There have been confirmed sightings of the new crescent in the parameters of the Hilal Committee on the eve of Sunday July 27th, 2014 (29th Ramadan 1435), therefore the Hilal Committee of the GTA officially declares the completion of the blessed month of Ramadan. The 1st of Shawwal (Eidul Fitr) will be on Monday July 28, 2014,
Alhamdulillah the Parkdale Islamic Education Centre (PIEC) was completely established for nonprofit purposes. Masha-Allah the Muslim population in this area has considerably grown and now is the time to build our own masjid. As such, we should all put our hands together to start this divine project as the Masjid building is currently on rent.
Unfortunately this Masjid is established on a rented property which faces a threat of evacuation upon landlord's discretion who is a member of our non-Muslim community here in Toronto.
We started the new project in May 2005 to buy the existing Masjid and Islamic Education Centre and we are now engaged in fund raising activities within the community. Up until June 2009 we had collected $70,000 and in 2010 started contacting all the Masajid around Toronto and all over Ontario for raising donations. Alhamdulillah by June 2014 we have collected so far $500,000 and still needs $350,000 to complete the project.
As our community has already embarked on this noble project, we would like to humbly request your assistance towards this divine cause keeping in mind the great rewards promised by our merciful creator for those who help build a Masjid for his sake.
Please DONATE generously to help us complete the Masjid project. May Allah reward you in this world and the hereafter!
Many of our programs are supported by dedicated volunteers and generous contributors that who help us in making many of these programs possible.
We look forward to your continued contributions - whether it is your valuable time to assist our volunteers or by financially supporting the Masjid because there is no greater satisfaction than the feeling of helping those who need it the most.
Insha’ Allah, future plans include facilities for funeral services and a full time school for Muslim children which will incorporate the Ontario ministry of education curriculum along with Islamic studies.
You can find out about our study circles, tutoring services and attend programs being conducted by Imam Ayoub.
