Through the grace of Allah SWT and the generosity of our local community and many others, Azhar Masjid, under the management of qualified Islamic scholars, which is based in Forest Gate in the heart of the London borough of Newham, a diverse borough with a rich history, and home to one of the UK's largest Muslim communities. Our newly refurbished Masjid has been designed and constructed with the capacity to accommodate and cater for 450 worshippers in total.
Azhar Masjid is also home to the first public Islamic reference library in East London, which is situated above the prayer hall. This excellent and unique facility provides all with the opportunity to educate themselves and others about Islam as a religion, its teachings, history and much more.
Our primary aim is to serve the needs of the local Muslim community by providing them with a daily prayer facility and a place to seek Islamic education, through the variety of classes and other services we offer. We also welcome those from various wider communities including Muslims and Non-Muslims, those of all faiths and backgrounds, by providing them with the opportunity to learn about and understand Islam through education and social interaction. We are committed to a prosperous Newham through promoting peace and harmony amongst all, and creating a positive image of Islam in society.
