Parkdale Islamic Education Centre - Hamza Masjid
Eid Salaat at 9.00am (Saturday) at Hamza Masjid -
1287 Queen Street West Toronto, ON M6K1L6
There have been NO confirmed sightings of the new crescent in the parameters of the Hilal Committee on the eve of Thursday July 16th, 2015 (29th Ramadan 1436), therefore the Hilal Committee of the GTA officially declares 30 days of the blessed month of Ramadan. The 1st of Shawwal (Eidul Fitr) will be on Saturday July 18, 2015.
Fitra Zakat is: $5 DOLLARS- Starts the middle of Ramadan till Salatul EID.
Alhamdulillah the Parkdale Islamic Education Centre (PIEC) was completely established for nonprofit purposes. Masha-Allah the Muslim population in this area has considerably grown and now is the time to build our own masjid. As such, we should all put our hands together to start this divine project as the Masjid building is currently on rent.
This is an urgent appeal at a time when Masjid Hamza needs your help the most. The Masjid is short
$175,000 of the required $1.2 million to purchase the current building. Because of the real estate
boom in the Parkdale area and the soaring prices here, if we do not come up with these funds by the
closing date of July 31, 2015, we will lose the opportunity to purchase the masjid for good.
We ask Allah for help, and we also reach out to you, our generous donor, to help us in these pivotal
few months. Please remember the promise of the Prophet (may Allah send His peace and blessings
upon him completely), that Sadaqah does not decrease a believer’s wealth at all. In fact, Sadaqah is
simply a transfer of funds from your Dunya account to your Akhirah account. Please consider making
the most profitable investment of your life and help build the House of Allah. InshAllah through
Sadaqah, Allah will increase your wealth, put Barakah in your dealings, repel calamities in your life,
raise your ranks, and write you among the generous. InshAllah He will also give you reward for every
good deed committed in our new masjid.
The management of Masjid Hamza has always treated donations and loans to the masjid as a very
serious trust. Every penny is accounted for. Every penny goes towards the masjid. And every
transaction is publicly available for review. We understand the trust of your wealth. And we promise
you honesty, integrity and transparency.
To begin with, we are urgently seeking 650 people who can donate $500 each. This donation can be
given in five instalments between March and July 2015.
This is an opportunity to make a difference for Muslims. Giving Muslims a permanent place to pray is
one of the noblest deeds. Please donate generously.
You can mail a cheque payable to “Parkdale Islamic Education Centre”. OR mail a void cheque with
installment details for direct withdrawal. OR mail your credit card information with installment
details. OR visit our website at www.hamzamasjid.com to donate via PayPal. OR visit us in person at
1287 Queen St. W.
May Allah bless you!
