About Us

The Wycombe Islamic Society, WISE, is a registered charity which was established in 1991 to provide beneficial Islamic knowledge and services to the local community. It is based in High Wycombe, a small town centrally located between two major cities, London and Oxford. High Wycombe itself has a population of around 125,000 of which Muslims constitute approximately 15,000.

The Wycombe Islamic Centre (also known as Masjid as-Salam or the WISE Masjid) is a purpose built, multi-functional building and is a culmination of the combined efforts of the Muslim community over more than a decade. It was completed in 2009 by the grace of Allah.

WISE is currently made up of a representative mix of the society in which we live. The trustees and management team, all of whom are volunteers, range from industry professionals to company directors.

WISE organise a range of activities to meet the diverse need of the local community:

  • As well as spiritual activities, such as daily congregational prayers and Friday prayers, WISE offers religious education for children and adults, Arabic language classes, and lectures on a variety of topics.
  • We hold a wide-range of social and religious activities for women in both English and Urdu, details of which can be found on this site.
