Brothers on Bikes to encourage cycling at the JMIC

On Sunday 30th December, over 60 riders from around the country descended on JMIC to launch their final ride of the year in the South East region. Arranged by the Award winning group, Brothers on Bikes, this ride attracted riders from as far as Dewsbury and Peterborough, and believe it or not – some of these iron men actually cycled down more than 120 miles just to participate in this super trip!

The JMIC was pleased to support this initiative by providing a staging post for the riders to embark on their trip. The JMIC supports projects that foster the spirit of unity and brotherhood, and encourages more people to adopt a healthy lifestyle and embrace sport. We look forward to exploring opportunities with Brothers on Bikes to encourage cycling at the JMIC.

“Brothers on Bikes Cycling Club were delighted to be hosted by our friends at JMIC Slough. The facilities and hospitality were second to none. It was great to have brothers up and down the country come to Slough and enjoy the country roads of Berkshire. We are incredibly optimistic of building a healthier community with JMIC Slough in the future.”
Abu Thamim Choudhury | Chief Officer

“Having the mosque facilities available to us today helped to make this a memorable day for all involved. The ample parking, access to the annexe overnight and the wudu and shower facilities made things so much easier and enjoyable for all involved. Jazākallāhu khayran to brothers Latif, Umar and Faheem for making this happen.” Nesar Khan |Local Event Coordinator

“Mashallah amazing event , everything went well. Massive thank you to JMIC Slough for their hospitality and facilities, without the support of the mosque this cycle event would have not been as enjoyable”. Qasim Hayat | Local Event Coordinator

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".
