Alhamdulillah Masjid Toronto was able to secure another unit neighboring the Masjid for $1.8 million allowing us to expand our prayer space. This additional space will help us accommodate our ever growing community and the professionals working in Downtown Toronto. With the support of our congregation, we know it is possible.
With $300,000 already deposited, we are in need of 1500 congregants to pledge $1000 each to help us cover the remaining $1.5 million. With 5 months ahead of us to make the payment, each person would be donating $200 a month (or $50 every Friday).
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:
“Whoever builds a mosque with the intention of seeking Allah’s pleasure, Allah will build for him a place in Paradise.” (Sahih Al-Bukhai, Hadith #441 | Vol.1 | Agreed Upon)
We are currently building a volunteer team for the MAC Eid Festival. An event that brings together almost 15,000 Muslims on the joyful day of Eid. Help us by volunteering some of your time and expertise to make this year’s Eid one that is memorable and welcoming to the community.
The following positions are open to apply and more will be added soon. Resumes can be submitted to [email protected] preferably by next week. All the candidates will be asked to work in or lead teams.
We have identified an urgent need to help resettle the Syrian newcomers who are already in Canada. They have been housed in hotels on an interim basis, but a significant number of them will be moving to apartments that they have chosen for themselves. Over 200 families are moving out in the next 6-8 weeks and the first few weeks will be critical in ensuring a smooth and successful integration. There is a total of 500 families currently in hotels.
How you can help:
1) Donate towards a welcome kit for a Syrian newcomer – This welcome kit will contain everything that a family needs to get set up in their new homes, from cooking pots and utensils to bedding. Halal food will also be provided for the first few days. The cost of 1 family kit is $250. All receipts are tax deductible and are also eligible for Zakat.
2) Sign up as a support volunteer – This will be to provide logistical support (Kit and meal delivery in first 24 hours, and on going support to the host).
3) Sign up for the Ansar Muhajiroon program – This is a longer term commitment to be assigned as a ‘host’ with a specific Syrian newcomer family and to help them integrate into the society. This is a very rewarding position with a support network established to help the host. If you agree to be a host you will:
a) Undergo a background check
b) Sign up for 2 hour training session. Those who sign up to be a host will get a separate email with training materials.
c) Be generally available at least 2 weekdays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm to help the refugees in the first week
d) Speak Arabic or have someone in your family or circle of friends who speaks Arabic and is willing to help
Imam Dr. Wael Shehab’s new course on the ‘Fiqh of Seerah: Understanding the biography of Prophet Muhammad, may Allah’s peace be upon him’ every Tuesday after Maghrib.
Join us and our Imam, Dr. Wael Shehab, as he explores the beautiful and practical Seerah of Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم. Studying the Seerah is one of the ways that lead to loving the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and following his morals and values. It is also meant to introduce the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, as the ideal application of the Qur’an to people. It will also refute some distortions about the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and his biography.
