Masjid Noor-UL-Haram – An Architectural Landmark
Alhamdollillah, As of Monday Dec 5th, 2022, we have started steel structure phase and we are at 75% complete.
World Islamic Mission Canada has obtained the Building Permit to start construction from the Town of Oakville. Alhamdollillah, after the Ground Breaking Ceremony, construction has been well underway. We encourage all Muslims to support this landmark Islamic project.
Alhamdollillah, it was indeed a great blessing from Allah Almighty to see the construction of Masjid Noor-UL-Haram spinning off the ground; a building promised to bear the beauty of its name. The long awaited Masjid in Oakville is underway.
Since its inception in 1989 and subsequently with the birth of Masjid Noor-UL- Haram, it was always the dream of the community to have a custom built Masjid to serve the residents of the Town of Oakville and its surrounding cities. The Masjid is not only a place of worship but an ideal location to meet people of different diversities of religions; a common place to share ideas and learn from different experiences.
The construction of Masjid Noor-UL-Haram started in March 2015 and the site services work is well over 90% complete, the excavation for the foundation of the Masjid has been completed and currently the Builder is working on building concrete walls for the lower level floor of the Masjid. .
Masjid Noor-UL-Haram has different elements inorporated within the project to service the present community and will be very beneficial for the forthecoming generations.
Insha Allah, Masjid Noor-ul-Haram will be the first custom built Masjid in the Town of Oakville. Its majestic and picturesque architecture will not only be an artistic addition to the development in the Town of Oakville but a pride to everyone and all.
