Abu Huraira Center Story

OUR STORY

Abu Huraira is nearing its home stretch of it's grande vision. We started off as just an idea in 1995, by 1998 we rented our first 1500 ft2 facility, and today- 25 years later we are now operating 2 centers over 63,000 ft2 by the grace of Allah and then through your generous donations and support.

When we first purchased the building at 270 Yorkland blvd in 2006 we had a small community. Only a few lines for Jummah, small classes during the halaqas and a relatively small congregation in contrast to the size of the center. But quickly the word and khair spread and in a short time we found ourselves breaking down walls and barriers to accommodate our growing community. In a span of a few short years, the center was thriving and capacity had reached its maximum threshold. People were praying in the hallways and at times, even outside the masjid during Friday prayers. With that, the needs of the community grew as well. Qur'an classes for all ages were created, classes for students of knowledge were created and even a full time Islamic school was created. The center became vibrant and full of events and activities accommodating the needs of the community of all ages. At one point, plans were drawn to build on top of the center, but that quickly vaporized due to the concerns of our neighbours. So we remained patient, until Allah facilitated another option. The very building next door to us became open for purchase. Our management team quickly consolidated and put forward an action plan to purchase the building next door to accommodate the growing needs of our community. Alhamdulillah, by Allah's permission and then with the help of the community, we began the purchasing process of the building next door.

HOW WE PURCHASED 280

In 2019, we completed the purchase of the building located at 280 Yorkland BLVD. The building cost $8.8 million and with the help of the community we raised an interest free loan (Qard Al Hassan) from the community of $3 million dollars in order to help with the purchase of the building next door. To date, we have paid back $2.5 million of the $3 million. What remains is $500,000. Quite honestly, we believe we would have paid this loan off earlier. But the COVID situation and the lock downs has made it extremely difficult for our center to not only pay off the loan, but to keep up with operating costs. This center was purchased because of the growing needs of the community as well as accommodating the future needs of the community. So let us all help out, however big or small by donating any amount that we can afford to pay this loan off and give people their rights back. Jazakum’Allahu khairan wa barakalahu feekum.

  • MOST OF THE INTEREST FREE LOAN IS PAID OFF

    Alhamdullillah only $500,000 remains from the $3 million loan.

  • DIFFICULTY IN RAISING FUNDS

    The Covid 19 situation in addition to the lock downs has made it extremely difficult to paying off the interest free loan.

  • NEEDS HAD TO BE MET

    With growing needs of the community, maximum capacity of building 270 being met, we had no choice but to purchase 280 Yorkland BLVD.

OUR COLLECTIVE BENEFIT

    From 1,500 ft2 in 1998 to 63,0000 ft2 in 2019, our center has grown by 41x in the last two decades.
