Between the years of 1970 to 1980, followers of Ahlill Bait (P.B.U.T) started to arrive to Montreal Canada, especially from Iraq in small numbers. Activities were made at home. In between the years of 1980 to 1985 the number increased in a noticeable way among new immigrants, students as well as refugees. Therefore, we had to rent an apartment in the year of 1983 in the area of Walkley. There were gathering every Thursday evening for dua’a Kumail, in the months of Ramadan and Muharam and Ulamaa (scholars) were invited.
In the year of 1985, an apartment was rented in the area of Plamondon. Contacts were made with new arriving families. Ihtifalat (religious celebrations) were made at schools and universities.
In 1986 an apartment was rented under the name of the UNITED ISLAMIC FOR IRAQI STUDENTS. It was the center of activities for Thursday evenings, months of Ramadan and Muharam as well as other celebrated Islamic occasions. Soon after, the number of new arrivals began to increase which have lead to a noticeable increase in the activities.The center was transferred to Cote-st-Luc until the year 1990. There after a bigger location was rented under the name of Hussainiat Ahlill Bait (P.B.U.T) on Sherbrooke Street for a period of 5 years. Sheikh Mohamed Mahdy Al Nassiry was invited to this location and started his work as an informative.
In 1995 the center was moved to Beaconsfield, where another large hall was rented.
In 1998 was the time to buy and own a bigger place for the community, and was entitled under the name of the Ahlill Bait (P.B.U.T) Mosque, thanks to the efforts and participation of all Muslims in offering with whatever they could possibly donate. Women participated by giving their gold as donation to help build the mosque and even children and youth contributed with the best they could. With the help of Almighty Allah, the location was purchased for a sum of $185,000 dollars. Repairs were made to make the establishment fit for a mosque; a section for men, one for women and another for our teens.
