Saskatchewan’s First Muslim Cemetery
As our community continues to grow, the need for a private Muslim cemetery became a priority.
A group of volunteers from the community formed a committee under the ISR in October 2018. The committee was tasked with searching for an ideal piece of land just outside of the city limits and getting relevant approvals for establishing a private cemetery.
The cemetery committee held several information sessions in various Masajid and Mussallahs in Regina and received immense support from the community members. Soon after, the committee launched a quest for land.
After several land viewings, in May 2019, we found 20 acres of land located in RM of Sherwood. A conditional offer to purchase the land was put in place. The landlord applied for a parcel subdivision in November 2019, and it was approved in June 2020.
Alhamdolillah, by the mercy of Allah s.w.t, on October 18th, 2020, the project got conditional approval to complete a water study and prepare the cemetery development plan.
While we wait for the water study results, which looked promising when the drilling on the site took place, we need to raise final funds to close the purchase of the land.
The Regina Muslim Cemetery Committee is inviting all our community members to participate in this project. Without your support, we can not achieve this goal. And with your generous donations and contributions, this project will come to a successful launch, Insha Allah.
