make arrangements with Ervad Kotwal and drop it off at his house before the Muktad begin.  Please do not bring it to the ZRCC on the day.

All members who come to the property MUST adhere to the laid down protocols (COVID-19 Screening Sheet and Instruction Guidelines), bearing in mind the volunteer has the right to refuse a member from entry if they feel the member could be endangering the health and safety of others.

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.
