QUOTE FROM QURAN
“The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.”
(Holy Qur’an, Chapter 2, Verse 261)
“Beware, verily on the friends of Allah, there is no fear, nor shall they grieve.”
Islamic Association of Western Canada (IAWC) is a non-profit, registered charitable organization and was established in September 2012. We are dedicated to serving society by promoting the accepted understanding of Islam with its spiritual teachings, civil concepts, and moral values, all directed towards serving humanity.
IAWC believes that Muslims should interact positively with all elements of society; to reflect, project, and convey the true message of Islam in an unblemished form.
IAWC works to build and sustain hope by encouraging Muslims to participate proactively in the Canadian Society, to make the most of the many legitimate avenues available and to function positively to become fruitful citizens of Canada.
IAWC supports charitable work in its wide spheres, beginning with local issues like homelessness, senior assistance, disaster relief efforts, supporting the vulnerable of youth, etc., and extending to a global charity.
INVEST IN THE FUTURE OF OUR COMMUNITY
By supporting the Masjid Aulia Allah with your generosity, you will be supporting our community and youth and helping to build the future of Muslim Canadians. Our Community, and especially our youth need a supportive environment for their education, socializing, and religious enhancement. The Masjid will offer us all the opportunity to experience Islam in its comprehensiveness. Together we are cultivating a generation of Muslim youth who value Islam, are proud to be Muslim, and feel welcomed and valued in their community.
