2. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED for entry to the facilities for Salaatul Jumu’ah. Registration details are on our website islam.ca

4. Anyone arriving after the gates/doors have closed will not be admitted
5. We apologize for any inconvenience - please bear with us as we assess the best option moving forward

Gates close 5 minutes prior to prayer so please arrive early and ensure that you complete the COVID screening. If you are unable to attend or wish to cancel you can do so by requesting a “Refund” on Eventbrite, or by emailing us at registrar@islam.ca or iit@islam.ca

Please note that if you make the effort to register, but are prevented by the cap on attendees, you will still get the reward by the mercy of Allah. You can also follow our live Khutbah online and perform Jumu’ah at home if you have two or more individuals present. This is the fatwa of our senior scholar, Shaikh Ahmad Kutty.

Illuminate Your Life: 101 Prophetic Traditions

“Allah has been gracious to the believers when He sent a messenger among themselves, who recites His revelations to them, purifying them and teaching them the scripture and wisdom. Before that, they were in manifest error.” (Qur’an: 3: 164)

The Prophetic mission is to transform society by transforming individuals within and without through education and mentoring.

The process entails inculcating sound beliefs, molding character, purifying the souls – thus awakening the hearts.

According to Imam Shafi (d. 204 AH /820 CE), the Prophetic wisdom is enshrined in the authentic Sunnah as recorded in the sound traditions.

This course intends to study 101 authentic traditions to provide a road map for living Islam authentically in its three dimensions-faith, spiritual practices, moral and spiritual development.

Short episodes, three times a week, Mon./Wed./Sun, at 6:30 pm.

We will provide the traditions to be studied each week in advance

Getting Others to Change

Shereeza Ibrahim. B.A.Psych, M.S.W, R.S.W.
Clinical Counsellor and Author

We all have people in our lives that that we believe need to change for the better. We believe that our relationships would be so much more harmonious if they just had a better attitude or better habits. What is worse is when we make a consistent effort to change because we passionately believe in improving the way we relate to others, yet others are still not willing to make the slightest change in their attitude and behaviour. So what do we do?

Sadaqah jariyah

Sadaqa jariyah means ongoing or perpetual charity.

It 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)
