Share the Blessings – Ramadan Food and Toy Drive

Our Annual Ramadan project is back! This Ramadan, Share the Blessings with everyone in the community through our Food and Toy Drive. Help us feed local families by sharing non-perishable food items such as rice, sugar, flour, oil, canned fruits/vegetables and more. Participate in our toy drive by bringing new, packaged toys, and help us brighten a child’s Eid.

“The Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم was the most generous of all people, and he used to be even more generous in the month of Ramadan…(Bukhari)”

All food items and toys can be dropped off at Al Huda Institute, 5671 McAdam Road, Mississauga. There are two food bins; one at the main entrance, and one in the women’s prayer area entrance. All toys can be dropped off at reception or in the cafeteria.

*Note: We do our best to allocate and disperse Ramadan donations in the month of Ramadan. Donations that come in too late are either held for the next Ramadan or dispersed in appropriate projects as per need.

Spring Food Drive

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!

Dhul Hijjah Food Challenge Starts Now!

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.

Ramadan Food Packages Update

This Ramadan, we collected 340 food packages Alhamdulillah.

We distributed food to seven food banks, to women’s shelters and transitional homes, and to local families.

Thank you to everyone for your contributions! With your help, we were able to help people by providing food, not just in Ontario, but all over Canada.

4th Annual Dhul Hijjah Food Challenge Results are in!

4th Annual Dhul Hijjah Food Challenge Results are in!

This year’s Dhul Hijjah Food Challenge was very different in terms of the participating courses as our AHES students, boys Tahfidh classes and staff moved to a new location.  With half of the building empty, our remaining staff and students were still determined to  continue helping our neighbours in need.

  • Our weekday TQE7 class commenced in August 2016 and the Dhul Hijjah Food Challenge was their first Serving Humanity project.  They decided to form groups in their class and compete against each other to see which group could collect the most.  The effect of this was phenomenal as each group raced to outdo each other in good deeds.
  • Weekend classes TQE4 and TQU4 only had 1 day of class during the Dhul Hijjah Food Challenge due to the long weekend and Eid break.  Despite this fact, TQU4 students brought in their donations early and TQE4 students brought in their food items and also raised funds used for purchasing oil and rice.
  • Hifdh classes also participated and  their dedication to bring in items on a daily basis could be seen from their enthusiastic teachers and students.
  • Fiqh al Quloob students put in a good share of food donations and rose to the challenge.
  • From the outreach venues our Etobicoke class happily participated in this year’s challenge as well.

After the 10 day drive, the Al Huda community was able to collect 1,241 food items during this 4th #DhulHijjahFC!

And the class who collected the most was

TQE7

Congratulations TQE7 on your efforts and everyone who participated.
