In August of 1997, 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. School gymnasium was 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. Many fundraising events were held and the small Muslim community of Windsor showed their generosity every time. A brand new Masjid was completed and in 2008 community members started to pray in the new Masjid.


The Mosque was established with the clear objective to assist the Muslims in North America to uphold and implement Islamic values for themselves and their family members, provide an Islamic environment for friends to congregate, to provide dawa to the non-Muslims and to live in a multicultural community with respect for one another. The ultimate goal is to seek Allah (SWT)'s pleasure and salvation in the Hereafter.


The main goal of the Al-Hijra Mosque is to provide the daily prayer services and to have an Imam that would provide the correct knowledge of Islam according to the way the companions of the Prophet Muhammad (sall'Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam) understood it. Teach Islam, as a way of life, learned through the primary source of the Qur'an as revealed to the Prophet and through his traditions, the Sunnah, sayings and practices, described in authentic ahadith. We ask Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala to help our Masjid and every other Masjid to be able to fulfill these responsibilities.



The Mission of Alhijra Mosque is outlined in following five points.

  • Establish congregational prayers and carry out other Islamic activities that are open fully to men, women and children.
  • Practice principles of moderation, tolerance, inclusiveness and conflict avoidance within the structural limits of the Quran and Sunnah in order to create closeness and harmony among Muslims.
  • Strive to be financially viable and sustainable organization.
  • Promote our Masjid through joint actions with other Muslim organizations.
  • Communicate with non-Muslims about Islam and work with them in serving beneficial causes.
