Sayyidah Zainab Muslim Community Centre and Masjid (SZMCC) was established on the blessed day of Jum’atul Wida’ Ramadan 23rd, 1439 under the guidance of Professor Imam Syed Badiuddin Soharwardy. SZMCC and all its affiliates adhere to the creed of Ahl-us-Sunnah wa-Al-Jama’ah, following the traditions of A’la Hazrat Imam Ahmed Raza Khan Brelvi (Rahmatullah Alaih) and Hazrat Allama Syed Muhammad Riyazuddin Soharwardy (Rahmatullah Alaih).
A project by Toronto Chapter of Islamic Supreme Council of Canada
Alhamdulillah, on the blessed day of Jum’atul Wida’ Ramadan 23rd, 1439 the ownership of the property for Ajax Mosque – Sayyidah Zainab (AS) Muslim Community Centre has been transferred to our Charity. Congratulations to the Muslim Community of Ajax and the GTA. This is now Masjid and Muslim Community Centre for ever, Insha Allah. We need to raise over $20,000 per month to run this project. We are looking for your generous support in the form of loans, donations and in- kind assistance.
Those who (in charity) spend of their goods by night and by day, in secret and in public, have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
– (Al Quran 2:274)
Alhamdulillah, After Launching Several Masajids And Community Projects In Canada, The Experienced Team Of Islamic Supreme Council Of Canada Is Now Planning To Setup Another Community Hub That Will Offer A Variety Of Core And Auxiliary Services To The Muslims And Residents Of Ajax, And The Surrounding Communities.
For Muslims, building a mosque or contributing towards it, is one of the most virtuous forms of Sadaqah Jariyah (continuous charity) that Allah SWT has bestowed upon us. Sadaqah Jariyah will benefit the donor long after they have died. We pray that you will take up this opportunity to invest in your Aakhira (the afterlife).
When a person dies, then his good deeds stop except for three: a Sadaqah Jariyah, a beneficial knowledge, or a righteous child who prays for that person.
– (Sahih Muslim)
In addition to being a Masjid, the proposed centre will also be providing various community services, regardless of religious denominations. This is a unique project where the focus will be Insha Allah on the community’s needs as opposed to being just a Masjid. In addition to having the opportunity to help build a house of Allah, it also gives you the option of supporting the community at large. Therefore, any forms of donations (sadaqah, zakah, fitra, etc.) will be applicable.
