Assalaamu Alaikum Warahmatullah
Dear Respected Members of DCC,
As you know, due to Corona virus the Covid-19 pandemic and the state Emergency, the Baitul Aman Masjid has been closed since mid March for the safety of every individual in our community. Our Masjid continues to provide some services, such as online pre-Ifter Halaqah, play audio Quran recitation, khutbahs and counseling for people who are facing challenges dealing with these difficult times.
This situation will most likely continue for weeks or even months.
Usually, in Ramadan daily approximately 700- 1000 people attend in congregation and donate regularly from the beginning of month. Specially Friday and Ramadan daily source of income has been removed from us. The covid 19 left the Masjid in financial crises. May Allah protect all Masajid.
The Masjid needs your generous and kind support to help with operating expenses such as monthly bank payment, maintenance, utilities and insurance etc.
Without your kind donations, we can’t sustain these operations. Your financial support through donations and Qarz-e-Hasanah is urgently needed. Please be generous with your donations in this blessed month for the house of Allah.
You can make your donations using any of the five ways below:
1. Email a cheque directly to DCC @ email@example.com with your details and amount.
2. By e-transfer to the DCC email @ firstname.lastname@example.org
3. By Canada Helps online at the DCC website: http://www.danforthcommunitycenter.org/donate
4. By cheque mailed to the DCC mailing address.

All donations you receive a tax receipt, so please provide your mailing address and email with your donations so we send you tax receipts.
Please note that the Masjid needs your generous donation now more than any other time.
Our beloved the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said: “Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
Again we need your immediate help to reach our Goal of $150,000. Please donate now!
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:
If I had (a mountain of) gold, I would love that, before three days had passed, not a single (coin) thereof remained with me if I found somebody to accept it (as charity), excluding some amount that I would keep for the payment of my debts. Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Hadith 334
Finally, we humbly request everyone to donate minimum $500
May Allah accept all our fast and donations. Ameen!
Jazak Allah Kair,
On behalf of DCC Management

Danforth Community Center o/a Baitul Aman Mosque is located on the border of East Toronto and Scarborough. A full-service masjid, Baitul Aman, offers many services to the community including five daily prayers, Friday prayer, weekend, evening & summer Islamic school.
Goals of the mosque include providing lectures and symposiums, dawah, religious instruction, support services for immigrants, refugees and the unemployed and fostering inter and intra-faith dialogue.
As the mosque is located in, “Little Bengal” many in the community are of Bangladeshi origin. The masjid, however, welcomes Muslims and non-Muslims of any background and has English-speaking, as well as Bangla speaking staff. There are two jumah services every Friday, at 1:30 pm and at 2:40 pm.
The mosque includes a large prayer room for sisters accessible from the rear of the building. Brothers and sisters washrooms are in the basement of the building – with one handicap washroom (please ask the mosque staff for the key) on the main floor.
Baitul Aman Mosque is conveniently located near the Bloor-Danforth subway line (the Victoria Park subway station is a short walk from the mosque) and several TTC bus lines (Bus # 113, 20, and 12 with 24 and 67 stopping nearby). There is a large on-site parking lot for those who come by car.
The masjid took over the former location of the Tropical Nights Caribbean restaurants. Some renovations have been done in order to make the space functional as a mosque, but many more remain and the community is also trying to raise money to buy the building.
Please join weekly halaqah with your family and friends.
