The building is over 5,400 square feet and sits on over half an acre of valuable land with great exposure and access, located along a major transit route and near ample public space, schools, and the local community center. It has been owned by Fairview Baptist Church and is a perfect fit for our congregation, with large prayer halls, a library, a meeting room, and a full kitchen. The recent addition of a wheelchair ramp, accessible washroom, and elevator makes the building accessible for all age groups and mobility needs. Its efficient design and full concrete floors on both levels offer our community long-term stability and growth potential.

Questions & Answers Why do we need a masjid in the Calgary Southeast? For the past decade, the Muslim population in Calgary has been exponentially increasing. With this new building, not only will we fulfil the need for a masjid in the area, but we will also serve the Muslim community of the entire city for many generations to come, in-shaa-Allah. This is the first masjid for the Southeast community in Calgary. I donated to the previous masjid & waq'f projects. What happened to those funds? 100% of your donations from the previous masjid projects are reallocated towards the Fairview Southeast Masjid purchase. Also, we assure you that all current donations are solely used to secure Southeast Masjid ownership. When we reach surplus donations, IISC will only employ those donations for renovations and future enhancements of the masjid. How can I financially support the masjid purchase? To see the fruition of this noble project, we require support from everyone in our communities. To complete the purchase, we accept donations regardless of the amount, small or large, one-time or regular instalments. You can financially support the purchase of the Fairview Masjid by any of the following methods: Use a credit card/PayPal online (once or monthly) using the iisc.ca website ("Donate Now") By writing a personal cheque(s) By sending a bank draft or money order By pre-authorized withdrawals (one-time or monthly) By a wire transfer (contact us for the wire transfer details) By Interac e-transfer (Canadian banks) to email@example.com Cash can be dropped off at any of the safes inside your nearest IISC location Please don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions or inquiries.
