Peel Regional Police - Muslim recruitment session: Oct. 5, 6 pm at Sayeda Khadija Centre

Peel Regional Police is continuing with ongoing initiatives to draw new, diverse and qualified candidates into policing to promote employment opportunities as Police Cadets, Police Constables and Civilians to different demographics, cultures and communities within the Region of Peel and the GTA.

A Muslim Recruitment Forum session will be held on Wed. Oct. 5, 6pm - 9pm, at Sayeda Khadija Centre.

Muslims knew the police system since the Prophet's (peace be upon him) era, but it was not in a systematic or organized manner. Al-Bukhari stated in his Sahih that "Qays ibn Sa'd (may Allaah be pleased with him) was to the Prophet like a chief police officer to an Amir." Umar ibn al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) was the first Muslim ruler who carried out night patrols at Madinah to guard the people and reveal suspicious elements.

Tafseer session: Oct. 8, 6 pm

Join us for one of our flagship programs, where Shaikh Abdool Hamid will discuss central concepts in the Qur'an. These sessions systematically explain the verses of the Holy Qur'an from the earliest sources.
