The Ottawa Mosque is the oldest mosque in the Ottawa. The reward of prayer in the oldest mosque of the city, according to the majority of scholars of Islam, are greater than the reward in any other mosque in the city. This is due to two main reasons: 1. It has had the greatest number of prayers conducted under its roof; a place which the angels have become familiar with. 2. It is the most prone to collapse or become abandoned due to its age. Therefore, it is both a privilege and a responsibility upon the Muslim community to support it.
