Masjid Extension Project

Since the opening in 2009 the congregation has been increasing year on year to the extent that the congregation is overflowing to the car park. Some attendees are asked alternative places to park during this period. The photos show during the Jumuah pray the attendees are praying outside. As this is a car park there is no shelter to protect them from weather.

We sought guidance from architects and the community on how best to expand the mosque for additional floor space services for the next 5 to 10 years. Due to the limitations of extending the masjid outwards to the sides and back it was decided that the best option was to extend the basement back and to create an additional hall. The basement was initially designed to be used as an overflow cark park but during the years it has been used as an overflow for attendees and for youth activities due to lack of space upstairs.

Masjid Extension Summary and Proposed Costs

The extension can be summarized in two distinct sections:
* Basement Extension with Internal amendments for new stairs between ground floor and basement

* Single storey front library extension and associated alterations to entry and landscape

Responses have been received from interested parties. We are working along with our architect to shortlist to one contractor. The costs received back from the contractors for the completion of total project summarized above is in the region of £380,000.

We appeal to our brothers and sisters to donate generously for the expansion of the House of Allah. Allah, the Most High, says: “Those who spend their wealth by night and day (in Allah’s cause), in secret and in public, shall have their reward with their Lord.” [Baqarah (2): 274]
