About Kitchener Masjid
Kitchener Masjid is the largest Mosque in Kitchener serving a large and diverse Muslim community. Today, hundreds of people each week make use of Kitchener Masjid to perform the five daily prayers and the congregational Friday prayer. The Masjid is open for 7 days a week with staff on site to service the facility and welcome the visitors. The mosque also hosts community events, a Quran school for kids, and lectures for various segments of our community. It is located at 1017 Victoria St. N right across from the Home Hardware and Canadian Tire.
To establish a permanent Islamic presence in downtown Toronto with a mosque and facilities to meet the religious, social and intellectual needs of Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
We envision a time when:
- The prevalent understanding of Islam is one of balance, constructive engagement, and relevance to life.
- The understanding of Islam and Islamic values are commonplace in Canadian society and Islam and Muslims are not perceived as alien;
- Muslims are well represented in various aspects of Canadian society including the social, legal, and political circles, as well as the media; and
- MAC is at the forefront in articulating this vision, developing leadership, mobilizing grassroots, and offering institutional services in the community.
