Welcome to the BD5 MASJID
The BD5 Masjid is situated on Broadway Avenue at the top of Hastings Street in the Marshfield’s area. The masjid, serves the local community in the vicinity of the masjid, which is predominantly Muslim. Programmes in the masjid are delivered in both Urdu and English.
The masjid has very close links with local councillors and other community agencies. In previous years the masjid has opened its doors to local school children.
The masjid was founded in 1993. The masjid building was previously a timbers merchant and prior to that part of a farm building dating back to medieval times. With the help of Allah, the All Mighty, the building was bought by seventeen local families who recognized the dire need for a masjid in the area. Money was raised by door to door collections up and down the country by the founding members, as well as personal loans from brothers in the community, to avoid interest bearing loans.
Maulana Ibraheem and Abdul Hadi from Birmingham and most of the local community were present when the main beam holding the main hall of the masjid was erected. Brother Alyas Karmani was the first to pioneer da’wah activities in the masjid in the English language in the mid-nineties. Khuthbahs and other programmes in English have been a regular feature at the masjid ever since.
The masjid has two floors. The ground floor, which is used by brothers, has a main prayer hall and wudu area. The first floor is used by sisters and consists of a kitchen, wudu facilities, prayer hall where sisters’ only events are held.
