Words of Wisdom
Abu Huraira (RadiAllahu `anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The prayer of a man in congregation is twenty five times greater than prayer in his home or shop, for when he performs ablution in a good manner and leaves to the mosque only to perform prayer, then his every step will raise him a degree and expiate a sin until he enters the mosque. When he is performing prayer, the angels send blessings upon him for as long as he remains in his place of prayer. They say: O Allah, bless him and have mercy upon him. One of you continues to be in prayer as long as he is waiting for prayer.” (Sahih Bukhari 620)

As a part of our extended programs, growth of Muslim community and other service facilities in Toronto, BMIS bought a Church with all kind of worship facilities at 3340 Danforth Avenue in May 2013 at a cost of $1.85 million without bank interest or mortgage. Worshipping, including all other Islamic programs, has already started at the new location. Because of this successful new project, a full time Islamic School “Baitul Mukarram Academy (BMA)” with Ministry of Education Curriculum has started operation since September, 2014. The school is approved by the Ontario Ministry of Education.
