We took possession of the property on 6 May 2014 and five times salah started immediately. By the grace of Allah SWT & generosity of the Ummah, the $1.8 million was collected and the property has been completely paid off.
Currently there are daily classes for adults after Isha, weekly programs, as well as an Evening Maktab for girls and boys. Not only do 5 times Salaat and Juma take place, but other social services are also being provided, including marriage and counselling services. Several needy families have also been assisted through our Zakaat and Scholarship Program. We are also host to the biggest Muslim soccer league in the Durham Region.
In an effort to take care of our immediate need for space, our application to the city for 6 portables has been accepted and they should be supplied and installed in the spring. Once installed, our full focus will be on the Main Masjid Project, the drawings of which have already been submitted to the city for approval.
Alhamdulillah, between 2015-2017, we have been able to repay more than $300 000 of Qardh Hasana given to help pay off the Masjid property. As of January 1st, 2018, our Qardh Hasana stands at $156,500. Since it is purely a community project for all the Muslims, irrespective of language, race, color or school of thought, therefore, we appeal to the entire Ummah to use their wealth that Allah has blessed them with in this very noble cause, please.
