Our Mission

Our goal is to make Calgary a model for other Islamic cities in North America, by focusing on the youth we hope to develop strong leaders with a proper Islamic background that will begin their own projects that will take care of the various needs of the community.

We also hope to develop our activities in a fashion that can be easily duplicated by other communities so that we can become the standard for excellence in North America and even the world.
