Madina Canada is the Canadian chapter of a global initiative that is built upon the foundations of compassion, education, and illumination. We currently have active operations in South Africa, USA, UK, Malaysia, Norway, Sweden, Mauritius, India, Sudan, among others. We prioritize the Qur’an and the authentic, Prophetic Sunnah, and we teach them through a traditional approach that is sensitive to our contemporary context. We are dedicated to meeting the social, educational, and spiritual needs of Canadians.

- Seminary and institute for advanced Islamic education & research
- Youth leadership and empowerment

- Canadian cultural awareness
- Interfaith dialogue
- Celebrating Canadian diversity
- Planet Mercy Canada (humanitarian wing of Madina Canada)
EMPOWERING & EDUCATION OUR MUSLIM YOUTH
There is a need for modern Canadian imams, scholars, and leaders. As our Muslim youth assimilate with the Canadian culture, the typical methods of Islamic teaching and outreach do not work anymore. Do we have the right to complain if our youth are not interested in attending Islamic seminars, classes, and programs if we do not offer any youth friendly options? Can you blame the youth for wanting to hang out with their friends at restaurants and lounges over strict Islamic institutions? For this reason, it is essential to offer programs and activities that appeal to the youth – programs that will make the youth want to come and learn. Join us as we work to empower and educate our Canadian Muslim youth according to the teachings of the Qur’an and authentic Sunnah!

REVIVE THE AUTHENTIC SUNNAH AND PROPHETIC VISION

Amr ibn Awf reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said [which can be translated as],
“Know that whoever revives my practice when it has died out after me will have a reward similar to those who act upon it without detracting from his reward in the slightest, and whoever innovates misguidance displeasing to Allah and His messenger will have a sin similar to those who act upon it without detracting from their sins in the slightest.”
Abdullah ibn Amr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said [which can be translated as],
“Those who are merciful will be shown mercy by the Most Merciful. Be merciful to those on the earth and the One in the heavens will have mercy upon you.”
In another narration, the Prophet ﷺ said [which can be translated as],
“Be merciful to the people of the earth and the One in the heavens will have mercy upon you.”
Madina Seminary strives to spread Illumination through Compassion and Education.
