Our Methods

The Association firmly believes that the most optimal path forward for the Muslim Community and Islamic work in Canada is through the education, improvement, and training of each individual Muslim, each Muslim family and each local Muslim community. The path of education and self-development is a long and arduous path. Yet, we believe, based on our reading of the life of the Prophet and an understanding of Muslim history, that there is no alternative to this sometimes slow and painstaking endeavor.

The basic unit through which education and self-development takes place is the Usrah (Arabic for family). The Usrah is a small group of individuals who meet regularly and go through a graduated study program. This also include discussions of local issues, charitable events, as well as community challenges and opportunities.
