Provincial Stay at Home Order

As a result of the Provincial Stay at Home Order, and based on the current assessment of the COVID-19 situation by medical experts, and the fact that IIT is considered to be within a geographical COVID-19 hotspot, IIT will be temporarily closing its facilities until further notice.

This means that:
There will be no collective prayers at IIT (including taraweeh)
• We will re-assess this situation in a few days and update our policy after the first week of Ramadan inshaAllah

It is important that all of us follow the public health guidelines and the stay at home order so that we can minimize the spread of the virus.

We also encourage you to take the vaccine when it becomes available (Malvern Neighbourhood qualifies for vaccination for 50 years and over). For Islamic perspectives on the vaccine, please see COVID-19 Resources.

Maximise your Ramadan Rewards by donating!

One of One Thousand Ramadan campaign

We invite everyone to give generously during Ramadan, before Khatam-al-Qur'an.

With your support, we can continue our efforts to nourish the minds, hearts, and souls of Muslims.

Sadaqa jariyah is a form of charity which, unlike other charities, survives the donor and continues to be a source of blessings for the donor long after they have passed. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “When a person dies, all his works cease except three things: ongoing charity, beneficial knowledge, or righteous offspring that pray for him.” (Reported by Muslim and others on the authority of Abu Hurayrah)
