About Us

Central Mosqueis the second purpose built mosque in the United Kingdom, which was built in 1969 and opened to the public in early 70’s. It is one of the most recognized religious buildings in the city of Birmingham and a result, a vast number of people visit this mosque every year. The mosque has a special ‘Guest Book’ which visitors have been signing since 1984; all visitors are encouraged to leave their messages/comments about the mosque's visit in the Visitors' book.

The Central Mosque is open to visitors throughout the year. We receive a large number of visitors from schools, colleges, universities and other institutions wishing to find out more about the mosque and the Islamic faith for projects and studies. Central Mosque is nationally known for reference and advocacy of Muslims and Islamic Issues. The mosque’s congregation and staff have been the subject of numerous television and news features in recent years. Much of the media focuses on the mosque’s involvement in national and international human rights and political issues as well as the mosque’s inter-faith alliances. Since the mosque was built, it has become a focal point for the Muslim community. Over the years, Muslims/non-Muslims have used this mosque’s premises for events such as meetings, lectures, studies, community and educational purposes.
