As Muslims, we know that our mosques are not only places of worship but also centers of community life. They have been there for us in times of joy and times of hardship, providing us with a safe space to come together and support one another. However, due to the long-lasting effects of COVID-19 many mosques continue to struggle to keep their doors open and their services.

This is where we, as a community, can make a difference. By giving Sadaqah and donations to support our mosques, we can ensure that they continue to be a source of strength and unity for us. Even a small donation can go a long way in helping to pay for the upkeep of the mosque and the programs and services it offers.

Giving back to our community is a way of fulfilling our religious obligations and showing gratitude for the blessings that Allah has bestowed upon us. It is also a way of investing in our community's future and ensuring that future generations have access to the same support and resources that we have had. So that like us, our children may also find the solace we have found within the walls of our masajid. 

So let us come together and support our mosques and each other. Every contribution counts. Let us remember the vital role that our masajid have played in our lives and make a commitment to help ensure that they continue to thrive.

Donate your Sadaqah Jariyah to support your local Masjid in'sha Allah.

About Ottawa Muslim Association

Our Story

The story of the Ottawa Mosque starts in the 1940s with the first few Muslim families in Ottawa. Surrounded by a different and new environment, the families sought to strengthen Islamic values and understanding in their children, as well as maintain their cultural awareness. To this end, the community rented out the basement of Northwestern United Church every Sunday to teach Quran, Islamic studies, and Arabic to the children, and then share a meal together.

As the community grew, the need for a Mosque in the city of Ottawa became prominent. While different options for locations and lands for this Mosque were considered, the two houses on Northwestern Avenue came with the wonderful benefit of remaining near our longtime friends and neighbors, United Church. And so, the Ottawa Mosque, the first in Ottawa and one of the first in Canada, was constructed in 1970.

The Pillars of our Community

Who We Are

Our Vision

The Association is a non-profit and registered charity that was founded in 1965 with the purpose of strengthening fraternal bonds and brotherly relations among Muslims by acting as the focal point of the Muslim Community in the National Capital Region.

Our Mission

We shall work to establish and maintain the Muslim community within Canada by providing prayer and religious services, facilitating the learning of Islamic knowledge, providing social services, as well as operating and maintaining the Ottawa Mosque.
