Closed to the public


Assalaamu Alaikum

As you are aware, Toronto has now entered the Grey-Lockdown Category of the Province's COVID-19 Response Framework. Place of Worship such as IIT have been restricted in their activities, including a maximum of 10 people for religious services.

As a result, IIT will not be offering prayers for the public, including Salaatul Jumu'ah until the restrictions are lifted.

However, IIT will be broadcasting the Khutbah live at 1:00 PM every Friday. You can watch the livestream on all our platforms, including our Website, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

You may perform the Jumu'ah prayers after listening to the Khutbah if there are two or more persons to pray. Otherwise, you can perform Salaatul Dhuhr. This is the opinion of our senior scholar, Shaikh Ahmad Kutty.

Please note that we offer a number of Online Programs, including Live and Recorded Courses, Podcasts and Dua's to Power Your Day. Please check our Website and Facebook page for updates.

We ask that you follow the Public Health Guidelines and restrictions and play your role in helping to flatten the curve of this virus.

We pray that Allah protect us from the pandemic, and from all other harms. We pray that Allah guide us to that which is right, and make us among the righteous.

Sincerely,

Fareed Amin
Chair

The (False) Stories We Tell Ourselves

Shereeza Ibrahim. B.A.Psych, M.S.W, R.S.W.
Clinical counsellor and Author
GTA Wellness Consultation

We all have beliefs about ourselves and the world around us. We treat it as fact, and act on those beliefs with passion, anger, infatuation and fear. But what if we are really just telling ourselves false stories?

A woman comes home, feeling exhausted at work. In fact, she has overworked herself trying to prove herself to her manager of Toronto's most successful interior design agency, who only seems to give negative feedback. As she barely enters the door, her children run to her with complaints about what she had packed them for lunch. Her husband can see that she looks stressed, and consoles her with a hug. Yet, it seems every day is the same thing.
