The relationship between Shaykh Muqbil and Shaykh Rabee’ was a tower of strength. They did not allow the people to separate them.
Established in Jan '04 - By the grace of Allaah, the majestic, the 5000 sq. ft. facility was established and has paved the way for the first salafee centre in Toronto as well as all classes, seminars, services and events connected to all projects.
The Launch of Masjidul-Furqaan & Islaamic Centre
Iin 2004, the da’wah centre continued to grow in its activities. By the Grace of Allaah, a new facility was opened which is more than thirty times the size of the previous location and will enable ahlus-sunnah to host the salaawat, khutbatul-jumu’ah, duroos, tele-links and various other events, free from tribulation, wal-hamdulilaah. During the last four years (2004-2007), the establishment of a masjid upon the manhaj of the salaf has been a tremendous benefit to the local and regional community. It has allowed the pure da'wah of ahlus-sunnah wal-jama'aah to be propogated without hinderence, from the highlights during this period are
a) Islamic Seminars (Approx. 2-3 a year, the most prominent of them being 'The Khawaarij, A Legacy of Evil & The Hallmarks of Ahlus-Sunnah (Anti-Terrorism conf.) 2006, The Path to Paradise (with the mashaayikh from Yemen) 2006, and the Islamic Summer Course (six week course) 2007
b) Regular Classes for Children and Adults
c) Islaam.ca (2006) - A dedicated site introducing Islam to the non-Muslim reader
d) The Establishment of Khutbatul-Jumu'ah
e) The Establishment of the 'Eedayn
In general, the ability to convey the moderate and balanced da'wah of ahlus-sunnah, the manhaj of the salaf without harm has opened up the doors to much khayr and has served as a stablising point for the community after much hardship, as Allaah said,
So verily, with the hardship, there is relief, (Ash-Sharh 94:5)
Truly this is a great success, a blessing from Allaah and a testament to the hard work of the local and international community. We thank Allaah, the giver of Mercy for this great blessing, we thank our noble brothers and sisters for their du'aa and their support and we ask Allaah to plant our feet firm upon this noble salafee manhaj, ever-loving to please and obey Allaah, clinging firmly to the kibaarul-'ulamaa - the inheritors of the Prophets, always hating innovation and it's callers, and we ask Allaah to keep our hearts pure, loving unity, hating division and always putting forth the best intentions, wal-hamdulillaahir-rabbil-'Aalimeen.
