Islam is monotheistic religion teaching that there is only one incomparable God – Allah and that Muhammad is the messenger of God. It is the world’s second-largest religion and the fastest-growing major religion in the world. Islam teaches that God is merciful, all-powerful and unique.
Thank you for visiting the chatham Islamic Centre website. The CIC is located in Chatham, ontario. The Muslim population in Chatham Kent is on the rise since 2010. Every year, more young Muslim families are moving from bigger cities or overseas to Chatham Kent to enjoy a simple and less hectic lifestyle as well as to raise their families in a very peaceful community. The Muslim community in Chatham Kent is very ethnically diverse with families and individuals from several Middle Eastern countries, Pakistan, India, Africa, China, USA, Canada, UK, Bangladesh, SriLanka, Mauritius, etc. Muslim community in Chatham-Kent needed an Islamic Centre to connect as a community. The Centre will also aid in preserving our religious and cultural heritages. In early 2015, in one of the community gatherings, it was decided to convert this dream into a reality.
CIC’S purpose is to establish a place of worship and provide a venue to offer islamic teachings on the basis of islamic doctrine and tenants. CIC was founded in 2016 As a non-profit organization and in 2019 became a registered charitable organization with cra. there has been great efforts by many of teh cic members and others in the comunity to achieve this milestone. this is just the beginning of tha great future for this organization inshallah
