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).
The Prophet Muhammad (s) Said: "“Whoever builds a mosque for Allah, then Allah will build for him a house like it in Paradise.”"
