ILLUMINATING KNOWLEDGE, NURTURING FAITH, & SPREADING THE TRUTH

button.png

East Birmingham Central Masjid is a beacon of knowledge, a fortress of faith and a bridge to understanding Sunni Orthodox Islam. Our doors are open to all, embracing a diverse community of Muslims from Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Saudi Arabia, and beyond. It's where individuals, each with their unique stories, come together to share in a common purpose. Beneath its ceilings, they gather five times a day to bow their heads in prayer, to seek wisdom in the verses of the Quran, and to find solace in the remembrance of the Divine. It is here that the sacred knowledge of Islam is acquired, the hearts are purified, and the souls find their true purpose of existence.

A NOBLE QUEST

A profound mission that transcends borders.

BECOMING THE TORCHBEARER

At East Birmingham Central Masjid, we aim to become the central hub that spreads the message of Islam all around the world. The purpose is to move people towards the realization that Islam is the only truth and a way of life for success in this world and the hereafter.

 

It aims to do that through publishing papers, eBooks & articles, sharing documentary & video series and engaging in dialogues or fruitful debates.

 

It aspires to provide a welcoming place and environment for non-Muslims where they could get their questions answered and learn more about Islam and the Muslims.

DISMANTLING DOUBTS

It's no secret that many Muslims grapple with questions about their faith. The rising tide of modernistic ideologies has left them questioning their beliefs, sometimes even pushing them to the brink of leaving Islam.

 

What's often missing is an open, thoughtful, and rational discussion that explores why Islam is true and relevant for all times. 

 

In the world of confusion, scepticism and Islamophobia, East Birmingham Central Masjid is a home to nurturing real conviction through rational, scientific & religious principles. 

 

The Masjid is dedicated to equipping its community with the tools they need to identify and refute ideologies that are foreign to Islam and its core principles.

COUNTERING FALSE NARRATIVES

We're living in an era where falsehoods about Islam are perpetuated by various groups, from Zionist organizations to Christian missionaries, Atheists, and Hindu corporations. They invest millions of dollars to flood the digital landscape with anti-Islamic material, sowing seeds of misunderstanding, doubt and discord.

 

But ask yourself, what has the Muslim community been doing to counter this rising tide of misinformation? Unfortunately, for many, the answer is "nothing."

 

That's where the East Birmingham Masjid steps in. We're not content to sit idly by, allowing our faith to be misrepresented. Our mission is to flip the script. We want to see all Muslims able to take a stand against the misconceptions, the half-truths, and the blatant falsehoods.

TEACHING ORTHODOXY

1.png

"The Messenger of Allah ﷺ was asked: 'Which deed is the most virtuous ? And which deed is the best ?' He ﷺ said: 'Faith in Allah and His Messenger.'

 

Having a correct belief in Allah ﷺ & His Messenger ﷺ is the requirement for acceptance of obligatory acts of worship and good deeds.

 

Fard ‘ayn knowledge is that knowledge which every Muslim must know, seek and learn, so that they can practice Islam with clarity and purpose. One of our top goals is to teach obligatory and fundamental tenets of Orthodox Sunni Islam and guide fellow Muslims away from any path that strays from the true teachings and beliefs of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah*.

*The Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah comprises of followers from the four Legal Sunni Schools of Jurisprudence (Hanafi, Shafi, Maliki & Hanbali) and two mainstream Sunni Schools of Theology i.e., the Ashari and the Maturidi.

ORTHODOX

Guided by the Quran, the Prophetic Sunnah ﷺ & the pious predecessors رضي الله عنه

SCHOLARLY

We follow the Sunni Hanafi School of Jurisprudence & Maturidi School in Creed.

INTEGRITY

We always strive for diligence in research and sincerity in our intention & efforts.

SINCERITY

Our efforts are driven by sincerity to God and the need to fulfil our obligations with honesty.

DISPELLING THE DARKNESS

We hope and strive to empower Muslims with the knowledge of Quran and its interpretation, the hadith sciences, the true creed of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah, Fard ‘Ayn and Jurisprudence so that they are better able to navigate the end of times, avoid going astray and remain steadfast upon the straight path.

These are the keys to remaining unwavering and resolute upon the straight path, by the Will of Allahﷻ, especially in times when confusion and misdirection seem to be lurking around every corner.

 

The promise here is clear - to empower Muslims with the tools to navigate the turbulent waters of the end of times, to find their way through the maze of differing beliefs, and ultimately, to stay firmly on the path of righteousness.

NURTURING TOMORROW'S LEADERS

We're on a mission to lead our Muslim youth away from the dangerous clutches of gang culture and the many vices that trap them, and towards becoming responsible and upright members of our community. We nurture beautiful moral character, ensuring that their hearts are aligned with the desire to please their Creator and follow His commandments in their truest spirit.

It is a place that breathes sincerity, truthfulness, integrity, kindness, charity, forgiveness, patience, humility, compassion, and empathy.
 

These are not just empty words!


These are values that are lived and practiced in the light of Shariah, the guiding principles of our faith. Our aim is not only to shape better individuals but to create a community that radiates these virtues, touching every life it encounters.

SERVING THE UMMAH

In our relentless dedication to serving the Ummah, we've embarked on a mission to offer a diverse array of services that cater to the spiritual and practical needs of our community.

One of our most cherished offerings is our free repository of questions and answers, addressing a wide spectrum of topics revolving around Islam, Creed, and Shariah Law. Our platform also provides a safe and confidential space where the curious, the inquisitive, and the confused can seek answers to their questions that arise concerning Islamic Practice.

In the shadow of a world tainted by darkness, the menace of Black Magic has grown disturbingly widespread. To combat this peril, we have unveiled the Ruqyah Service and Awareness Program. Its primary aim is to shed light on the sinister repercussions of magic and seek a cure by the Will of Allahﷻ. More importantly, it strives to protect our Muslim brothers and sisters from the snares of sorcerers and magicians.

At East Birmingham Central Masjid, we recognize the importance of love and companionship in the lives of our community members. In light of this, we proudly offer Nikkah, Marriage, and Istikhara Services, facilitating the sacred union of hearts and souls.

FOSTERING COMPASSIONATE COMMUNITY

Picture a place where passionate individuals come together, their collective hearts beating for the Ummah, and a shared dedication to making the world a better place. We're the ones who rush to aid our local neighbourhoods, offer a helping hand to those in need, and support charitable causes that truly make a difference.

Here, we're on a mission, and that mission is simple yet profound: to stand firmly beside the Muslim community, to understand their unique concerns, and to ensure that their voices are heard.

EXCELLENCE

We try to strive for the highest standards as laid down by the Shariah.

PHILANTHROPY

We put the needs of our community first so that we can serve them in the way that they want to be served. 

COMMITTED

We are committed to fulfilling our duties and keeping our promises.

TRUST

We uphold our duty of custodianship and the trust our donors place in us to be fully transparent and accountable.
