The Beginning

The journey of Jamia Madina Masjid Colne began in 1980 where a small number of blessed individuals serving the muslim community of Colne decided to fulfil a communal obligation by establishing a masjid for the muslim community of Colne.

At the time, they decided to buy a terrace house on Boundary Street Colne which was converted into a masjid. The purchase was funded by the small muslim community of Colne. The majority of the renovation work was carried out by the blessed individuals working on this project during their spare time.

In 1990 as the muslim community was growing the masjid was relocated to Chapel Street, again a terrace house conversion. As the community grew even further and the demand for extra space grew the house next door to the masjid was purchased and the extended to where its at today.

The New Project

The former Parish Church which is a listed building was purchased for £150,000 in 2016 by the mosque committee. Funding for this purchase was exclusively through charitable donors from the local community.

The total cost of renovation of the new building is £400,000 for which we need your help and support to raise.

Refer to New Masjid Page for details on the necessity of why the new masjid is required and what the new masjid will be providing Insha’Allah.

The Challenge

The Muslim community in Colne is approximately 440 headcount (UK Office for National Statistics, 2011). This community is served solely by the Madina Mosque – there are no other registered mosques in Colne. The current Madina Mosque premises are based at 3-5 Chapel Street, Colne which was established in 1990 after the conversion of two gable end properties into one. The Muslim community of Colne now require a larger premise to provide sufficient accommodation to worshippers and students attending classes. Our intention is to move from the current location into a purpose-built site. The new site will provide the capacity to accommodate the local congregation and classes for male and female students.

Those who spend their wealth [in Allah 's way] by night and by day, secretly and publicly - they will have their reward with their Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.
