Insha’Allah our annual Ramadan fundraising event is scheduled for Good Friday on April 7, 2023 during the Friday prayers at 1:00 PM. The Muslim Society of Guelph has been working hard to serve the community in Guelph and surrounding area. Allah has blessed us so much and enabled us in 2012 to get a great space (elementary school building) and to convert part of it into a masjid in addition to Montessori and Islamic school to serve our community. Allah is always with us through great times and tough times. We are excited about the expansion of our building and how it will affect the lives of more and more people for many years to come. We are seeing our future building filled with people in various activities. Alhamdulillah, the phase II (current phase) of the construction project is well underway. We have successfully completed several milestones since the last Ramadan. However, due to the ongoing pandemic and higher inflation the cost has increased significantly. We are requesting your prayers and support to realize the long awaited dream of building the first ever masjid from ground up in Guelph.
Current & upcoming Construction Cost:
- Steel Structure: $145K (4th payment)
- Concrete n forming: $55K
- Stairs: $158K
- Elevator: 45K (3rd payment)
- Coreslab: 27K (final payment)
- Walls to close the building: $515K

Assalaam o Alaikum
Can we have a tab on donation page where is someone wants to setup daily recurring donation in month of Ramada to get rewards everyday?

We are working with the provider to make that available at the machines. However, we do have it available via PayPal.
