Message from the Trustees

In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful.

As salaam alaikum,

Shropshire Islamic Foundation has been a registered Charity since June of 2005 with our headquarters at our new site in King Street, Wellington. We are governed by a Trust Deed

Our very roots were formed many years ago by the local community from the time when our current mosque at Tan Bank was acquired. Over the years the population has grown and with this growth our facilities are now insufficient to meet these ever increasing needs.

We are currently at a stage where we have acquired a larger property at King Street in Wellington. This will allow us to build a state of the art Mosque and Islamic Academy. Our vision will allow our local community and others to come and pray, learn and socialise with each other. This centre will allow the importance of community cohesion, understanding and education to be highlighted. It will serve as a place where Muslims can practice their religion freely and yet allow for a calm environment for continued learning and personal development.

This is only possible at a cost – and that cost is £1.2 million. The new mosque will have one floor, a spacious area able to accommodate approximately 800 people. The academy will include facilities for learning, community events, da’wah work and much more.

This is our vision at Shropshire Islamic Foundation and for this to be realised we need your help and support. We would be extremely grateful for any donation you may be able to offer.

Jazakallah khair.
