Islamic Information

Our centre in downtown Ottawa, is inviting the general public to understand Islam. We provide a resource centre for government agencies, the media, academic institutions and religious groups. We can sponsor public lectures at universities, high schools or even faith based organizations. By the grace of God we have been effective in counseling and assisting inmates at detention centres and providing them with Islamic resources. We supply public libraries with Islamic books; and offer books and material to non-Muslims. Our easy accessibility, every day of the week, makes us the first stop for anyone seeking information regarding Islam.

Seniors

A rare aspect of manners that we find today in general society is respect for the elderly and those who are senior to us. As society progresses in many different avenues, it is unfortunate that manner’s in people are slowly disintegrating; especially for the youth. This is evident in the media and everyday lives of people. Seniors are not receiving the respect they deserve and elder abuse cases are on a sharp rise. Islam Care Centre wishes to ensure that as Myslims, we are under an obligation from our Lord to treat the elderly with kindness, respect and generosity.

God says in the Qur’an “Your Lord has commanded that you worship none but Him, and that you be kind to your parents. If one or both of them reach old age with you, do not say to them a word of disrespect, or scold them, but say a generous word to them. And act humbly to them in mercy, and say, ‘My Lord, have mercy on them, since they cared for me when I was small (17: 23-24).” In this key passage in the Qur’an, we see that it is a commandment from god to be kind to our parents and disrespect towards them is prohibited.

Often we tend to abandon our beloved youth in times which they are most in need with the notion that they must learn to be independent.
