Downpayment for Sayyidah Zainab Muslim Community Centre
Organized by: Sayyidah Zainab
With dozens of masjids in the GTA (Alhumdulillah) it’s no surprise that hearing of another masjid almost brings a strain to your face. However, we must acknowledge the lack of community centers targeting the large muslim community in the GTA, particularly the Scarborough region. We would like to bridge this gap in the community by bringing you much needed services! The Islamic Supreme Council of Canada is planning to launch another mega project - Sayyidah Zainab Muslim Community Centre. It will offer a variety of core and auxiliary services to the Muslims and residents of Greater Toronto Area and the surrounding communities. We are in the process of purchasing a property located at 3474 Kingston Rd (Intersection of Markham and Kingston Road). It is a two story building already zoned as a place of worship with a total area of 41,600 square feet. Sayyidah Zainab Muslim Community Centre will offer many necessary services including: - Counselling - Daily Prayers - New Comer Assistance - Educational Programs (Islamic School, weekend classes, fulltime Hifdh) - Youth Camp - Matrimonial Services - Community Based Employment Assistance - Youth Camps - Food Bank - Free Tax Clinics - Hajj Services - Interfaith Dialogue - Gymnasium The total purchase price is $3.65 Million with a closing date on November 4, 2016. We have already made an initial deposit and now aiming to raise $1.5 Million by November 4, 2016, with an immediate need of $250,000. The remaining $2.15 Million will be financed and paid in installments over a period of next few years. A place for kids to play, youth to engage, elders to congregate and everyone to call home. Join us in making this mission a reality!
