“Ahmadis are renowned for their devotion to peace, universal brotherhood and submission to the will of God – the core principles of true Islam,” said Prime Minister Harper. “They are also renowned for working together to serve the greater good through social, health and education initiatives, as well as mosque projects like this one. And wherever they live in the world, Ahmadis are renowned for participating in the larger community and peacefully co-existing with people of all faiths, languages and cultures”…

By the Grace of Allah the Baitunnur mosque complex has been completed through voluntary donations of individual members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
The mosque complex provides the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community with a central focal point for meetings, social and religious events on a greater scale that was not possible in the much smaller Calgary mosque. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community acquired the site in 2003, and Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the fifth Khalifa laid the foundation stone on 18th June 2005.
“On laying the foundation stone of this magnificent mosque, Canadian values are flourishing in the City of Calgary.” His Worship Mr. Dave Bronconnier, Mayor of Calgary
