Assalamu Alaikum Dear Friends,
My family and I moved to Kanata in July of 2014. When we arrived, Jumah salat was being offered in rented spaces like churches and community centres. Since then, we have outgrown 6 rental locations. These days, hundreds of our fellow brothers and sisters are offering Jumah salat in the 7th location, the gymnasium of a municipal recreation complex.
Other activities such as Quran, Islamic studies and Arabic/Urdu language classes, daily salat with jamat, halaqahs and community iftars are currently happening at 5 different rental locations.
At this point, we cannot continue further like this for long. The search for a property for a masjid had been going on unsuccessfully for many years, but alhamdulillah in November 2016, the community was finally able to purchase a beautiful and ideally-located property that is close to many Muslim families and Muslim tech workers.
Now, we are trying our best to build a well-designed masjid and centre for salah, Quran teaching and learning, dawah, feeding and helping those in need, counselling, caring for seniors, children and youth education and much more. You can learn more about our community, our project and our need at www.kanatamuslims.ca.
Our community has been very generous, Masha Allah, but we are not able to do this alone. Can you help by contributing to my campaign? Every dollar counts.
Uthman ibn Affan (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace, and blessings be upon him, said:
“Whoever builds a masjid for Allah, then Allah will build for him a house like it in Paradise.” (Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 439, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 533)
Your contribution will go towards building our much-needed Masjid. Insha Allah benefit my family, our community and the entire ummah for generations to come.

Jazak Allah khair.
