About Us

Providing Quality Islamic Education Since 2022

Imam ash-Shafii Centre (ISC) was born out of the desire to build strong Muslim leaders of the future. Leaders who know their religion well, know the Qur’an & Sunnah, and practice this faith the right way. That starts with education, and we aspire to  provide a high standard in Islamic education.

Our Mission

Although Imam ash-Shafii Centre officially began its operations in 2022, the team working behind the scenes have been active in the community for many years. We have an amazing team of veteran talent with experience in teaching Islamic classes, community programming, offering leadership and skills training, and also providing mentorship.

Our mission is to promote the correct understanding of Islam according to the Qur’an and Sunnah to Muslims in Ottawa and beyond. We believe that Islam is the only way to truly transform a person’s life in terms of their health, wealth, relationships, etc. This can only be achieved through learning and practicing Islam to the best of our ability.

Our Vision

Our vision is that ISC becomes a focal point in providing quality Islamic education while serving the needs of the community. We want to develop the future leaders of our Muslim community.

We encourage you to join us on our journey to creating positive change in Ottawa and beyond. You can learn more about ISC here.
