Appeal for DonationsApril 12, 2020
Dear Brothers and Sisters, Assalam-u-Alaikum, Given the current unprecedented situation with COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with the orders of provincial government regarding avoiding congregations, the three Masajid (mosques) in Dartmouth, Truro and Pictou County administered by Islamic Association of Nova Scotia remain closed.
The only source of income for the Islamic Association is donations by the Muslim community members. The closure of the Masajid has lead to a significant decrease in revenue, especially given that no donations can be collected at Jumuah prayers. The expenses of maintaining the Masajid and running the operations of the organization continue.
We strongly encourage everyone to make donations to the Islamic Association to help cover these ongoing costs. Donations can be made by Interac email transfer to: email@example.com
Credit card payments can be made on-line at: www.islamnovascotia.ca
Cheques can also be mailed to the Islamic Association of Nova Scotia.
Tax deductible receipts will be issued for donations. Download the form here.
Jazak Allah Khair for your support,
Islamic Association of Nova Scotia
