VISIT MY MOSQUE reaches out to all of Slough!

On Sunday 3rd March, the JMIC hosted scores of visitors from across the Thames Valley to showcase its leading facilities & pioneering services to the entire community. In addition to a multitude of local politicians and dignitaries, the JMIC hosted special delegations from the new faith groups and cultural centres, marking a major breakthrough for community relations in Slough for over 40 years.

The JMIC also hosted partners from Slough Children’s Trust, the Wetlands Foundation and Diabetes UK.

“I just wanted to say thank you for today, it was really interesting and informative and a great opportunity to meet more from the Mosque and from Slough in general. As well as being a useful day for building work contacts, on a personal level, I had a wonderful time. Everyone was so friendly, positive and welcoming – I almost felt like royalty!” BBC Berkahire

“Negative stereotypes of Muslims impact on many relations in wider society, hence it is imperative that that our mosques open their doors to challenge common myths and misconceptions peddled against Muslim communities around the nation. Despite those who continue to fund hatred and sow division in our society, the JMIC continues to do the opposite by bringing communities together and making Slough a better, cohesive town, where everyone is welcome.” Umar Ansari (JMIC Outreach)

JMIC Outreach – _working together for a stronger community_

In the summer of 1982, a Welsh Congregational Church was purchased and converted into a Mosque. This, however, was quickly outgrown and as a consequence of that, the old building was pulled down to make way for a new and improved version - the Mosque you see today. Construction began in 1999 and during this period, the Navel Club behind the site was purchased and used as a temporary building for daily prayers with Jummah (Friday congregation) being held in a hired hall. The completed Mosque was named the 'Jamia Masjid & Islamic Centre' (JMIC) and although it had been in use from the year 2000, the official opening was on the 18th of May 2001 by His Excellency, Abdullah Sultan Al-Dhahiri - Director General of "The Zayed Bin Sultan Al-Nahayan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation".
