The effort to build this Masjid in Toronto was started by a group of brothers and sisters who have established a charitable organization.
Masjid Khalid Bin Al-Walid is a federally incorporated charitable organization established in 1990 with the objective of preserving, spreading the Islamic faith, and protecting the community from losing their Islamic identity.
In order to accomplish its goals, we purchased a property (0.84 acres) at 16 Bethridge Rd. in Etobicoke in November 26, 1996. The original cost of the building was $450,000. The property was zoned for Masjid and is accessible to public transportation.
By the grace of Allah, dedicated brothers and sisters have raised a substantial amount of money from the Muslim community, which turned the property into a Mosque with separate prayer halls for brothers and sisters.
Alhamdulillah, in December 1998, Masjid Khalid Bin Al-Walid started to serve the community by offering the five daily prayers, study circles, youth programs, counseling, marriage, funeral services, and other da’wah activities. However, there is more work to be done in order The Masjid to operate fully and serve the community.
