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. We have dedicated segregated prayer rooms, ablution facilities and classrooms for women who are welcome to attend daily Salah prayers, Jumu’ah and all other religious and social events. 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.

Alhamdulillah, we have some amazing news to share with you all.

It is an absolute honour and we are proud to announce that Imam Ghulam Moyhuddin won the ‘Most Impactful Imam’ award and Ashton Central Mosque won ‘The Best Run Mosque 2023 ‘

There were over 300 nominations in 11 different categories and we were among 30 shortlisted finalists. The independent panel of judges made their decision based on, amongst other things, the evidence we submitted.

A few comments made by the British Beacon Mosque Awards’ team:

“Imam Ghulam Moyhuddin of Ashton Central Mosque is a highly dedicated and impactful religious leader who has made significant contributions to his community in various capacities. He plays a pivotal role in the mosque’s maddrassah, where he has developed and implemented an islamic education system”

“Ashton Central Mosque is a a shining example of community engagement and positive change. They have orchestrated a multitude of impactful community projects and campaigns, all orchestrated by their dedicated management team in collaboration with the local community”

Whilst we had the pleasure of receiving the award, we would like to extend our gratitude to both Imams, teaching and non teaching staff, students, volunteers, the ladies group, the management team and most importantly we would like to thank you, our community.

We ask you all to join us to pray that Allah Azzawajjal continues to shower our community with His blessings and that our mosque continues to excel in all of the activities we involve ourselves in.
