In The Name Of Allah The Beneficent The Merciful

AlHijra Windsor Mosque

Al-Hijra Academy is a premier Islamic School in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Although there are many reasons to choose us for your children’s education, here are the top ten that we think you’ll be happy to know.

In August of 1997, the devoted community members of Windsor got together and purchased a church in a quiet rural area, and converted it into Al-Hijra Mosque and School. The School gymnasium was then converted into Mosque divided into two sections for men and women. Five daily prayers and Friday prayers were held in this Mosque. In May of 2003, the community broke ground to start the expansion of the mosque and school. By the Will of Allah & help from the community members and with a strong determination, the community started to build step by step. A brand new Masjid was completed and in 2008 community members started to pray in the new Masjid.
