Islam Dewsbury

Our History
The idea of building the masjid and the Salfia Centre came into existence in the early eighties when many Muslim families took residence in the area. It was felt that there was a strong need to provide Islamic and spiritual education for local Muslim children. Thereafter an association was formed with a view to providing suitable facilities.

We Expanded Further!

Furthermore, demographic trends indicated that significantly more additional capacity would be required in the future. It was therefore decided to move the a to alternative premises, incorporating a community centre. With the generous help of the local Ahle-Hadith community and donations from the wider Muslim community, an old textile mill was purchased on the same road as the existing masjid & converted into a new masjid and community centre. The new building included ablution facilities for both brothers and sisters, classrooms & an office suite. The masjid was opened in April 2000 by Dr Abdullah Bin Abdul Muhsin At-Turki, currently the Secretary General of the Muslim World League and formerly the Minister of Islamic Affairs and Endowments in Saudi Arabia. The masjid has previously twice hosted Shaykh Sudais, the Imam of the Ka’bah, and also the Imam of Masjid Al Aqsa in Jerusalem. In 2011 the masjid hosted the famous recitor Shaykh Muhammad Al Luhaidan from Saudi Arabia. English Khutbahs have been a regular part of the masjid programme since 2010 and inshaAllah will continue to increase in frequency in the near future inshaAllah.
