About Us

Brief History

It was in 2013 a small garage was used as a get together on weekends. And the occasional Ramadan iftar. Alhamdulillah the spirit of going around door to door meeting Muslim brothers in the community continued and a Madrasah was established in a warehouse facility. But it was quite a distance for children to walk specially in winters. A van was purchased for transportation and Alhamdulillah the spirit of the Muslim community grew stronger, in 2015 a warehouse was located that was going to be sold soon. Although it was a big move to buy the warehouse and then apply for planning permissions. Through the help of Allah and the efforts of Maulana Zakariyya and uncle Ismail May Allah preserve them. After a couple of meetings we managed to seal the deal and purchase the building relying upon Allah Ta’alah. Just before the Building was purchased Hafiz Patel Saheb Rahmatullahi alaihi visited the building and made dua at the gates and suggested a name for masjid, Masjid e Zakariyya. However Maulana Zakariyya Muhammed  Making Mashwarah with other scholars Amended it to Masjid Muhammed صلي الله عليه وسلم . Naming the Masjid after the Prophet Muhammad  صلى الله عليه وسلم.

Alhamdulillah within a few months we received the good news of the planning permission for Masjid it was in early 2016. Immediately thereafter work started to the building which was than a car garage and the structure needed a lot of repairs and amendments. A three floor plan was drafted however is wasn’t approved. By 2017 we managed to complete most of the ground floor, then the brothers decided to make temporary ground floor structure to start Salah and Jumuah prayers. Prior to this all our jumuah prayers we held at the Thurmaston community Centre. In March 2019 Alhamdulillah the first Jumuah Salah took place at Masjid Muhammed صلي الله عليه وسلم.

The Madrasah was then shifted to the Masjid too. Currently we facilitating Maktab classes and Hifz class Monday to Friday. and an Alim class commenced this year (2020) for college and Uni students age 16 and above in the evenings. Daily Tafseer and Ta’leem takes place after Fajr Salah. And weekly programes continues. Ladies tafseer programes and Adult classes for both men and woman separate takes place once a week.
