[SMA Announcement] Musallah Expansion

BismillahirRahmanirRaheem

Assalamualaikum WRWB,

Dear SMA community,

Alhumdulillah, we are happy to announce that SMA has signed the lease for Unit C which is the building parallel and facing the current SMA Musallah. This will allow us to expand our capacity for Jumma prayers and Taraweh prayers. Furthermore, this new space will be used as a flex space to run community and educational programs Insha’Allah. We are open to welcoming more volunteers to run programs for sisters and seniors such as book clubs or social circles, and health lectures. Jazak Allah Khair for your continuing monthly donations to SMA that make it possible for us to rent the space for our growing SMA community.

Salam.

SMA Musallah Campaign 2021

CHARITABLE STATUS

We are pleased to announce, that by the blessings of Allah SWT, the Stittsville Muslim Association (SMA) application for charitable status has been now been APPROVED.  Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) # 78386 2279 RR0001.

Al-Hamdulillah, with your support, SMA has reached yet another important milestone, following the recent establishment of a community Musallah earlier in the fall.  Currently, SMA is working towards full adherence to all CRA requirements, Insha’Allah.

CALL TO ACTION

Now we need your generous support to RAISE the necessary funds to cover our monthly fixed costs (including rent, bills, snow removal etc) to allow SMA to continue to offer services and grow.  Currently, we have approximately 1/3rd of our fixed monthly costs (~$1000) covered by generous monthly donors of the community, but we need your help to raise the remaining funds (total of $2000 additional monthly donations needed or $50,000 in total donations to cover the remaining fixed costs for the next year, Insha’Allah).

Please VISIT our website: www.stittsvillemuslims.ca to find out more about ways to donate (Paypal one-time/monthly, e-transfer, cheque or cash) and also on how to become a registered SMA member.  Remember, if you donate before December 31st, you can maximize your annual charitable donation for this year and up to $40% of your donation can be returned on your income tax return by claiming tax receipts!
