Imam Mohamad Jebara
Imam Mohamad Jebara serves as the Imam of the Cordova Spiritual Education Center, a non-Profit organization in the Ottawa region which offers both religious and social services.
From his most outstanding contributions to the Ottawa community is the establishment of the Cordova Spiritual Education Centre, including its Academy for which Imam Jebara currently serves the role of headmaster.
Through Cordova Academy, the Imam offers classes on Classical Arabic, Qur'anic recitation ( tajwid), exegesis ( tafsir), and jurisprudence (fiqh) according to the four major schools of Sunni Islamic thought, with the addition of other Islamic sciences. Besides Cordova Academy's scholastic works, Imam Mohamad Jebara actively participates in improving the world through his collaboration with local and international charitable and non-profit organizations along with schools and youth groups throughout the world. He is also registered to solemnize civil and religious marriages in the province of Ontario.
Imam `Abdul Rahman introduced him to the recitation of the Qur'an, as well as to fundamental creeds ( `aqida), jurisprudence ( fiqh), as well as the prophetic traditions of Islam.
Despite his young age, it was Imam `Abdul Rahman who first encouraged Mohamad Jebara to start teaching.
At the age of thirteen, Imam `Abdul Rahman introduced him to his second teacher, Salahuddin Al-Idlibi, who at the time functioned as Imam of Montreal's Dorval Mosque.

Imam Mohamad Jebara has also enjoyed the grace of scholars such as the world-renowned Shaykh `Abdul Rashid `Ali Sufi, who specializes in the various styles of Qur'anic recitation ( qira'at). He has likewise frequented Damascus to study at the feet of the eminent scholar `Abdul Razzaq Al-Halabi, a supreme authority in Hanafi jurisprudence who also bears one of the shortest chains of narration in the Qur'an. He has also been confirmed by Dr. `Abdul Salam Al-Harras of Fez, Morocco for his competency in Imam Warsh's style of Qur'anic recitation.
Works of Inspiration
To-date, Imam Mohamad Jebara has compiled and published well over 87 books on various Islamic topics. By his own admission, the Imam attributes his success in these works not to his own erudition, but to divine gifts of inspiration that have facilitated his work. In addition to 14 books in the science of Tajwid and 18 books in the instruction of Arabic letters and Grammar, Imam Jebara has published a large number of other books, including:
As a result of his dedication, service, and community involvement, Imam Jebara has twice been nominated for the Order of Ontario. Below is the text of one of his nomination letters:
To: Advisory Council of The Order of Ontario
Subject: Testimonial letter
I am writing this letter in support of Imam Mohamad Jebara to the Order of Ontario. I have known Imam Mohamad Jebara for 2 years as a student of Cordova Academy, which is the Spiritual Education Center founded by him. I was impressed with the warmth and friendliness that he displayed towards me upon our first encounter while attending a seminar that he instructed. I was equally impressed by his scholarships while attending a seminar on Islamic Jurisprudence as the scope and level of detail that he presented was not only confined to the opinion of Islamic Jurists but also that of Western and Oriental Jurist.
Striving for excellence in all endeavors and being the agent of positive change that I wish to see in the world are the impact that Imam Mohamad Jebara has had on me in the short period of time that I have known him.
Every year, hundreds of applications are submitted to this council of worthy individuals who have demonstrated a high level of individual excellence as well as benefiting the people of Ontario. Imam Mohamad Jebara is deserving of this award because of his commitment to excellence and to the great contributions made in the Ottawa community, which can be summarized by his continuous effort of building a global community of people that have mastered Classical Arabic and thus have direct access to Classical Arabic sources, and can represent Islam, and its high ideals of respect, tolerance and peace in the best manner.
This vision has been exemplified through his involvement with Cordova Academy, ongoing community building initiatives and being an ambassador of Canadian values internationally.
Cordova Academy
•Intolerance is rooted in deficiency of knowledge; as such Cordova Academy was established by Imam Mohamad Jebara with the aim of reviving the spirit and values of Islamic scholars of Cordova, Spain. This period in time was known for its tolerance of all people, regardless of their beliefs and backgrounds and members of this society working towards the betterment of humanity.
•All Classical sacred Islamic texts are written in Classical Arabic, which is a major barrier and a source of misinterpretation. Imam Mohamad Jebara recognized the need to tailor Islamic education to an English speaking audience which served as the inspiration for his thesis.
•Since inception more than 65,000 students have benefited from the courses offered by Imam Mohamad Jebara.
Imam Mohamad Jebara is an accomplished individual at a relatively young age and is a standard bearer of excellence. Excellence begins with strong character and is exhibited through his enthusiastic energy and determination to make a positive change in the lives of individuals through education. He is deserving of this award because he has impacted others through his display of sincerity, integrity and has devoted his life to teaching and coaching others to achieve self actualization.

Imam Mohamad Jebara is set to cycle over 500 km to raise awareness for a healthy heart. Jebara will launch his trip after the congregational prayer this Friday at HCI headquarters in Ottawa to reach Quebec City while raising funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Also known as "The Cycling Cleric", Jebara serves as Chief Imam and Resident Scholar at the Cordova Spiritual Education Center.
Jebara is not a trained athlete and suffers from chronic back-pain, yet he aims to make this journey to teach people that, with effort and perseverance, one can overcome even major obstacles. He wants to raise awareness regarding heart health, and encourage everyone to become more active. Jebara hopes his trip "will inspire and uplift others, especially in faith communities to extend a loving hand to the world, simply for the love of, and care for humanity".
Promoting a healthy heart is not new to the greater community but what makes this cycling cleric different is that he is doing it by example. Jebara believes that "a healthy life includes a healthy heart both physically and spiritually. This cycle is a humble initiative … to raise awareness of this principle".
Jebara is quite passionate about the sanctity of life and wants this journey to highlight the importance of keeping healthy, and giving of one's self, whether it be by donating blood, giving from one's time and wealth, to helping others and making a positive difference in this world.
Imam Jebara will head off for Quebec City following Friday services at 1:30pm at 877 Shefford Road, Ottawa on Friday September 5th, 2014.
