In 21st century Britain, the role of the Masjid is as important as it was in the time of our Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him). Alhumdullilah we are currently in the process of extending and renovating the Masjid e Noor not only to meet today’s but insha’Allah the future generation needs and to overcome some of the difficulty that needs to be addressed in this mosque which was built in 1983.
We hope and pray that you are able to assist us in this noble cause by donating generously, and by introducing us to other potential donors. Thereby acquiring blessing and rewards in this world and the hereafter.
In 1983 Masjid E Noor was built and opened to the community. Since the number of Muslims in Gloucester has multiplied a few times in recent years, the mosque facilities have become too small to cater for the ever increasing number of people, especially on Fridays, Ramadan Taraweeh,and on Eid day. This situation has prompted the Association to consider extending the mosque. Plans were prepared and an application for planning permission was made to the Gloucester City Council. Al-humdullilah, our application for planning permission was approved in November 2006.
Facilities will include the renovation of all the Jamaat Khanna’s with new improved Heating Lighting and ventilation as well as additional spaces for Jamaat prayers. The extension will provide additional wudhu, W/C, shower cubicles, Kitchen, guest room and library as well as better access for our elders and disabled. For more information visit the construction page.
To achieve our objectives we need the duaas (prayer) help and financial support of both our local community and the wider Muslim Community throughout the U.K. and the world.
