Islamic Circle of North America – Canada
The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) Canada is a leading Canadian Muslim organization with chapters in all major Canadian cities. It is dedicated to the betterment of society through the application of Islamic values. Since its inception, ICNA has worked to build relations between communities by devoting itself to education, outreach, social services, and relief efforts.
ICNA Canada is a non-ethnic, non-sectarian, independent, a grassroots level national organization. ICNA elects its leadership through an election process and all its decisions are made through the process of consultation.
ICNA Canada’s vision is to build an exemplary Muslim community in Canada – A community that sets path towards personal excellence in faith, worship and morality and shares basis for the moral, social, and economic development of the Canadian Society.
Striving for this vision would help us achieve our goal that is to seek the pleasure of Allah (SWT) by total submission to Him and through the propagation of true and universal message of Islam, which was revealed by Allah (SWT) in the last book, “Al-Qur’an” and through His last messenger, Muhammad (SAW).
The propagation of the true and universal message of Islam is only possible in Canada when whole Canadian Muslim Community transformed into a Dawah community by practicing and propagating the true Islamic Way of Life.
With the vision of building an exemplary Canadian Muslim community, it is very important to spread the word of Islam, develop those who accept to walk along, create an effective team of these people and extend our hands to help all humankind without any bias.
This transforms into following four mandated roles that are necessary to realize our vision.
- Dawah and Outreach
- Learning and Development (Tarbiyah)
- Services to Humanity
