About Our Organization
The Assunnah Muslims Association (AMA) was founded in 2004 as a charitable organization. Our mission is to educate people on the teachings of our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). We work in collaboration with other Islamic institutions for the unity as well as material and moral support of Muslims. Our mandate is as follows:
- Spreading the correct understanding of Islam in terms of creed and behaviour
- Collaborating with Islamic institutions and cultural centres for the benefit of Muslims
- Contributing to providing rising generations with Islamic education
- Caring for the social state of Muslims and supporting them
- Raising awareness about Islam’s mission of peace
We provide religious and social services to Muslims in Ottawa with our mosque located in the south-end of the city. We also provide valuable content about Islam through our website for people around the globe.
