The Muslim Chaplaincy at the University of Toronto engages Muslim youth by providing an inclusive space for them to foster a meaningful Muslim identity, enriched and supported by quality educational and counseling services.

Our vision for a Muslim chaplaincy is to have an organization that facilitates quality educational, social, and spiritual services to support Muslim youth on a campus setting.

We envision that a Muslim chaplaincy will have a very positive impact on the course of Islamic leadership in North America. By having access to a wave of committed, well educated, balanced, nurturing, and culturally relevant role models, young Muslims will no longer feel at a loss when they face challenges of faith and identity. Rather, the chaplaincy will be a presence that inspires confidence and healthy spiritual development in Muslim youth.

    Fitra, Love, & Community

    Fitra, Love, & Community

    The fullness of faith can only be experienced through love; and a healthy expression of love requires a sound human nature (fitra). This Khutba focuses on the emphasis of love for one another as a natural extension of our faith and our love for God and His Messenger ﷺ.

    The dua mentioned at the end of Khutba is:
    اللهم أعنّي على ذكرك وشكرك وحسن عبادتك
    Transliteration: Allāhumma aʿinnī ʿalā dhikrika wa shukrika wa ḥusni ʿibādatik
    Translation: 'O Allah assist me in Your remembrance, thankfulness to You, and excellence in Your worship.'
