Muslim youth lead efforts to keep Edmonton mosque open

Muslim youth have made a huge impact in their community during the month of Ramadan, helping an Edmonton mosque keep its doors open. Sahaba Mosque, also known as the Downtown Islamic Association, ran into funding troubles when mass gathering restrictions due to COVID-19 cut off most community fundraising. The place of worship has been a big part of the Edmonton area since it opened in 1997. It currently operates two locations.

Muslim community focused on giving back during Ramadan 2020.Young community members stepped up, using their social media and technology skills to launch a campaign that’s raised more than $55,000 for operating costs in a few weeks. “Within the first 24 hours we raised $16,000, which covers about a month of expenses for the mosque.” In the video, youth share a quick message, speaking about what the mosque means to them.

Abdishakour Mohamed, the imam of Sahaba Mosque, said the video and the effort displayed from the young people and teens have touched him.
