Welcome to Masjid Umar

Previously two residential properties, which were used as a Masjid and Madaressa. In 1999 the properties were demolished and a purpose built masjid erected. The construction funds were donated entirely by the Muslim community with over 95% raised from local Muslims in Leicester

The Masjid was completed in late 2000 and was shortlisted in 2005 for the ACE / RIBA Award for Religious Architecture. It was described as having "presence, integrity and modesty."

The Masjid serves a vibrant and diverse Muslim community living in and around the Evington area, adjacent to the Masjid we have a purpose built independent school which caters for children between the ages of 4-11. In 2021 Ofsted recognised the school for 'Outstanding' behaviours, attitudes and personal development.
