Assalamu Alaikum Dear Friends,

I pray that all is well with you and your families, and that you are reaping the maximum benefits of the last few days of this blessed month inshaa Allah.

Alhamdulillah, our local Muslim community here in Kanata (in the western part of Ottawa) is growing quickly and is in dire need of a masjid and centre. Alhamdulillah, we have purchased and paid off a beautiful property. Now, we are raising funds for preparing the property for use and for construction.

You can get all the details about our need, our vision and our project at www.kanatamuslims.ca.

Please remember us in your duaa. We also have an online campaign running right now that is close to reaching its goal. Please plant your seeds for Sadaqah Jariyah on these blessed days and nights by donating online at www.kanatamuslims.ca.

Jazak Allah khair. May Allah accept from you and grant you a great palace in Jannah.

যাজাক আল্লাহ খাইর। দোয়া করি আল্লাহতালা যেন আপনার দান কবুল করেন এবং বিনিময়ে জান্নাতে আপনার জন্যে একটি প্রাসাদ উপহার দেন।

“Our Blessed Home” Ramadan Campaign is Live!

Once again this Ramadan, we’re feeling the need – more than ever – for a permanent home for our commuity. The good news is that we’re moving closer to achieving this dream, alhamdulillah! Our new property is in our possession and is paid off. Design work for the new masjid and centre is in the process of being completed. Soon, we will need to prepare the property for use and construction, without which we won’t be able to move forward. Our goal this Ramadan is to raise the funds needed for this critical work, which will bring us even closer to finally establishing your second home, in shaa Allah!

Thank you – first fundraising target reached!

ALL PRAISE IS FOR ALLAH

Through the Mercy of Allah and your generous support, we have reached our target for our current “Our Home, Our Dreams” fundraising campaign. Alhamdulillah!

These funds will be used to pay off the interest-free loans we took to purchase our new property and to begin the zoning process, inshaa Allah. This is a great and much-needed boost to get us started, alhamdulillah.

We ask Allah Almighty to greatly bless and reward each person who contributed, volunteered, reached out to others and made du’aa for the success of our efforts. May Allah shower you and your families with His mercy and gifts, remove all your difficulties, protect you all and grant you safety, health and prosperity in this world and the next.

Although this campaign is complete, donations are always welcome as we will need further support in the future for required modifications to the existing structure and property to make it usable based on city requirements, inshaAllah.

Please follow us here or check out our Facebook page for updates.

Only 7% to go and 2 days left in “Our Home, Our Dreams” campaign!

Only 7% to go and 2 days left in “Our Home, Our Dreams” campaign!
