IMPORTANT COVID 19 UPDATE
Asalam alykum,
Belfast Islamic Centre is open for daily Duhr prayer. We will open for combined Magreb&Isha prayer from 23rd July inshaAllah. You MUST bring your own prayermat. Please wear a mask. Numbers are restricted to 19 per session so we will hold prayer from 1.30pm and later sessions once this cohort have left the building. This will be revised as we progress.
Belfast Islamic centre are working hard preparing for opening and have done our best to address the logistics of keeping everyone safe. We believe the protection of the lives and health of the community must take precedence over all, therefore it is paramount we introduce measures to open in the safest manner possible, insha’Allah.
Unfortunately, this means that attendance will be significantly restricted, aspects of communal life (such as classes and meetings) will not be possible for now. We have introduced social distancing measures based on the best scientific advice.
To facilitate cleaning, the mosque will only be open for a short period at prayer time, for now, and you must leave immediately after the conclusion of the prayer. We also ask you to bring your own prayer mats and wear masks to reduce risks of transmitting the virus. Toilet/Wudu area will closed.
We ask those shielding, those with underlying health conditions, children and over 65 to remain at home to pray. Please do not attend if you are ill.
In order to open safely some difficult decisions were required, and we have consulted with health professionals at the Department of Health, The Executive office, the Muslim Council of Britain and the British Islamic Medical Association who have expertise in this area. Decisions will be revised on a regular basis and amended accordingly based on advice.
In making this decision we are sparing no effort to consider, prepare and act in your best worldly and spiritual interest. We ask Allah to bless all those burdened with this heavy responsibility, and ask him to make us among those who assist them in fulfilling it. Please abide by the measures put in place to ensure that the community remain safe in our places of worship, and urge Muslims to continue to exercise the admirable common sense, community spirit and patience that they have shown so far.
JazakAllah Khair

Belfast Islamic Centre has served the community in NI for over 40 years. We are a diverse community with members from over 42 countries of origin, speaking 24 different languages, although English is the main language spoken at the centre. BIC is not just a place of worship but also provides practical help and social activities.

While doubts about our community are not new, in recent weeks there have been spurious claims made about BIC, followed by various threats. It will come as no surprise to those who know us, that we do not, and have not ever supported terrorism, violence or vigilantism against anyone, for any reason.

While BIC has spoken out when the Muslim community themselves are slandered or threatened, we do not oppose theological discussions or debates and believe in the right of anyone to change or practice their faith or non faith in peace and safety.

We have condemned terrorism many times and will continue to do so. However while our thoughts are always with the victims, we do not feel we need to make a statement on every incident as our position is clear, we oppose extremism and terror and condemn it. The consensus (majority opinion) among the scholars is unanimous that these acts of violence have no place in Islam. While some who claim to be Muslim commit henious acts, there is nothing Islamic about their actions. Their numbers are a tiny minority among 1.8bn people and in no way reflect our community.

During the height of The Troubles in NI, members of BIC contributed in Medicine, Education and business. We also suffered loss to violence during those years. As our numbers have increased in peacetime, we remain very much a part of NI society contributing to it’s continued development. BIC has a close working relationship with government bodies, politicians and the PSNI. Members are part of the Interfaith forum for many years and more recently, BIC has also been involved with the Arts A Wonder Collective ‘Rostrevor Declaration’ and in developing the new ‘Three Faith’s Forum’ to increase dialogue and cooperation between people of different backgrounds. We open our doors yearly for the ‘Visit my Mosque’ initiative. But anyone is welcome to come and visit throughout the year. If you have any further queries you are welcome to come visit us and talk to us directly (contact details on our page).
