Today is the first day of Spring! Let’s make this a time of hope and optimism for the community. Starting today until March 29, 2018, we are participating in the Mississauga Food Bank’s Spring Food Drive.
Donate non-perishable food items and drop them off to Al Huda Institute, 5671 McAdam Rd, Mississauga. The most needed items are canned fruits, canned vegetables, and pasta sauce. Food items can be dropped off in the food bins located at the front entrance and the back of the prayer hall.
Spread the word to friends and family and help us feed our neighbours!
Assalamu ‘Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

The amount of food that we collected is so impressive Masha’Allah and has been a great source of help for so many people in need Alhamdulillah. May Allah accept all our good deeds and put barakah in all we do.
Wassalamu ‘Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh
The Dhul Hijjah Food Challenge is a food drive which aims to utilize the first ten blessed days of Dhul Hijjah to raise food for people in need. The Prophet SAWS has said about these days, “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days…” (Bukhari).
At the institute, we are doing this in the form of an inter-class competition where all classes will compete with each other to bring in the most amount of food. Each class will collect their food items in their respective classrooms.
Donations are welcome from everyone in the community. Food contributions can be dropped off in the food bins at the institute (Food bin in the women’s area, and food bin at the Front Entrance).
Let’s all join the race for good deeds and take this opportunity to help those in need.
