Overview

On average 10,000 people use our masjid every week, with at least 1,000 turning up for the Friday (Jumu’ah) prayer. Over a quarter of a million worshippers converge on the Darussalaam Masjid Inc. during the month of Ramadan.

Our honorable imams Mo. Mukit combine regular religious teachings – in English, Arabic, Bengali – with Hajj training programmes, and offer counsel for new Muslims via the Islam Awareness Project.

Prayer

The Darussalaam Masjid Inc is open for all of the five daily prayers. During the daytime the main prayer hall can be used for reading the Qur‘an and quiet contemplation. It can accommodate over 1000 people, including space dedicated just for women. During busy times, such as Friday prayer, Eid prayer and the Tarawih prayers in Ramadan.

Religious advice & counseling

Muslims turn to the mosque for help and advice in all matters of their day-to-day life. The Darussalaam Masjid Inc has trained honorable Imams to advise and counsel on the many concerns of the community such as bereavement, cultural challenges, generational issues and matrimonial problems.

Lectures & Training

Regular programmes include Tafsir (explanation) of the Qur‘an in English, Bangla. Also, the Saturday Halaqah is a weekly programme open to all the family with a diverse range of speakers and topics.

As more people undertake the Hajj, the mosque offers an open training programme every year.

Marriage solemnisation

Family life is the building block of a successful society, and marriage is an occasion of great joy in the Muslim community. The Darussalaam Masjid Inc facilitates the solemnization of an Islamic contract of marriage. The newly-married couple is provided with an official ‘Nikah’ certificate to show they have been married according to Islamic Law.

Funeral Service

Funeral rites for a Muslim must be observed according to religious guidelines. An independent funeral service based at the mosque, Haji Taslim Funerals, arranges for the collection of the deceased from the hospital or mortuary, and makes arrangements for the funeral prayer and the burial.
