Please Donate To Masjid Donation Campaign

Religious facilities have closed for daily prayers and programs to comply with government lockdown orders. The masjid’s Board of Directors are starting a new campaign for the month of December to ask for the community’s financial assistance during this month.

Bearing in mind that Allah (SWT) recalls in Surah Tawbah, verse 18: “The mosques of Allah are maintained by those who believe in Allah and the Last Day“.

Our monthly expenses at the Mosque are approximately $7,500.

If you experience technical troubles, please email (info at bictoronto dot com) and we will try to resolve problems ASAP Insha’Allah.

  • Update Monday March 23, 2020: Lecture by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi, including dua for protection.

Assalamu Aleykum wa Rahmatu Allah,

Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri and Abu Huraira:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “No fatigue, nor disease, nor sorrow, nor sadness, nor hurt, nor distress befalls a Muslim, even if it were the prick he receives from a thorn, but that Allah expiates some of his sins for that.

The Bosnian Islamic Centre is faced with making an extremely critical decision in these dire times.  The safety of our community is of utmost importance and we are making decisions guided by the best advice of our Islamic scholars as well as the medical experts in the field of infectious diseases.

Based on the most recent information available to us we are making the difficult decision to suspend all congregational prayers for the public at our masjid, commencing this afternoon, until further notice.

We encourage all community members to follow the guidelines of public health officials and the scholarly opinions to remain at home in order to limit the spread of the highly contagious Covid-19 virus.

May Allah SWT protect our community and all of humanity from any harm and bless us with health and strength in our emaan.
