Since late 2017 the local Muslim community in Hounslow have been working towards the purchase of a new Masjid and community centre on Hounslow High Street at 4-6 Handsworth Rd TW3 1UA.
By the Grace and Will of the Almighty and the kind support of local brothers and sisters, businesses, fellow Masajid and institutions, we managed to raise £1.5 million over the course of 1 year and completion on the building took place on Tuesday 12th March 2019. We now urgently need your support to repay the £950,000 of Qarde Hasana, Insha'Allah.
Our vision is to establish a service-packed beacon Masjid and community hub, open to all.
Our provisions in this new community hub will Insha’Allah include:
- Youth & Womens Activities
- Adult & Children’s Education
- New Muslim Services
- Health & Fitness Facilities
- Welfare Clinic
- Counselling & Mediation
- Marriage Service
- Health Clinic
- Student & Career Advice
- Community & Inter-faith Engagement
Alhamdu'Lillah we were able to raise £47,815 to complete the purchase on Tuesday 12th March 2019. There is now £950,000 in Qarde Hasana payable to brothers and sisters. We are asking you to continue donating by sponsoring a Mussallah for £1000 and earning an eternal reward Insha'Allah

Hounslow Muslim Centre Update Tuesday 12th March 2019
In the Name of Allah, the most Beneficent the most Merciful
لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحَدْهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
"None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner. His is the dominion and His is the praise. He brings life and He causes death, and He is Able to do all things."
We are overjoyed in having the pleasure to relay some wonderful news. Having raised £1.5million, the Hounslow Muslim Centre purchase was completed today the 12th March 2019 and the keys received.
The community now has a place of worship and activity in the heart of Hounslow on the High Street. Indeed blessings are commensurate with gratitude, we begin by thanking Allah (swt) may His name be forever Glorified within the walls of His Masjid.
And may He guide it's present and future administrators towards faith, justice, inclusivity, integrity, equity and service. This new community hub is undoubtedly a remarkable achievement and the fruit of perseverance, collaboration, mutual support and unity.
We would like to express wholehearted thanks to each and everyone of you who made this possible, may Allah (swt) provide you a share of every prostration made in His House, may He increase your sustenance, may He bless and protect you and your families and may He grant you eternal success in this life and the Hereafter. Ameen
We will Insha'Allah be holding an open day for the community this Saturday 16th March from 12-5pm. Please feel free to pop by and perform 2 rakah of Shukur. Our aim is to officially open in May for Ramadan, once essential refurbishment works such as wudu facilities are complete. We look forward to extending you a warm welcome.
Our exertions and intentions are purely for the pleasure and sake of Allah (swt), we firmly believe that this centre will be a place of outreach, shelter, education and sanctity for the local Muslim and non-Muslim community and future generations, as mentioned in the Qur’an these Masajid are erected by a divine edict, 'In Houses (Masajid), which Allah has ordered to be raised (to be cleaned, and to be honoured), in them His Name is glorified in the mornings and in the afternoons or the evenings' [Al Qur'an 24:36]
