The Scarborough Muslim Association is a Non-profit, registered charity located in the centre of Scarborough (East Toronto) where over 140,000 Muslims have settled and the Muslim population is growing rapidly. It provides the following services to Muslims since 1984: Daily five times prayer Fridays, Eidain, Taraveeh congregational prayers (over 2000 Muslims attend our congregational prayers), Islamic School teaching Muslim children Quranic recitation, Hifzul Quran, Aahadith and moral Islamic values, Family and youth counselling, Dawah programs, Marriage and funeral services. All of the above programs and services are conducted at the existing building which was purchased in 1992 with two acres of land. In order to meet the growing needs of the Muslim community, the management has planned to demolish the existing old and small building and construct a new mosque and school building with bigger facilities to provide better services to Muslims as following: A bigger prayer facility to accommodate over 3,000 Musallis (separate prayer hall for sisters), a full time Islamic School for academic and religious teaching, full funereal and burial services, a large Islamic library, multi purpose hall for community services, and youth development programs throughout the year.
