Al Rashid offers our community an array of religious and social programs. We pride ourselves with our ability to fund and sponsor different ages in learning Quran and Islamic studies. Religious, social, and athletic youth programs are available for Muslim youth in our Mosque. Seniors are able to call the Mosque their home and use it as a hub for activates that improves their wellbeing. Other programs include Dawa, Interfaith, and tours to fellow Canadian citizens.
Raising a generation of Muslim Canadians was and always has been a priority in our mandate; thus we invested largely in education. This resulted in one of the strongest webs of interconnected Islamic institutions that cater to children from birth to post-secondary education. AREF offers Muslim student’s scholarships to encourage and support them in pursuing them their college education.
As the needs are growing, we are setting the vision for sustainable and holistic community growth and development. We are using a comprehensive approach to build people and institutions to ensure the success of the Muslim community in Canada. After building ARCA and Edmonton Islamic Childcare our future large projects include a Grand Mosque, Seniors and Wellness Centre, Family Social Services, and much more.
The Mosque staff and facility offers a place of worship to over 3000 people a week. Quran, Hadith, Dawa, and Arabic lessons are available to wide variety of ages to enable community members to pursue their Islamic studies in a safe and vibrant environment. With over three hundred volunteers, seventy programs geared towards kids, youth, seniors, and everything in between; Al Rashid was shaped into a community hub that many calls a home.
