Salaam Alaykum,

In light of the COVID-19 Coronavirus situation, the Board of Directors has decided to close the Centre and suspend all programs effective immediately.  Therefore, the planned programs of Ladies night for this Saturday, March 14 and Koonday of Imam Ja’far Sadiq (A.S) this Sunday, March 15 are now cancelled. 

The decision to close the Centre was not taken lightly and is out of prudence, as the safety and health of the community is of utmost importance.  The decision was influenced by the most recent events of the past 24 hours, and advisories issued by Waterloo Public Health, and other authorities. 

For updates on when the Centre will re-open, please monitor the emails and WhatsApp messages sent by Al Zahra, as well as our website :

We ask Allah SWT to protect the health and well being of all our community — locally and around the world — and grant a swift recovery to all those who are ill and suffering.
