Nearly 300 students from St. Bartholomews School in Newbury visited Jamia Masjid Slough this week. Students from year 9, along with teaching staff enjoyed lovely tours of the mosque, interesting presentations and some delightful refreshments.

“I cannot thank you enough for all you did to ensure we were not only enlightened about beliefs, teachings and practices in Islam but also the warmth with which you all welcomed and took care of us. Everyone is really pleased. You went an extra mile. The volunteers, wow, never seen a committed team. Pass our appreciation to them all.” Teacher

At a time when ‘misinformation’ and ‘fake news’ about Muslims threatens the fabric of our multicultural communities, it is vital that mosques open their doors to the future generations to learn about the true message of Islam; a message self-worth, communal responsibility, and respect for all races, faiths and ethnicities.

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".
