Building of Purley Mosque

About / Building Purley Masjid
is a project that will create a purpose built 6 floor Masjid providing rich and vibrant facilities to the local community. 


The Project /Building Purley Masjid​

Purley Masjid is a modern Islamic community centre in a suburb of South London, Purley. It was established in 2015 after fund raising to accommodate the needs of the local Muslim community.

Ma Sha’ Allah, the Masjid is now trying to cope with the demand and has to overcome many challenges to support the Muslim and also non-Muslim community. Here are just a few of examples of the issues:

     We have one main hall which accommodates only 200 people for an average Jumu’ah congregation of over 400.

     People often have to wait outside in the forecourt for the second Jamaat

     Current facilities for ladies accommodates around 30, whereas the demand is known to be in excess of 150. This is severely restricting our ability to meet current demand for women

      Our lectures, Fitness Classes, Mother and Toddlers group, daily iftaris in Ramadhan and seniors meet up sessions all take place on the same carpeted area on which we pray. This is not ideal and as we are effectively operating out of one hall, it means that we can only have one activity happening at any given time

      The Food Bank only has enough space for a shelf rack to store food.  It caters for anyone in need in the Purley community, Muslim and non-Muslim alike


By the Grace of Allah swt we have embarked on the Building Purley Masjid project that will cater for the needs of the community. The project will result in a new Masjid on the current Purley Masjid site and will be a modern, purpose built building for the community spanning 6 floors that will include:

     Two male prayer halls with a combined capacity of 500

     A ladies prayer hall with capacity of over 200 and crèche facilities 

     A multi purpose hall

     A dedicated lecture/events hall (we held over 100 last year), which can accommodate 100 people

     Improved facilities for our already existing Youth Activities, Mother and Toddlers Group and Seniors Group

     Separate classrooms for our Madrasah classes  

     More space for our weekly Food Bank

We already have all these activities running at Purley Masjid but are struggling to meet demands and keep up the excellent level of service we provide.
