A growing Islamic library has been established at the Islamic centre mainly through donations by members of the Islamic community. An online book drive was established in 2004 which is ongoing. The library contains approximately 200 english books, 500 arabic books as well as other languages. It also has an audio lounge (listening booth) for qur'aan / zoned internent access (to authentic websites only). The resource is provided free of charge and we hope to make it one of the largest Islamic libraries in N. America, free for the public to use.Add a comment
In 2000, we began to produce CDs in the an effort to introduce a digital format that would preseve quality and offer a medium that could be transferred through various digital solutions. Our CD publications were digitally recorded using industry leading microphones and input devices. CDs were carefully edited and tracked according to topics, Q&A etc. for a smooth quality product. CDs gave way to MP3 permanently in 2010. We were amongst the first organisations to transition from cassettes to CDs, from CDs to MP3s and from selling audio to making it free al-ḥamdulillāh.Add a comment
Established in 1999, TROID Publications is one of our most important projects aimed at spreading the writings of the scholars to the English speaking world. Our first publication was ‘The Creed of the Four Imāms’, a book geared towards expounding upon the realisation that the four famous Imāms were indeed upon the same core beliefs. A book that we hope will promote unity amongst the Muslims. From this several publications have been published. As of 2016, we have published 26 books.
Originally founded upon Islamic cassettes, TROIDStore was created to create financial interdepence for our activities. Established online since 2000, the online store was redesigned and reformatted throughout the years (see www.troid.ca/store). In Ramaḍān 2004, the local store at 874-A Weston Rd. was introduced to the local community. During the past years, great investment has been made to increase the inventory of the store so that one day it will be one of the best online and local shopping resources, in a position to supplement the daʿwah activities of TROID.Add a comment
