The Al Rashid Muslim community celebrates a century of achievements, contributing to the life and cultural fabric of the city of Edmonton in the province of Alberta, Canada.
Al Rashid has the honour and privilege to be the first mosque built in Canada. The original Al Rashid mosque opened in 1938 and is preserved as a historical site in Fort Edmonton Park.
The history of Al Rashid is one of welcoming and openness. Al Rashid shares daily with its neighbors while serving its members through religious and social services.
The Al Rashid community today follows in the proud tradition and hard work of its pioneer generations. We are establishing innovative institutions and programs that serve community members at every stage of their lives both today and into the future.
