Canada's top Imam: “Islam has actually become a kind of solution for humanity”

Dr. Iqbal Al-Nadvi (Mohammad Iqbal Masood Al-Nadvi) is the Chairperson of Canadian Council of Imams and also serves as the Amir (President) of Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) Canada.

His previous positions include the following: Director of Al-Falah Islamic School in Oakville, Ontario from 2004 to 2011, Imam of Muslim Association of Calgary Islamic Center from 1998-2004 and as a member of the University of Calgary chaplaincy team.

Iqbal al-Nadvi was the keynote speaker at ICNA Canada annual convention “Carry the Light: Canadian Muslim – Opportunities and Challenges” which took place on August 23-24, 2014.

In his speech “Making Islam a Choice: How Canadian Muslims Can Contribute?”, Iqbal al-Nadvi emphasized the important mission upon Canadian Muslims to carry out the Dawah, meaning reaching out to the disbelievers to make them accept Islam or become friends of Muslims. He added that Islam has become the solution for Canada and humanity. 

On October 23, 2015, a few days after the landslide victory of the Liberal Party in the federal elections, Imam Iqbal Nadvi delivered the Friday sermon at Masjid Toronto Mosque (168 Dundas St. West, Toronto), which is affiliated with the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC).

Nadvi hailed the Muslim youths for mobilizing the Muslim community to vote in the elections and to help Muslim candidates to win their seats in Parliament.

He called on Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau to help the Muslim community realize its main objective of making the Islamic values “the best of human values” by promoting within the Canadian society the idea that Islam is not a threat but an ally, and by accommodating Islamic values.

Thus, he added, Trudeau, like his father, will leave after him a legacy, and “Allah will really use us [Canadian Muslims] here [is Canada] as a carrier of Islam, as a messenger of Islam.”

In an interview to the online show “The Muslim View” (the video was published on YouTube on November 16, 2015), Iqbal Nadvi revealed how the Canadian Council of Imams succeeded in having a meaningful impact in the last federal elections and helped Justin Trudeau to become the Prime Minister.
