Update 30 December 2013

Elhamdulillah, we reached over 93% of our fundraiser target.

Thank you to all who donated during this fundraiser.

By the grace of Allah the current building at 312 Lisgar St. will be demolished for a new structure to better serve the Ottawa/Gatineau community. In addition to separate prayer facilities for men and women, the plan provides for offices for Muslim Family Services and Islamic Welcome Centre and a community resource and service centre.

Why should you Support the new Islam Care Centre?

  1. It is the only Masjid in downtown Ottawa. The Centre has the largest congregation for Dhuhr and Asr prayers in Ottawa. Convenient for those working, living and visiting the Capital City of Canada.
  2. A resource Centre on Islam. The Downtown location provides easy access for immediate, professional and current information on Islam and Muslims to Government agencies, the media, academic and religious institutions.
  3. Office for Muslim Family Services of Ottawa. As the community grows the social problems of the community also grow.  The Centre would provide ready and fast services for the many needs of the community serving Muslims and no-Muslims alike.
  4. Dawah and New Muslims. Offices will be available to coordinate Dawah activities and provide much needed services for new Muslims including: Providing Islamic books and training in the basics for individuals and groups.
  5. The new building will have a welcoming Storefront concept to invite the general public to seek information on Islam - and to better understand the way of life of Muslims.
