Welcome to Akram Jomaa
The largest Islamic Centre in Western Canada!
The Akram Jomaa is a faith-based Islamic Centre located in Calgary, Alberta, and we are the largest Islamic Centre in Western Canada. We operate under the Muslim Community Foundation of Calgary charitable organization. Akram Jomaa caters to over 25,000 Muslims in the Calgary Northeast vicinity.
The Akram Jomaa Islamic Centre (AJIC) will be hosting one (1) Friday prayer at 1:30 PM. The Alberta Government has lifted the capacity limits for places of worship. As such, AJIC is able to host a larger number of people at one time. Masks are no longer mandatory.
We kindly ask that you be respectful towards our volunteers and security team. We appreciate everyone's patience and look forward to a full Masjid on Fridays!
