Reach your full potential

Here at Imam ash-Shafii Centre (ISC), we provide Islamic courses geared towards helping you increase your knowledge, become a better Muslim, and come closer to Allah the Most High

About Us

Imam ash-Shafii Centre (ISC) is the spiritual successor to two organizations in Ottawa: Al-Fitrah Center and at-Tabsirah Educational Centre. Veterans from these two organizations founded ISC in 2022 with the purpose of addressing the needs of the Muslim community in the Ottawa-Gatineau area and abroad through quality Islamic education and community services.

What Our Community Says

I thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from the Arabic program for Adults taught at Imam Ash-Shafii Centre. I thought that I had knew a bit of Arabic prior to enrolling but I realized how little I really knew and that the Arabic language is a vast ocean.
