The Islamic Society of Markham, by the Grace of Allah SWT, completed construction of the First Masjid in the Town of Markham in the year 2005. The Masjid is located at the intersections of Denison St. and Middlefield Rd.
The Municipality of Markham is one of the fastest growing communities in Canada and Muslims make up a large part of the growth. Most of the Muslims in this community are first generation immigrants from all over the world, who started settling here in the early nineteen eighty's and are primarily professionals and working class people.
Jam'e Masjid Markham has become a focal point for the Muslims of Markham. It is centrally located in the midst of a Muslim community and services the religious, social and recreational needs of this community.
In addition to the five daily prayers, two Jumah services are conducted each Friday both to a full house of worshippers. The Masjid conducts classes in Islamic education for young children, and hosts Spiritual enrichment events, many of which are led by world renowned Islamic Scholars.
Insha’ Allah, future plans include facilities for funeral services and a full time school for Muslim children which will combine the Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum with Islamic studies.
ISM maintains excellent relationships with Community Leaders, Law Enforcement Officials, the Markham-Stouffville Hospital and other community service providers to foster multi-cultural awareness and appreciation, and to represent the Muslims in Markham as exemplary members of the community. We also support many charities and world wide disaster relief efforts.
