About Masjid Sunnah
The masjid has been established in 2011 to spread the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) upon the understanding of his Companions. The local Muslim population has grown in recent years such that it is no longer feasible to accommodate the growing demand for Friday prayer space, education classes, Dawah and other activities. Our intention is for this masjid to cater for the growing needs of the local community. The masjid provides:
- Prayer space for approximately 700 people (Men & Women)
- Wudhu facilities for Men and Women
- Establishment of 5 daily prayers including Jumu’ah prayers
- Establishment of Eid prayers
- Dawah activities in Arabic, English & Somali
- Madrasah Islamiyyah for approximately 200 children
In the future we hope to be able to provide:-
- An Islamic library
- Islamic advice centre for muslims and non-muslims
- Islamic Bookshop
We are in the moment trying to fundraise to purchase the rented building and need all the support we can get so please come forward and donate.
All Praise is due to Allaah, we seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of our own souls and from our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allaah guides will never be led astray, and whomsoever Allaah leaves astray, no one can guide. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship in truth expect Allaah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.
We firstly started of as a Madrasah Islamiyyah in 2009 cultivating young children upon understanding the fundamental principles of Islam. We taught the young children in our community the same worship, belief, manners and values the Prophet (sallalahu alayhi wa sallam) left us upon, whilst following the understanding of the Pious Predecessors. We did this by renting out a building that used to consist of small offices and a large reception area. We also used to hold lectures in this building for the local muslim community to spread the correct Da’wah of the Quran and Sunnah upon the understanding of the rightly guided predecessors.
