In 1989 Daarul Arqam was established to cater to the needs of the growing Muslim community of central Edmonton. Initial facilities consisted of a leased coat factory, where a handful of Muslims offered salaat and partook in Dawah activities. By the grace of Allah Almighty, from these humble beginnings, the congregation had grown exponentially.
In 1998 Masjid Quba was established at 11517 – 105 Ave. Since inception, Masjid Quba has served an ethnically diverse population including Muslims of African, Asian, European and Middle Eastern origins. Masjid Quba was required to relocate to resolve zoning and parking issues raised by the City of Edmonton.
After an exhaustive search, a new location was found at 10210 – 118 Ave. The new location is an auditorium with a main floor of 15000 sq. ft. and a mezzanine level (after addition) of 5500 sq. ft. A building at one time was a movie theater then a bingo hall has been repurposed as Masjid. Check out the picture in the gallery to see the transformation.
