Living in the West, there is no better blessing than being a part of a beautiful and thriving community.
In fact, having a center with varied programming for every member of the community is an urgent priority for all Muslims in North America.
(As immigrants or as children of immigrants, we all try our best to look for that safety net for our children. A safe place for them to grow up in. A place where they can be connected with their Deen as they deal with the challenges etc. etc). Darussalaam has been that place for a lot of new immigrants moving to this country.
It’s become even MORE vital because now it’s not just Muslims who grew up in the West that depend on these facilities and services. But refugees from Muslim countries have crossed oceans to escape danger and instability.
More than 20 years ago we named our masjid in the Thorncliffe community of Toronto Darussalam (House of Peace) because we wanted it to be a source of peace for all our community members.
Alhamdulillah after decades of hard work, Darussalam now serves an ever growing community of thousands of Muslims from all over the world and at all different stages of life.
What started as a small Musalla (prayer space) in one of our apartments, through the support of Allah swt, blossomed into a masjid and center that services the largest Muslim Community in Toronto.
And by the will of Allah, our community continues to grow faster than we can afford to develop our space!
We would like to continue being that safe haven for new families moving here and We have done all that we can ourselves to serve the community. But now, we urgently need YOUR help to expand our Masjid so we can have the space for all of our activities and services. So we may continue to be a Darussalaam for these families.
Without the necessary funds for our expansion project we won’t even have the space to pray Jumaa, let alone all of the other services our community requires.
This isn’t just an opportunity to expand our building to fit more bodies and facilitate hundreds of acts of worship a day.
It’s also an opportunity for you, brothers and sisters, to add infinitely to your scale of good deeds by helping to build a House of Allah.
There are tremendous rewards in that for you! Allah has promised You a specific reward:
