At MasjideTauheedul Islam our mission is to advance the Islamic faith through the provision of a wide range of spiritual, educational and social services enriched with Islamic values that fulfil the needs of our members and of the wider community
The following is a brief synopsis of what we do:
Naturally the Masjid offers public worship facilities for the obligatory prayers which are performed five times a day, and the Jummuah, Eid and Taraweeh prayers.
Since its establishment, the Masjid has been proactive in the development of spirituality and moral standards in the community.
This is achieved through a wide range of activities including educational lectures, study circles, seminars, events and most importantly through Tabligh Jamaat.
By this we try to ensure that we ourselves are practising upon Islam and we are inviting all Muslims to do the same.
The Masjid is the cornerstone of any Muslim community, and therefore needs to provide for it’s’ intellectual, social and cultural needs. This role and function has never been more important considering the challenges of the present time.
In order to fulfil this need, with guidance and leadership from our learned scholars the “Masjid Youth and Social Development Group” was formed.
The group’s activities include:
- Weekly Ladies programmes
- Arabic teaching
- Drugs awareness and health programmes
- Mosque visits & tours for other faith communities
- Sports activities including football tournaments
- Youth focused Islamic lectures
Through the Masjid, the community regularly raises funds to support disaster relief efforts.
Recent efforts raised tens of thousands of pounds for the Tsunami, Indian and Pakistani earthquake disasters.
The Masjid provides bathing, shrouding and burial services for its members and the local community, and works in partnership with the local authority, the health authority and the coroner’s office to ensure services meets the needs of the Muslim community.
