With the growth of Malton’s Muslim Community, a regular prayer area was needed in addition to various community services. Jumuah and special prayers such as Eid, and Taraweeh had been permanently booked at the Community Centre, while other daily prayers took place at the Malton Musallah on Goreway Drive prior to the opening of our Masjid in June 2011. One can see from the numbers in the congregation just how many people used these facilities, and therefore, the necessity of our Masjid.
To service the needs of the children of the community, after-school Madresa was started and included a Hifz program. Children from the ages 5-16 also have the opportunity to join our Malton Youth Club that meets on every Saturdays to play various sports.
While a lot has been done, and the change from Village to town has occurred… there is still more work and growth for the future. We anticipate more programs, activities, classes, and increased involvement from all members of the Malton Muslim Community.
Inshallah, the construction of our Masjid will be the impetus for this new growth and renewal of our community!
