This organization does not represent any political organization, does not belong to any Da’wa group or sect, and does not follow blindly any Madthhab, but rather follows with knowledge the clear guidance of the Qur’aan and Sunnah and follow the understanding of the Companions of the Prophet and their followers. Our Goals are clear, our way is Noble, and our will is great Inshallah. We ask Allah SWT to make our efforts pure for Him and accepted by Him. We also ask Him to make our efforts of great benefit to our beloved Muslim community in Calgary contributing to the strengthening of the Ummah of Muhammed and calling mankind to the light of Allah.
