The Islamic Humanitarian Service is involved in numerous projects locally, nationally and internationally.

1. In addition to the education on Islam we provide through the Al-Haqq newsletter and our website, we have also published over 25 books and are currently engaged in the co-publishing of at least 10 titles.

2. Our work also extends to running a food-bank service in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) under the auspices of the United Muslim Women of Canada as well as providing meat and other requirements for Muslims in the Kitchener-Waterloo area by assisting the foodbank run by the Mennonite Central Committee of Waterloo Region.

3. Our national work extends from 'coast to coast' in various areas - more of which will be featured here.

4.Our international work assists the less fortunate in war and poverty stricken areas of the world -  more of which will be featured here - taking place in India, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Syria, Palestine, Afghanistan, Tanzania, Kenya, Horn of Africa, Philippines, Sri Lanka and other regions.


We are a humanitarian service association (under the umbrella of Imam Amir ul Mu’minin Foundation for orphan welfare in Iraq). Our aim is to assist the Orphans, Widows, elderly and the poor in Iraq. Karbala Humanitarian services is a subsidiary of Islamic Humanitarian Services based in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.

We are based in Karbala where there are nearly 36,000 orphans.

For decades Iraq was ruled by oppressors. Due to this oppression hundreds and thousands of men have lost their lives. Many were evicted form heir homes and became homeless. This has resulted in increase in the number of widows and orphans in Iraq. Even today, Iraq faces oppression by external occupiers and aggressors. For more than seven years now suicide bombers target innocent people including women and children. Many people are left without work or any type of income. Misery and hopelessness has become part of life for many families especially widows with children. Under such circumstances it becomes necessary for us, the fortunate to extend a helping hand and relief the unfortunate from pain and agony.

Introduction to Islam

Dennis Wholley meets Imam Hassan Qazwini, leader of the Islamic Centre in Dearborn, Michigan, to discuss the fundamental beliefs of Islam, and remove any misconceptions the general public may have. Many  Non-muslims have the idea that the Islamic clerics and leaders are hostile and unapproachable, however Dennis Wholley shows that the Islamic leaders (Imams) are normal people like you and I, striving for a better future for upcoming generations.
