About CIVIC ENGAGEMENT Department
"Help each other in performing good deeds and piety and do not help each other in sin and transgression"
A beautiful verse from Quran has inspired us to initiate, participate and collaborate with other organizations in developing the projects and causes that are aimed at bringing positive change in the society. We are committed to empower women through skill building and leadership opportunities where they can voice their concerns, and develop new ideas to make life better for all Canadians. Our projects are: Canada Day, Peace walk, International Women’s Day and much more.
International Women's Day
Our inspiration is “And for women are rights over men, similar to those of men over women.” Qur’an 2:228
ICNA Sisters Canada arrange many activities to honour women of all ages, professions and cultures.
Canada Day Celebrations
We are proud to be Canadian and we show it through participating in Canada Day activities. We arrange food, face painting, henna designs and games to celebrate this beautiful day.
Cleanliness is half of faith, is one of the most important message reminded to us as a teaching of Prophet Mohammad SAW. We have decided to keep our cities clean by organizing Park cleaning and city cleaning events.
Trees are vital in protecting our land, its beauty and essential for our existence.
Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) has narrated,
"There is none amongst the Muslims who plants a tree or sows seeds, and then a bird, or a person or an animal eats from it, but is regarded as a charitable gift for him." (Bukhari)
The family unit is an important component of Islam, and all elements of a family are given due significance – from parents to children to spouses to kith and kin. ICNA Sisters have always participated with their families and made this day much more valuable by fundraising for our hospitals that provide the best of services to our families
Solidarity with Hate victim
We as ICNA Sisters believe it is extremely important that we share Islam’s true message regarding any acts of terrorism and stand in solidarity against all kind of hate crimes against humanity. We denounce all activities that instills fear in communities and we stand for peace and justice throughout the world.
