Why do we do this?

Our Vision

Our aim is to support the poor and less fortune communities across the world, by providing different services such as food banking, Islamic education, youth counselling, women empowerment programs, and emergency relief. Our upcoming project focuses on establishing an Islamic Community Centre in Canada that will act as a welcoming and collaborative hub for the local Muslim youth of the GTA and beyond.

“Mankind is but One Community”


Umm Ebrahim

Founder & Executive Director

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Inspired by reading and understanding the Holy Quran and the teachings of our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), I started my transformational spiritual journey to seek higher Islamic education. Despite facing numerous challenges during my educational pursuit, the unwavering support of my family, parents, and household has been invaluable.

Balancing my roles as a wife, mother, and homemaker while progressing in life was indeed a significant challenge. However, with Allah’s guidance and the wisdom from the Quran and Hadith, I discovered my purpose: to serve humanity and draw closer to Allah.

My teachers played a pivotal role, showing unwavering care throughout my journey. This journey instilled in me a passion for spreading goodness and making religion the cornerstone of my life, aiming for betterment in both this world and the hereafter.

As a heartfelt tribute to my late father, Malik Maqbool Ilahi, I established the ‘Ilahi Foundation’ and officially registered it as a non-profit international charity in Canada. It is my earnest prayer that The Ilahi Foundation of Canada remains a perpetual charity (Sadaqa Jariyah) for my parents, future generations, and the entire Muslim Ummah. I urge you to join me in this mission to help our people together in sha Allah.

My ultimate goal is to establish a community Centre that serves as a safe and welcoming space for our Muslim youth. This Centre will be designed to foster an inclusive environment, where young individuals can engage in open and meaningful discussions about various societal issues while keeping in line with Islamic teachings and values.

The Centre will offer a platform for our youth to voice their thoughts, concerns, and aspirations without any fear of judgment or discrimination. It will encourage critical thinking and provide opportunities for constructive dialogue, enabling them to explore and understand societal challenges from an Islamic perspective.

In addition to promoting dialogue, the community Centre will also facilitate educational programs, workshops, and seminars led by knowledgeable scholars and mentors. These sessions will focus on topics relevant to the youth, empowering them with a deep understanding of Islamic principles and teachings, and how they can be applied to address contemporary issues.

Furthermore, the community Centre will also play a significant role in nurturing the spiritual growth of our Muslim youth, providing resources and guidance to strengthen their connection with Allah and deepen their understanding of Islamic spirituality.

Through this community Centre, I envision fostering a generation of confident, compassionate, and informed individuals who can effectively navigate societal challenges while upholding their Islamic values. It will not only provide a support system for our youth but also contribute to building a more understanding and harmonious society at large.
