Maritime Muslim Academy (MMA) is an independent educational institution based on Islamic principles, whose mission is to educate students intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially in a trusting and caring Islamic environment. The Academy offers standard educational programs like any other school in Canada and also offers Quran and Arabic as well as the basic teaching in Islamic beliefs, principles, and values.

The Academy was founded in 1984 to serve the Muslim community in the Halifax/Dartmouth area. It is one of the earliest Islamic schools established in Canada and is the only Islamic school in Atlantic Canada. MMA offers private educational services to students from September to June, a total of 195 teaching days/year, and provides full-time teaching at all stages of education: Preschool, Elementary, Junior High and Senior High. English is the main language of instruction, however, Arabic and French are taught as second languages.

I interviewed my dad on video in his final weeks. When I asked about his work and finding meaning through helping others, he responded, “I don’t think you can be focused on, ‘Oh gee, I want to make a difference.’ It has to be spontaneous. If it’s not…there’s some kind of egotistical thing going on. That’s a red flag. You hope you impact people on the deepest level you are capable of at the time. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you don’t. You’re trying.
