Breaking barriers and spreading hope through Worship Kits

“They fulfill their vows; they fear a day of widespread woes; they give food to the poor, the orphan, and the captive, though they love it themselves, saying, ‘We feed you for the sake of God alone: We seek neither recompense nor thanks from you”
(Quran 76: 7-9)

It can be especially challenging for Muslims who are incarcerated in prisons across Canada to practice their faith and observe important and religious days with dignity and respect. 

This is why Islamic Relief Canada is committed to providing spiritual tools to Muslim inmates, as a means to elevate their spiritual connection and faith during this sacred time, through worship kits.

Essentials we’re providing inmates with this  Dhul Hijjah

Islamic Relief Canada, working with the Al Furqan Foundation, has carefully curated a list of items that will serve the inmates the ability to comfortably practice Islam this Dhul Hijjah. 

These Worship Kits for Inmates will bring them hope in the most blessed of days! 

Prayer Mat

As we navigate through our daily lives, Salah can provide us with a sense of peace, purpose and solace. Perhaps more so for our Muslim brothers and sisters in prison. Muslim inmates will be provided with cushioned prayer mats so that they may find some respite from the hard concrete floor they often pray on. 


Dhikr brings all of us closer to Allahﷻ and increases our Imaan. The tasbeeh can help focus on the remembrance of Allah ﷻ, especially in loud and crowded places such as prisons.

Kufi Cap


Our brothers and sisters in prison deserve to stand in prayer with the modest head coverings that signify their devotion to Islam. Islamic Relief Canada will provide Muslim inmates with kufi caps and hijabs so that they may honour their faith as they wish to.

Clear Quran

The Clear Quran is approved by Al-Azhar and The Canadian Council of Imams. Sourced from Al Furqan Foundation, this English translation is a great resource for everyone to learn about important Islamic stories and themes from the Quran. 

Everyone deserves hope, love, and community

With your support, we can make a difference in the lives of incarcerated Muslims, many of whom are facing difficult circumstances and may not have access to the resources they need to practice their faith in a dignified manner. 

By ensuring they have access to prayer essentials such as hijab or kufi, tasbeeh, Quran and prayer mats, we can help them feel connected to the larger Muslim community and maintain their spiritual practice year-round.

Pray It Forward with Relief Collective

With every purchase of a prayer mat from The Relief Collective, Islamic Relief Canada’s charity shop, we will deliver one to a Muslim inmate in Canada on your behalf. 

Pray It Forward by making your purchase today and sowing the reward of Sadaqa Jariyah. Your purchase can support our incarcerated brothers and sisters' spiritual journey, bringing them closer to Allah SWT and our very own community. 

You can give the gift of dignity and respect!

Your support will allow for Muslim inmates across Canada to observe their religion with dignity and respect. With your generosity, we can help to enhance the spiritual growth and connection of all Muslims, regardless of their circumstances. Let's practice our faith together, with warmth and compassion.
