Current Activities of Mosque
5 Daily Prayers
The Mosque has been open 365 days a year for the five daily prayers. We have 100-200 people attend on average for each prayer through which they have been fulfilling their spiritual needs. Also, the imam makes himself available for advice and consultation after each prayer.
Every Friday the Mosque is open for the Jummah prayer. On average 150-200 people attend including children. A sermon is given to encourage people to be a responsible and caring Muslim and to participate locally to create social harmony; this is followed by a congregational prayer.
Eid and Tarawih Prayers
The two Eid prayers are held in the Mosque; Normally 2 Jammat takes place; approximately 200 people attended each Eid prayer including children. During the month of Ramadan, approximately 50-100 people attend the Tarawih prayers each night.
The Mosque has been a place of education and learning for the local community. Almost 60 pupils are taught a wide range of Islamic subjects from Saturday to Tuesday for two hours each evening.
Facilities For Women
The Mosque provides prayer facilities for women for prayers during Ramadan. Although not ideal, this will be extended with the proposed mosque extension. Insha-Allah.
The facilities for prayer and Islamic education for children and adult are arranged according to the Qur’an and teachings of Prophet Muhammad(S). Initially, worshippers were primarily of Asian descent, however as the local community became more diverse, so did worshippers. Now those who attend the mosque range from Asian, Arabian, African and European origin.
The mosque has grown to be a place of worship which welcomes all Muslims, regardless of their background. The mosque aims to accommodate everyone within the needs of UK law.
Though this organisation was originally set up by a local people of Bangladeshi ethnic origin, however, responding to population growth and local demographic profile, membership has been offered toother Muslim communities.
Services are accommodating per the needs of all service users. Membership is also extended to women, young and people with disabilities. Current services are for wider community as well.
