Welcome to our 50th installment of “Ask a Historian”.

Join Historian Matthew Wilkinson for our next episode of “Ask A Historian” on May 27th at 4:00 p.m. on our YouTube channel.

This week Matthew welcomes guest Tahir I. Qureshi as they explore the history of the Meadowvale Islamic center (MIC) and the dedication of the people and communities who came together to make the dream of an accessible place of worship in Meadowvale come true.

Tahir I. Qureshi is a broker of record and President of City-Pro Realty Inc. Brokerage, and has also established multiple not-for-profit organizations, including Voice of the Canadian Citizen.

Much of Tahir’s efforts focus on giving back to his community, and he is passionately committed to, and very involved in, the City of Mississauga. Tahir is the Honourary Chair of the Meadowvale Islamic Centre.

Meadowvale Islamic center (MIC) is an upcoming organization which seeks to obtain the pleasure of Allah (SWT) through working for the establishment of Islam in all spheres of life.

MIC has many programs and activities which are designed to help all Muslims in molding and reforming their lifestyle according to Islamic values.

The Centre is committed to provide all Muslims, despite their ethnic or language background, a true Islamic environment where they can practice Islam.

It is not only a place of worship but also provides counselling services for our fellow Muslims to overcome their social problems.

MIC welcomes all Muslim men, women and youth to assemble, discuss and seek advice from the fellow Muslims in regard to their family, social and financial issues focusing on the local community of the Meadowvale area.

MIC is dedicated to nurturing the Muslim youth – the personality of a Muslim who is sincere, spiritual, truthful and honest. A Muslim who practices Islam at all times and places.

Meadowvale Islamic Centre is located at 6508 Winston Churchill Blvd. in Mississauga, Ontario and was founded in 2002.

Meadowvale Islamic Centre Inc. was registered as a Charity under Income Tax Act on April 15th, 2004 and its Charity’s Business Number is 861881670 RR0001.

#ApartTogether we celebrate the diverse culture and practices of worship throughout our city.
