Despite the passing of 4 years since the Quebec City mosque shooting, the community needs your help even more today.
Rising Islamophobia and violence that targets Muslims and racialized communities has shown that a culture of hate and violence is growing, and our strength in this moment is crucial.
As this community tries to rebuild, help us support the designation of the Quebec City mosque as a national historic site, and bridge the funding gaps that the community is experiencing.
Your support will count as sadaqa jariya and continue to benefit generations to come.
Please donate any amount you can.
“When a person dies, all their deeds end except three: a continuing charity, beneficial knowledge and a child who prays for them.” – Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
What happened and who needs support?
On January 29, 2017, a tragic mass shooting was perpetrated in a mosque in Quebec City, which took the lives of six innocent worshippers and injured 19 others. Until today, this tragic shooting continues to bring deep sadness and fear to our communities.
As the culture of hate and violence unfortunately grows stronger, it is time we all step up to rebuild and fortify the mosque. Although the mosque still exists by the grace of God, it still bears the scars of the horrific crime.
Let us help usher the mosque into its rightful place as an unforgettable piece of Canadian history, where Quebec Muslims will never again feel unsafe, and where hope and love defeats hate and violence.
Where will my donations go?
The Quebec City community continues to live the real life consequences of this hate and violence, as they try to navigate their communal needs. Your donation today will go towards supporting:
- Further expansion of the mosque to increase security and protection of congregation
- Making the mosque a historical site of national significance
- Building the first ever Muslim cemetery in Quebec due to pressing need
Today, help us rebuild the community, and strengthen those who have been affected by this horrific attack. Where hate came to destroy our faith, let us build a fortress of hope and love.
Your donation will be a sadaqa jariya –a continuing charity– that will continue to provide for a community of believers for generations to come!
How did my donations help last year?
Thank you for your support in previous years, which helped to provide for the immediate needs of the families of the victims and honour the legacy of those we lost.
In the past year, your donations helped to provide financial support to the orphans of the Quebec Mosque shooting. The money that was collected monthly is being distributed equitably between the families who are eligible and who have consented to receiving assistance.
This fund helps support the cost of living for families that are having difficulty making ends meet, and helps these mothers build a better future for their children. And for this, they are very grateful.
May Allah reward you for your generosity and care.
Islamic Relief Canada joins the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) in their Green Square Campaign to remember the victims and survivors of the Quebec City mosque shooting. Alongside our campaign for monthly financial support for the families of the victims, NCCM will be working with the families of the victims and survivors to facilitate access to services that they are eligible for, and provide any legal assistance.
