Mosque Re-development

We are currently undergoing a major re-development project at an estimated cost of £750,000. We still need more funds to complete the project and our current shortfall is approximately £180,000 + £70,000 Qardan Hasana.

The development is planned to be completed in three stages.

Stage 1

Development of the basement, which will provide 11 wudhu spaces, 5 toilets, and a shower room. Full facilities for Janazah/mortuary including cold room, plant room, etc.

Stage 2

Development of the front area of both 18 and 18a Waylen Street. This will provide 3 classrooms/meeting rooms, disabled toilets, main office, kitchen, library and the Imam's room. This area will also have a separate womens section which will consist of a prayer area, wudhu spaces, and toilets.

Stage 3

Development of the present mosque and adjacent spaces to a two-story building with a gallery-type first floor. Insha Allah we shall have enough space for more than 700 people to pray in congregation.
