Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Asalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahe Wa Barakaatuh.

Unfortunately, we have had to temporarily suspend congregational activities at the Mosque due to the Corona virus pandemic.

However, that doesn’t mean that the Mosque has ceased to provide its services. On the contrary, we have been ramping up our online presence and Alhumdulillah, online Madrassah classes are up and running. An online Jumuah Khutbah is also available and Insha’Allah, in the coming days this and a number of other activities will be available on our Facebook, Instagram and YouTube channel in order to cater for our congregation’s and community’s spiritual wellbeing in these testing times.

The astute amongst you will be aware that unfortunately, most of the Mosque’s standing costs cannot be suspended and so are still being incurred. With Jumuah congregational prayers suspended, Jumuah collections which are the Mosque’s main source of income have dried up and so it is imperative that we all do our best to continue to donate online to the Mosque using the accounts details given below please.

The easiest way would be to setup an online standing order with your bank using your smartphone App or online banking using the details below. You may also make one off donations as and when you wish.

Insha’Allah, these difficult times will pass but we want to reassure you that any decision to restart congregational activities will not be influenced by monetary considerations. The safety and wellbeing of our congregation and wider community are of paramount importance. Please stay safe and healthy by following government guidelines on staying at home and if warranted, self-isolate.

In The Name Of Allah, The Utmost-Kind, The Ever-Merciful

Welcome to the website of Ashton Central Mosque, formerly known as the Markazi Jami‘a Mosque, the first and longest established Mosque in Ashton-under-Lyne. Previously located on Newton Street in an old converted school building, we have now by the infinite blessings of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta ‘Ala, relocated to a purpose built Mosque and Community Centre in the heart of Ashton-under-Lyne on Hillgate Street.

The doors of Ashton Central Mosque are open for all members of the community who wish to visit, learn or have any questions related to Islam and Muslims. At Ashton Central Mosque we strive towards excellence both in faith and action, and therefore encourage all members of the community to come and view the religious and social reforms taking place at Ashton Central Mosque.
