Help us to build a house in Jannah for YOU
Little bit about our wonderful community
IST boasts its presence among passionate brother and sisters of Islam. Serving tirelessly to accommodate and quench the competing thirst of Imaan and Yaqeen. Our community holds more than 3000 people in back to back Jum’ah prayers and counts more than 6000 people on EID.
Alhamdulillah, Islam predominates in our little community and is widely practiced. The current space of is large enough for daily congregational prayers but during Jum’ah, Ramadan and Eid most people pray outside on the ground.
IST needs help overcoming the initial financial barrier in expanding the space for a larger jamaa and Islamic school (Madrasah) for children that will cater subjects such as Tarbiyyah, Arabic language, Fiqh, Quran and many more.
One of the biggest North American Muslim community needs your help to raise funds for its expansion project! Please consider donating!

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, “Protect yourself from hell-fire even by giving a piece of date as charity.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
May Allah reward you and bless you for your generosity in this world and hereafter. (Ameen)
Giving from what we are given from Allah (The Provider and Owner of everything) not only releases us from the disease of want but also reminds us that everything belongs to Allah (swt) and must be used for the well-being of all of humanity.
“Allah, the Exalted, says, ‘Spend, O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you.’” – Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) (Al-Bukhari and Muslim).
A Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) says that a voice was once heard commanding a cloud to irrigate a man’s garden. When the man was asked what he did with the garden, he replied that he estimated the produce of his garden. Then he distributed one-third to charity, kept one-third for himself and his family, and invested one-third back into the garden. Just as Allah (swt) sent a cloud for this man who gave to the poor, Allah will also provide for us in miraculous ways if we give what we love for the pleasure of Allah and in the service of mankind. As the hadith beautifully illustrates, Allah replaces what we give and multiplies it.
1. A polite and humble reminder to keep the Masjid Darus Salaam’s new project in your Duaas. May Allah take the project to completion with ease, and make it a center of Hidayah for all.
2. A humble request to continue with your generous donations towards our new premises.

مَّثَلُ الَّذِينَ يُنفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ كَمَثَلِ حَبَّةٍ أَنبَتَتْ سَبْعَ سَنَابِلَ فِي كُلِّ سُنبُلَةٍ مِّائَةُ حَبَّةٍ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يُضَاعِفُ لِمَن يَشَاءُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ. (البقرة، 261 The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing. (The Cow, 261)

ANAS BIN MALIK RA
10 Before Hijrah – 93 AH After Hijrah)
The complete name of this companion of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) is Abu Thumaamah Anas bin Maalik bin An-Nadr bin Dumadam Al-Najaari Al-Khazraji Al-Ansaari. He was born in Madinah and entered Islam as a youth. Until the death of the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him), he personally attended to him.
It has been related by Muslim that Anas said, “My mother, Umm Saleem, took me with her to the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him). She covered me with half of her veil, and I retreated with it. She said, “O Messenger of Allah, this gentle companion is my son, I grant you him in your service”. He supplicated to Allah for him, by saying: “O Lord, increase his wealth and his sons”. Anas said: “By Allah, truly my wealth increased, and truly the number of my sons and my grandsons is more than one hundred, today”.
He was not present at the Battle of Badr, or that of Uhud, due to his young age at the time they occurred. He served the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) for ten years. The Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) never admonished Anas RA for the thing that he started, nor did he say anything about what he completed or did not complete, nor for the thing that he was not doing in order that he do it. It has been reported that suffering arose on Anas’ land from thirst, so he prayed and supplicated. The clouds stirred until his land became dark and it rained until his cistern became full. He sent his servant to look at the extant of the reach of the clouds. He responded that they did not exceed the boundaries of his land.
Anas bin Maalik (Allah be pleased with him) reported two thousand two hundred and eighty-six Hadith (traditions) about the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him). He had travelled to Damascus and from there to Basra, where he died in the year 93 A.H. He was the last of the companions (Allah be pleased with all of them) of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) to die in Basra.
