By the grace of Allah (S.W.T), This Masjid has been serving the local Muslim community for over 30 Years. The Masjid originally started in a small house on Queens Road in 1977 and in 1981 the Synagogue was purchased and converted into a Masjid.
Many alterations were made to the building in order to convert the Synagogue to a Masjid and to increase its capacity. In 1987 an extension was made to the side and front of the Masjid to provide better facilities to the community include a larger Wudhu (Ablution) room, toilets, kitchen and mortuary.
By the Year 2000 our once large Masjid had now become too small to accommodate all the musallees / worshippers who wish to pray at our Masjid. In fact there was such a shortage of space on Fridays and Ramadan the Brothers were having to pray on the pavement to the front and side of the Masjid. In March 2001 we embarked upon the re-construction of the Masjid, after securing planning permission the Rebuilding work started in June 2002.
