01Short History about Halton Islamic Association

HIA is a charitable organization. The Halton Islamic Association (HIA) was established as a charitable organization in the late ’80s with the goal of building a Masjid (a place of worship and religious education) for the Muslim community in the city of Burlington. Through the hard work and dedication of the community, the Masjid was built in the early ’90s and has since served as a beacon of light offering a variety of religious and educational services.

02About ‘Rahmah Islamic Centre’

Alhamdolelah the Muslim Community in the city of Burlington is continuing to grow, with an estimated Muslim community of 5,000 individuals. As such the Halton Islamic Association needs to grow to accommodate the needs of the community. Our current Masjid has a capacity of 250 Musaleen, we currently serve over a 1500 Musaleen every Jumu’ah by holding multiple Jumu’ah prayers and renting facilities to accommodate the numbers. Because of our limited space all of our programs have a long waiting list specially for our Children and youth Quran classes.

Alhamullelah, we have purchased 4.1 acres of land in the North of Burlington, that is 4 times the size of our current Masjid land. We are working diligently with the city of Burlington to complete the necessary applications to enable us to build an Islamic Center. Alhamdolelah, so far we have gotten our Rezoning and Site Plan applications approved to allow for a place of worship to be built. This put us in a position to in’sha’Allah start digging in 2023. 

The new centre will in’sha’Allah be called The ‘Rahmah Islamic Centre’ ( مسجد الرحمة ) and it will in’sha’Allah house a large prayer hall with a capacity of 750 Musaleen, a large parking lot with 260 parking spots. A school with 11 classrooms, a large gym for our youth activities, a banquet hall for our community gatherings as well as outside play areas and courts.

Alhamdolelah the land is strategically located within walking distance of where we are seeing the largest growth of Muslim population. This will in’sha’Allah enable our visitors to walk to the centre and actively participate on our daily activities. 

In’sha’Allah, we are planning to build the Rahmah Center in phases to manage the cost with a total estimated cost of $12M. 

Alhamdolelah as of August 2022, we have raised $3.2M towards the necessary funds for the project and we have pledges from our community for $2M. 

We are working hard to be in a position to apply for the building permit by May 2023 and to start the construction by August 2023.   

We ask Allah (swt) to accept our efforts and enable us to build the Rahmah Islamic Centre in the near future. 

We encourage you to review the project’s latest Drawings and to Donate Generously.
