We offer a wide range of programs for people of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life. Our programming is aligned with the three pillars of Sanad Collective:

Seeking Wisdom

Provide our communities access to sound, authentic and relevant Islamic learning

Nurturing the Soul

Ensure our programming is providing the best forum for worshiping Allah Most High and drawing people close to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him).

Sharing Compassion

Facilitate service to our communities through volunteerism, outreach and positive contributions.

Spiritual Learning

Classes, Conferences, Visiting Scholars, and Publications

Sanad Collective offers learning opportunities that connect us to the sacred heritage of humanity: the wisdom imparted by the Prophets and Sages since the beginning of time, and especially the teachings of Prophet Muhammad, may the peace of God continue to nourish his being and our connection to him, the Universal Teacher who encompassed this wisdom in perfection. With Sanad, you will experience holistic learning in which mind, spirit, and practice are balanced and developed concurrently. Here, you are invited to explore how to walk the spiritual path in a balanced manner, in your daily life. You are also invited to come just as you are, with your authentic self, and ask the questions you need answers for.
Sanad Collective offers classes in English, French and Arabic. Programs are held in Ottawa and Montreal and are live-streamed to an international audience. Recordings of past seasons of talks and programs are also organized in playlists available for ongoing viewing. We also produce scholarly publications in print and digital form.

Sacred Spaces 

Rhoda Mosque and Dar Al Muhajir

The Rhoda Institute is also a place of prayer. Between learning activities, its doors remain open to those seeking a peaceful and calm space for prayer, reflection and meditation. In Montreal, Dar al Muhajir hosts weekly devotional gatherings and other special events. These sacred places provide opportunities for the learner to uplift and refine herself through sincere dedication, purification of the heart, development of moral integrity and the art of noble relationships, all within the supportive fellowship of community.

Counseling & Chaplaincy

Holistic Guidance and Healing

Our counsellors help individuals, couples, and families. We use a holistic approach that integrates spiritual support with emotional and psychological healing. We also provide referrals to other available community services where necessary.

We offer on and off-site chaplaincy services in prisons, hospitals, and universities including support to ex-inmates as they re-enter society.

Annual Retreats

Learning, Reconnecting, and Serenity

We hold annual retreats in English and French which are aimed at taking attendees out of the vortex of life and allowing them to connect with their spiritual-self. These retreats allow for an immense amount of spiritual up-lifting, learning, and forming bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood. Our instructors at the retreats are some of the most well-known teachers of the Islamic sciences.

Weekly Meditation Gatherings

Celebrations of Guidance

In Ottawa and Montreal, we gather regularly as a community, to remember our Creator - in keeping with the sacred traditions of our ancestors. These weekly gatherings provide a means for seekers of Truth to revive their commitment and energy on the Path.

Ramadan & Eid Programming
