Part-time Islamic Studies 2018 kicks off!
#MadinaCanada‘s first weekend for the Part-time Islamic Studies (Usul-ud-Din) Program welcomed our new group of students, our future leaders, as we dove right into our Arabic intensive. Taught by Madina alumnus, these first couple of classes showed how much students can progress in just 10 months, from novices to students of knowledge who are capable of passing on their knowledge.
We welcomed students with welcome packages and insight on why there is a need for knowledge in our current times.
Next class will feature Shaykh Dr. Muhammad bin Yahya al-Husayni al-Ninowy الشيخ د. محمد النينوي covering Aqeedah Al-Tahiwiyyah, equipping students with knowledge essential to our faith.
Comparative Law Analysis with Fulbright Fellow J.R. Rothstein (UofT) and Shaykh Ibrahim Hussain
Madina Seminary, with Shaykh Ibrahim Hussain, is working with Fulbright Fellow J.R. Rothstein during his term as a visiting scholar at the University of Toronto to engage in a comparative law analysis regarding the role of Jewish, Islamic, and secular law in the context of real estate transactions. As an Islamic seminary in Toronto, Canada, Madina Seminary is committed to further Islamic scholarship in Canada, contribute towards important research, and provide advanced Islamic education that will benefit the masses both locally and globally.
We look forward to the results of this partnership that could be very beneficial to the Islamic, Jewish, and secular communities at large.

12th Rabi’ al-Awwal | Mawlid for Peace
It is very sad to see all the hate and terror present in our world today. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family) was sent down as a mercy to the worlds. In order to go back to a peaceful world full of love, it is essential that we learn about and celebrate our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family).
On Thursday, November 30th, we will conclude our 12 Days of Mawlid, where we have learned and are still learning about our Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him and his family) attributes from the Shamail. It is always important to know, “How would Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family) act in this situation?”.
Join us on the 12th of Rabi’ Al-Awwal for our Mawlid for Peace, with special prayers for global peace & safety. The program will feature naats, nasheeds, and qasaid in multiple languages such as English, Arabic, Urdu, and Punjabi. Food and refreshments will be provided. Come experience Madina at #MadinaCanada! 2380 Speakman Drive, Mississauga, ON, L5K 1B4.
Statement on the Sufi Mosque Attack in Egypt | From Our Executive Director & Resident Sufi Scholar
Friday, November 24th, 2017
I am deeply devastated by today’s horrendous, terrorist attack that took place today in the al-Rawda Sufi mosque in Bir-Al-Abed, which killed and injured hundreds of Sufi worshippers.
On behalf of all Sufi Canadian Muslims, I, along with all the faculty members and students at Madina Seminary, offer our deepest condolences to the friends and families of the victims of today’s attack. We pray for a complete and rapid recovery for all those injured.
This senseless attack targeted our innocent Sufi brothers and sisters in Islam, who were worshiping at their place of worship – a place where they should have felt safe, secure and at peace.
We must all stand together against these acts of terrorism and counter hate by promoting the values of unconditional love, compassion, diversity, inclusion, and peace.
God almighty protect us all from harm.
12 Days of Mawlid
Without the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family), we would not know Allah, we would not be Muslims.

All nights will be full of knowledge, dhikr, naats, nasheeds, and qasaid with #MadinaCanada students and other world-renowned guests.

Joining Maghrib Late | Ask Madina
Answered and approved by Madina Faculty members
AsSalaamu Alaykum. If I join a Jamaah performing Maghrib, and I join in the last rakah, do I do tahiyat-jalsa in my second rakah?
By second rakah, I mean the first rakah I perform on my own, after the Imaan has made salaam.
بِسْم الله الرحمن الرحيم
الحمد لله الَّذِي خلق السمواتِ و الارضٓ و جعل الظلماتِ و النورٓ
أحمدُهُ حمداً كما ينبغي لِكَرَمِ وجهه وعِزِّ جلالِهِ
والصلاة والسلام على سيّدنا محمد النور وعلى أهل بيته الطاهرين
Thank you for your question.
You are to follow the Imam, and by this I mean: you read tahiyaat with the Imam and the jama’ah.
When he does tasleem (i.e., the imam finishes the prayer by saying, “al-salaamu alaykum), you do not say it, rather you rise and perform another two units of prayer and you would, again, thereafter, read the tahiyaat at the end, send salaat on the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa alihi), make dua, and then finish the prayer by saying tasleem.
And Allah knows best!
