“A believer never stops inculcating knowledge and manners to all his family members, young or elderly, slave and even neighbor till he makes them reach paradise.
Imam Sadiq a.s Mustadrak 12/200, Daeemul Islam 1/82

Key Updates

Pizza Lunch: InshaAllah, we will offer a pizza lunch program on the following seven (7) Sundays:  Jan.15, 22, 29, Feb. 5, 12, 26, and Mar. 6. Here are the logistics, based on the limited number of volunteers available to administer this program:
1. Cheese pizza, from Madani Fine Foods, individually packaged to minimize handling.
2. Price = $1.60 per slice, hence total cost = $11.20 for a single slice on 7 Sundays, or $22.40 for two slices on 7 Sundays.
3. Must signup for all seven days; cannot select specific days.
4. No refund after registration and payment since we will provide quantity to vendor.
5. No refund if student is absent on any of the days.
6. If there is a madrassah event consisting of lunch for all students on one of the above-mentioned dates or madrassah is closed (e.g. due to inclement weather), pizza will be provided on the next available Sunday after the month of Ramadhan.

Signup and payment will be via Event option by logging onto www.al-haadi.ca.  Please sign up by Dec. 31st. Parent will need the family login id and password. Select the Event titled Pizza Jan-Mar 2023, select the # of slices and make payment.  Save payment confirmation which will be sent via e-mail.  If you cannot find your family login, send an e-mail to registration@al-haadi.ca .

Charity Initiative

In collaboration with Az-Zahra Foundation, we are launching this year’s Charity Campaign! We pledge to provide WATER AID in remote areas where there is no water and we pledge to SUPPORT ORPHANS, WIDOWS & VULNERABLE CHILDREN.

Kindly discuss the charity with your family and friends and participate via donations. The donations will be tracked by dinyat class and donation receipts will be emailed instantly when you donate online at the link below.

When you check out, in the ‘Additional Information section’, enter ‘Al-Haadi’ and your child’s dinyat class e.g. ‘Al-Haadi D3B’, so we can track donations by class. You can choose to donate any amount or select from the options suggested on the site; each one of us can make a huge difference, inshaAllah. The class that raises the most funds at the end of the campaign will win a prize. Click on the below link for details and to donate.

If you have any questions or suggestions, kindly send an e-mail to admin@al-haadi.ca.
