The Noor vision is to be a centre representing the identity of Canadian Muslims, with these features:
Being a place for Muslims to come together as members of one faith, regardless of sect, ethnicity or gender;
Where the cultural diversity of the Islamic world is viewed as a source of beauty and artistic plenitude, and never of divisiveness;
Where the Quranic injunctions of learning and reflection are upheld as universally and eternally applicable and of paramount importance; and so, accommodating and encouraging an intellectually vibrant community unfettered by the chains of ignorance, prejudice and bigotry;
Where bridges of understanding are built between people, through discourse and discovery;
Where Muslims and their fellow citizens of other faiths can find the means to “know one another” [Qur’an 49.13]
Qur’an 49.13: We have created you male and female, and have made you into nations and tribes, in order that you might come to know one another. In the sight of God the noblest among you is the one who is most deeply conscious of God.
