Welcome to Jamea Masjid
12/04/17 – Special Jumuah lecture by Hazrat Moulana Abdul Aleem Faruqi d.b. this Friday 14th April. See announcement page for further details.
Jamea Masjid is the largest and longest established mosque (masjid) in Preston, Lancashire, England. The mosque was established in 1964 at 24 Great Avenham Street and thereafter Clarendon Street was acquired in 1967 serving the Muslim community of Preston until the current Jamea Masjid which was completed in 1984. It is recognised as the Central Masjid of Preston due to its capacity, location and the diversity of its worshippers.
The main prayer hall can accommodate approximately 900 worshippers and has two side-rooms which have a variety of uses but can be incorporated to extend the capacity of the main prayer hall, as and when required.
Jamea Education Academy will replace the original building used as the mosque in 1967. This is the building adjacent to the current Masjid. The new modern building will continue to cater for the needs of the community.
