Welcome to Al-Azhar Academy Canada

Towards learning and practicing Islam in a balanced and moderate way !

Goals of Al-Azhar Academy Canada


Al- Azhar university is the most prestigious institute for Islamic learning in the world. We aim to bring the knowledge and wisdom of Al-Azhar to your neighborhood. One of our first priorities is to promote the Arabic Language among Canadian Muslims. We aspire to make education of the Arabic Language easy and convenient for all ages !

It is one of our goals to equip young Muslims with the correct understanding of Islam that is needed to be comfortable with their faith. In an age of rampant islamophobia, we hope that a moderate understanding of Islamic teachings and traditions will lead to greater confidence among Canadian Muslims, specifically the youth.

Another one of our goals is to develop and nurture hearts and minds to become the leaders we need for tomorrow. We aim to facilitate the development of future preachers and spiritual leaders within our local community. Few individuals are fortunate to attain the opportunity of travelling to Al-Azhar (Cairo) or any other prestigious Islamic institution over seas. This is why we feel the benefit of bringing the knowledge and methodology of Al-Azhar to Canada will benefit a large number of students who will positively contribute to a brighter future for us all !
