The aim of Learn More About Islam, OMA, is to help the Canadian Muslim community, and new Muslims, to grow in faith and spirituality, while at the same time lead productive lives, away from all forms of extremism and radicalism. We deem it necessary to build bridges of understanding and peaceful co-existence with fellow human beings, irrespective of their background or belief. Learn More About Islam intends to be a reliable online informative reference on Islam’s Articles of Faith as well as its Pillars such as the concept of God, Qur’an, the Prophets, Prayer, Fasting, Hajj, Zakah, family and relationships, Islam and the world, and many more.
The Ottawa Mosque (OMA) is the first mosque in Ottawa and one of the very first in Canada. It has its history and is rooted deep within the community. Its location and heritage place it at the heart of the city where almost every Muslim in Ottawa had memories with its schools, Imams and diverse programs. Your donation will keep the glory of its heritage going strong and will enable the mosque to perform its duties and provide the services needed by the community, a community growing up in numbers every year. Our monthly operational costs are $20k, covering our facilities and ongoing programs but that does not tell the entire story. The yearly Zakat distribution is over $70K which helps the most deserving in our community through our dedicated staff and volunteers. Jazakom Allah Khairan for your donations to your mosque, your contribution is vital to our constant growth!
