imams & local scholars
The Imams are responsible for leading congregational prayers. A qualified team of local scholars work alongside the Imams to conduct marriage ceremonies, deliver weekly sermons and advise the masses to progress their religious commitment. They also offer religious counsel to couples or to families experiencing difficult times. The scholars are entrusted to help the community navigate their daily life trying to become a better person. Our experienced Imams and scholars are multilingual and easily accessible.
Adhan – Call to Prayer
Adhan translates to as the call to prayer. Muslims consider the Adhan as one of the symbols of faith because it is the invitation to prayer. The Prophet PBUH has mentioned many virtues of the one Muadhin (Caller to prayer). As the Masjid has a live transmission connecting to many homes within the community, the call to prayer is broadcasted approximately 15 minutes prior to Salah to inform the congregation to assemble in the Masjid.
We hold congregational prayers at specific times, which you can find in our prayer timetable. These prayers typically take between 10–15 minutes.
On Fridays, the special Jumuah prayer (which replaces the Zuhr prayer) is preceded by a sermon (khutbah), which takes about half an hour. From late March to late October (in the days of British Summer Time) the sermon starts at about 1:45pm; for the rest of the year Jumuah prayer takes place at 1 pm.
