Zawiyah Foundation is an Islamic Centre in Vancouver, BC. Its objective is to develop a conducive learning environment for traditional Islam. Other than weekly Tafsir classes and Quran classes for children, it also runs programs like feeding the homeless and the Masjid At-Tawbah mosque-building project.
The foundation was set up to contribute to the growth of the Muslim Ummah, within the framework of 4 main principles.
These principles are:
- Shukr (Gratitude)
- Ridhwan (Seeking God’s pleasure)
The foundation aims to provide a conducive environment where community activities are based solely on seeking God’s pleasure (Ridhwan). The foundation believes in the pivotal strength of Taqwa as the fuel in running the organization, and commiting itself in activities of Shukr (gratitude and charity) as its engine.
