Support our New Centre

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam,

Belfast Islamic Centre is the main meeting point for Muslims in NI, catering to a diverse and active population made up of over 42 different nationalities. Currently we meet in a converted Victorian house which requires constant repairs. A growing community means the existing building has become cramped and no longer fit for purpose. Full renovation or extension will be expensive and poor value for money. Over 400 attend Friday prayers which have to be split into two sessions due to overcrowding and we have insufficient space for Muslim students, women’s activities and Islamic school for children.

Alhamdulillah, the Muslim Community of Northern Ireland has successfully raised a significant amount of money and acquired a suitable and much bigger building for the relocation of the existing Islamic Centre. This remarkable effort was made possible through locally generated funds from our supportive community as well as generous overseas funders.

Having a larger Islamic Centre is crucial for the increasing number of Muslim community of Northern Ireland. The new facility can be utilised for more than just a place of worship. It will become a community hub, a centre for information and education as well as a focal point for religious and social activities besides other features outlined below. The building will be equipped with disabled facilities and will comply with health and safety regulations.

Please donate generously and encourage your friends and family to donate in this noble cause.

The Messenger of Allah (saw) say: ‘Whoever builds a masjid (mosque) for the sake of Allah, Allah will build something similar for him in Paradise” (Sahih)
