Story

Asalamu alaykum!

Works have begun on Phase 2 of our New Masjid Project. We need to raise £100,000 urgently to start off the project and help us move downstairs for Teraweeh.

Our hope is that we can raise enough money to pay for foundational works, extension including extension roof, brickwork, doors and all ground floor windows to allow us to use the ground floor during Ramadan. It will be a basic shell of a Masjid but allows us to increase our capacity in the beloved and virtuous month of Ramadan.

This will be the first step in our Phase 2 Development. Longer term, we need to raise at least £500,000 to complete all of the Phase 2 Development and officially move into the Ground Floor.

Once Phase 2 is complete, we'll have an iconic Masjid that future generations will be proud of. The heritage of the existing industrial building will be enhanced by retaining the roof lightwells, adding high ceilings, gardens, sports and bike facilities, and more parking spaces. There will be multiple entrances including a large grand entrance

Our Ground Floor will contain a large prayer hall, a multi-purpose hall with sliding doors for 4 classrooms, a kitchen, a tuck shop, modern wudhu/toilet areas and offices. Our upper floors will then be multi-use for the wider community, functions and girls/sisters' activities

UPDATE 14/11/2022 - Extensions are being built - next up is brickwork and works on main building insha'Allah

Masjid Bilal has been established since 2006, we started off in a one bedroom flat, above a local chicken and chip shop, with the support from our diverse community. Due to high demand of the local and surrounding community to develop the masjid, we saw an opportunity to purchase and move in to our current location, a previous Church property on Sarum Road. Alhamdulillah, Masjid Bilal has since purchased a 946.5 Sq.M former Delivery Office (below) opposite our current Masjid with the intention of relocating to it. We have now been granted permission to use the Royal Mail Building as a Masjid, and have recently bought land adjacent which has since been tarmacked and is now used as a car park.
