Islam Dewsbury

Founding Members

The founding members of the masjid were predominantly mill workers who lived in the Scouthill area of Dewsbury. Initially congregational prayers were held in one of the members’ living room. However due to the growing congregation size, it was decided to purchase a house for this purpose. A single back-to-back terraced house was purchased on Stoneybank Street and converted into a full-time masjid and madrasah. Over time as the congregation grew, it was decided to buy two further adjacent terraced properties to increase the capacity of the masjid. In the early nineties it was realised that, despite the previous expansion of the masjid the size of the masjid, it was still inadequate to meet the needs of the local community.
