    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Among the major challenges facing Muslims today is the need to revitalise our places of worship. Women’s representation on governance structures is nonexistent, & access is the biggest problem that female worshippers face. Gender segregated spaces, which are how many UK mosques are traditionally structured, are dated & unwelcoming.

    Muslim women have been marginalised for many decades by mosques in the UK.This has led to a frustration amongst women who'd like to be included in religious spaces.

    Our vision is to create a space for communities demonstrating how women can lead and be included in places of worship, impacting positively on their families and communities.We want a space that is fully accessible to all (Muslims and non Muslims) and welcome all schools of thought; a safe space for women and a centre for learning and promoting shared values.

    The mosque will be based on the principles of openness, inclusivity, social justice and sanctuary.


    Is this a women only Mosque?
    No, this Mosque will be open to everyone

    Have approaches been made to local mosques and requests made for equal access?
    Yes, approaches have been made to Mosques over a number of years

    Will there be any men on your management committee?
    The Mosque will be managed by women. Men and Imams will be invited to join advisory groups and lead prayers

    Will there be a female Imam?
    Any mixed congregational Salaah (prayer) will be led by a male Imam

    What denomination will this Mosque serve?
    This will primarily be a Sunni Mosque with open access to everyone

    What will the Mosque be called?
    This will be decided by the public

    Where will the Mosque be located?
    Within close proximity to the City centre, a number of sites are being explored

    We appreciate all your kind support in our unique initiative!
