We’re pleased to announce our first masjid website in Bradford using the Mosque Platform. We’re grateful to the amazing team behind Al-Huda Masjid for understanding the need to engage the younger and wider community digitally.
Al-Huda Masjid is a community masjid situated on Legrams Lane, close to the University of Bradford. The masjid has capacity for 600 worshippers, with the potential for another 300 worshippers once the development of the basement floor is completed. On average the masjid is used by approximately 300 people every week. Programmes are delivered in the masjid in both English and Urdu. Al-Huda Masjid was founded in the year 2000 by Mohammed Akbar, Mahmood Hussain and Abdur Rashid.
The masjid building was formerly a Methodist church. The masjid was officially opened on 23rd November 2000. The layout of the building was perfect for the purpose of a masjid, with two large prayer halls, a separate entrance for sisters, a number of classrooms, kitchen facilities and bathrooms. Up until last year, the basement of the masjid was used by the Bradford Curry Project, which is a multi-faith charity that provides food to the needy in the Bradford district. The basement has also been used in previous years by a number of other organisations including, the Princeville Homework Club, the Libyan Arabic School, fitness classes, English language classes etc. In 2004 the building was modified with a three-story extension, which included offices, a new ablution area for brothers and a two-bedroom flat, which is currently occupied by the Imam of the masjid. English Khutbas and lectures started in the masjid in the year 2002. They currently have at least one Jumuah khutbah in English every month.
