Empowering Our Mosques, Empowering Our Community

Alhmadulillah, we have raised over $1,500,000 so far. We need another $3,000,000 for the next payment installation. We are very close!

We are lucky to have a payment schedule that will help us stay away from incurring Riba, aka interest. The next step is securing $3M by April 2025 for the second phase of the payment. After that we have $1M in April 2026 and the last $3M in April 2028.

Chip in with whatever you can. This will be a Saqada Jariyah (ongoing charity) for you insha’Allah. We have a short time to collect the funds so that we don’t lose this property that will help keep our community strong and grow it in the many years to come.

We can’t do this alone, we need your help.

About Guildford Islamic Cultural Centre

About

The necessity of establishing a worship Place in Guildford was felt in June 2008, and with the sincere efforts of a few brothers, a place was in Guildford Library to cater for brothers to attend Jumuah prayers. It was realized that a permanent place was required to have daily prayers establish in the area. Due to increase of members in October 2008 one of the brothers kindly vacated his office situated upstairs at 209-10222 152 Street Surrey and also generously contributed toward the rent. May Allah (SWT) reward him for his generosity. A musallah was established.

By the will of ALLAH (SWT) the community kept growing in Guildford. In the month of Ramadhan last year it was realized that we needed to move to a bigger location. As there were many brothers attending taraweeh prayers at the musallah and it was felt that it is becoming hard to accommodate the community in Salaat ul Jumuah (Friday Prayers) in existing Musallah.

A few brothers took an initiative and started search for place with adequate space to accommodate the increasing community. Guildford Islamic Cultural Center (GICC) was formed and registered. The objective of GICC was acquiring a place of worship of our own. After going through many properties around the area we were not able to get what we were looking for. In the meantime there was an urgent need for the Musallah to move, as by earlier this year we were not able to accommodate for brothers coming for Jumuah.

However this property at 101 15290 103A Avenue was up for lease and after Mashwara it was decided to lease the building. The musallah was shifted in March 2014, to new Location at 101-15290 103 A Ave Surrey BC. GICC management has still a task to meet with the regular payment of monthly rent, allied expense and above all renovation cost which is mandatory to make it workable.

By the grace of Allah (SWT) we have completed our renovations. Many of our brothers generously helped in this course. Since moving from 700 ft² location to 1900 ft² we are now able to accommodate about 250 people. Alhamdulillah now five times daily prayers is observed. This year Tarawih prayers will be observed Insha’Allah.

GICC is looking to serve about 250 families living in the vicinity of the Musallah. Now that the renovation is completed the next phase is establishment of a maktab. This will require us to acquire the services of a qualified teacher. Adult education classes are also being considered to be established. There are also plans to have our youth involved in the community. Once the lease expires in 2019 our long term goal is to establish a masjid with a madrassa in the area.

We request you for your generous support towards achieving our goals.
