Why Women Cry

Equality of Men and Women in Islam (the Reality)
In the collection of Hadiths of Imam Ahmad was narrated the Hadith that Um Salama (May Allah be pleased with her) said: “I said “O Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) of Allah. Why aren’t we mentioned in the Quran in an equal footing with men?” Then; I was surprised to hear Him call one day from the pulpit: “O people.” As I was combing my hair at the moment, I wrapped it up and came close to the door and stood there listening to Him say: “Allah, Mighty and Sublime be He, revealed that (For Muslim men and women; for believing men and women; for devout men and women, for true men and women; for men and women who are patient and constant; for men and women who humble themselves; for men and women who give in charity; for men and women who fast; for men and women who guard their chastity; and for men and women who engage much in Allah’s remembrance for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward.) Verse 35, Surat al-Ahzab, or the Confederates – From Islam QA

— Good news for the Muslim Community from the Ottawa Muslim Cemetery The land for a cemetery is purchased and completely paid for. The city of Ottawa approval has been obtained. All of the required environmental and geological issues has been resolved. And Now the Ottawa Muslim Cemetery has obtained the last set of approval. That is, a license from the Province of Ontario to operate a cemetery. We would like to thank all those who helped to make this possible. The Muslim cemetery can be operational by the fall of this year provided that funding can be obtained to complete the work on the land. The land for the cemetery is located in the south end of the city about 25 minutes from the main mosque.

The only obstacle keeping the Muslim community to have its own independent cemetery is the funding to complete the project. The project now requires your generous support to build the infrastructure such as a road on the land, landscaping, and a small utility building.

You can help by donating and/or by making an advance payment on a plot. If each Muslim family makes an advance for one plot there will be sufficient funds to complete the final stage of the project. Stay tuned for further announcements on fundraising events for the cemetery.

You can contact the Ottawa Muslim Cemetery at 613-723-5911 or at
