Assalamu Alalikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam,
All praise is for Allah (SWT). We praise Him and seek His help and His forgiveness, and we believe in Him and rely on Him. We seek refuge with Allah (SWT), from the evils of ourselves and the vices of our deeds. There is no one to misguide whom Allah (SWT) guides and there is no one to guide whom Allah (SWT) let’s go astray.

In Scotland, a non-Muslim country, it is important to cooperate in donating to build a Mosque, because the local Muslims need to perform worship and engage in Islamic education, for themselves and their children, this in turn encourages themselves to adhere to the rituals of Islam. And that often plays a role in bringing non-believers to the faith.
This was the first and only Mosque to be established in Ayrshire, Scotland in 2009.
Ayrshire Central Mosque, Kilmarnock, was established, by the grace of Allah in 2009. This was the first Mosque in the west of Scotland. We found an old public house for sale and purchased it with donations from our local community for the sum of £190,000. We had to renovate the building and thus the Ayrshire Central Mosque and Community Hub was open in December 2009. This was not an ideal solution due to wrong layout, but it was better than hiring various church halls every week for Jummah Prayers only and not having a place to worship.
Within 6 months we also acquired a separate burial site for Muslims within Kilmarnock Cemetery This is The Only Muslim Burial Site in Ayrshire.
Since 2009 we have converted about 20 non- Muslims to Islam, Alhamdulillah.
Ayrshire Central Mosque, Kilmarnock is a non-profit, non-political, religious and educational institution. and has a Registered Charity status.
The purpose of this Mosque is to serve the Muslim community of Ayrshire. We also hope to serve as a bridge between the Muslim and non-Muslim communities to promote mutual learning and understanding. With the objectives of (a) providing services to the Muslim community and bringing together the Muslim and non-Muslim communities in the Ayrshire.
We actively promote the message of Islam to: Eliminate misunderstandings among non-Muslims and to invite them to Islam, create an atmosphere whereby our youths and others are proud to declare their faith.
We provide the community with a forum for Islamic education.
We provide a means for the community to interact with each other socially and provide a path for them to fulfill their obligations as Muslims.
The fundamental objective of the Society will be to seek Glory to Allah (SWT).
Our Services include:
* Community Events for women and children.
* Adult and youth counselling.
* Hifz Programs Adults and children.
* Nightly Taraweeh prayers during the month of Ramadan.
* Iftar during the whole month of Ramadan.
* Conducts marriages services.
* Funeral & Burial Service.
Now in 2019 Our cause is to appeal for your help to rebuild our Mosque which is in a degenerate condition and not practical for our Muslim Communities activities. There is very limited space for the Sister’s, no classrooms and not enough ablution areas Plus our car park is uneven with potholes everywhere, not to mention the building is situated facing in the wrong direction to the Holy Kaaba.
We feel there is no choice but to proceed with a new build Mosque and Community Center. This new build should commence as soon as possible.
We plan to demolish the building, use temporary accommodation in form of Portacabins which by permission from East Ayrshire Council will be sited very close to this site.
• Our Mosque Needs Your Generous Donations To::
• ¨ Improve And Renovate This Mosque To A Good Standard,
• ¨ Improve And Expand The Sister’s Prayer Area,
• ¨ Improve Sister’s Ablution & WC Facilities,

Donating money to build a Masjid for the sake of Allah(SWT) is a Sadaqah Jariah (continuing charity), meaning the reward will continue to reach the donor even after his/her death.
The Prophet (SAW) said:”When a man dies, nothing lives on after him, except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (continuing charity), knowledge which can benefit others, or virtuous offspring who will pray for him.”
We pray to Allah (SWT) to bless us in our sayings and actions and to compensate us for our effort in this life and in the Hereafter for everything that we will do for this project. We also thank everyone who will contribute to this project in any way, especially, those brothers and sisters who will donate generously from their money. - Insha Allah
