Etobicoke’s biggest Masjid and youth center needs YOUR help to finish!

TODAY, 9 OUT OF 10 YOUTH DO NOT FEEL WELCOME AT THE MASJID.

Have WE failed our Muslim youth?

Have we invested in making spaces where THEY feel comfortable, welcomed, and a part of the Muslim community?

Have we addressed their spiritual, psychological, and intellectual questions about Islam in today’s context?

Have we thought about how our children and grandchildren will turn out?

34% of Muslims raised in the West choose to quietly leave Islam.

In the city of Toronto, MANY of our youth are leaving Islam! Or losing themselves to their environment!

Many parents may never truly know of their children’s inner state.

For hundreds of families in the West, Islam only remains in people’s last name.

They’ve forgotten the kalimah. They may have had fathers named ‘Muhammad’ and mothers named ‘Khadijah’. They may have Muslim names too! But they do not know the A, B, Cs of Islam.

Today, 9 out of 10 youth do NOT feel welcome at the Masjid.

What can we do to PREVENT this from happening in our generation? For our children? And their children?

We MUST understand that if we don’t take charge, we will lose THOUSANDS if not MILLIONS of our children.

How can we SAVE them? How can we protect their Islam?

The Etobicoke Muslim community contains the LARGEST density of Muslim youth in Ontario, Canada.

These youth and the Etobicoke community URGENTLY require YOUR donations to help us COMPLETE our unfinished Darul-Hijra Islamic Center.

WHO ARE WE?

Darul-Hijra Islamic Center has been educating and serving the Muslim community of Etobicoke, Toronto since 2008

Dar Al-Hijra started through the purchase of a property in November by the Canadian Muslim Heritage Association (a non-profit charitable organization). What started as a humble beginning grew exponentially to over 5000+ members, whom we still serve. Our focus has always been on the youth.

We have been providing our members with:

  • Quran memorization classes
  • Sunday school for children
  • Adult Quran classes in Tajweed
  • After school tutoring
  • ​Martial Arts program
  • Sleepover programs
  • Youth activities(basketball tournaments & table tennis)
  • ​Community events and Nikah services
  • Personal consultation with our Imams

WHY DO WE REQUIRE YOUR SUPPORT

Our property which was purchased in 2007 as a used building CANNOT serve all the needs of our community today.

We have THOUSANDS of youth.

The old building needs to be renovated and modernized to create a fully functional multi-purpose community center which serves the needs of our Muslim youth in the Etobicoke area.

AN UNFINISHED MASJID

What’s our situation right now?

We own the land. We own the building. But it’s like moving into a house with no furniture. Construction has already been underway. But our Masjid is incomplete and we NEED your funds to complete this project. Right now, the inside of the Masjid is a construction zone.

It looks like an uncooked lasagna – the ingredients are there. But it’s not cooked or complete!

We simply need that final push to COMPLETE the construction of this beautiful Islamic Center.

We are ALMOST there!

YOUR help will help US help OUR youth. This is OUR future! We will be able to better provide the resources, the recreational center, and better programs aimed to serve our youth, with the added space and resources.

For all these reasons, we URGENTLY need to complete our Darul-Hijrah Islamic Center and make it into a full community center similar with a SPECIAL emphasis on our youth and the unique challenges they are facing in this deeply troubled area of Toronto!

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “When a person dies, all their deeds end except three: a continuous charity, beneficial knowledge and a child who prays for them,” (Hadith of Muslim).

Your donation will help us COMPLETE our project. And this donation WILL be a Sadaqah Jaariyah in your account. ALL of the youth who come to this completed center and ALL of their good deeds will go into YOUR account.

Abu Mas’ud reported: The Prophet (peace be upon him), said, “Whoever guides someone to goodness will have a reward like one who did it.” (Sahih Muslim)

So what are you waiting for? These are YOUR children too! Donate now.
