The Muslim community in Moose Jaw is quite small, comprising approximately 100 families. The Islamic Association of Saskatchewan – Moose Jaw was established in 2004, under the leadership of Dr. Ramadan, who played a pivotal role in its founding. From 2004 to 2018, the Association operated out of a small, rented space in the basement of a mini mall on the main street.
Thanks to Allah, the Association has now constructed a new Masjid located at 73 Lancaster Road, Moose Jaw, conveniently close to Canada Highway 1. This Masjid serves as a welcoming stop for Muslims traveling through Moose Jaw, providing a space for prayer. The Association has appointed a full-time Imam to lead prayers five times a day.
