About Al-Mahdi Islamic Community Centre
The Al Mahdi Islamic Community Centre was established in London, Ontario in 1993 under the name Al Mehdi Al Muntathar. This was in response to the basic demands of the community for an Islamic center that would fulfill the needs of the Muslim community as a whole, and in particular the needs of the Muslim children. These children, born and raised in the Western environment, required more attention as they faced various pressures, both social and psychological, which caused them to divert from the teachings of Islam and its sacred values.
The centre currently serves as a place of worship, social gathering, promoting the teaching and values of Islam according to the Ahlul Bayt School of thought, as well as increasing the awareness of Islam for the non-Muslims.
The Al Mahdi Islamic Community Centre (Registered as Al Mehdi Al Muntathar) is a registered charitable, non-profit organization.
