Masjid-e-Tabuk Refurbishment Appeal

History of Masjid-e-Tabuk

  • Masjid-e-Tabuk was founded in the early 1990's as a Masjid and Madrassa to serve the Muslim community in Evington and surrounding areas
  • In 2000 the current Masjid Umar was opened
  • Masjid-e-Tabuk continued to remain open delivering Childrens Madrassa classes, Hifz academy, Ladies morning classes and Taraweeh prayers
  • Provison of these activities continued from 2000 until the global pandemic in March 2020 placed a temporary hold on activities

The current state of Masjid-e-Tabuk

  • The building has deteriorated over the years and is not a conducive environment for children and adult learning
  • The Masjid Commitee has carefully considered many options before arriving at two viable options
    • Option 1:Demolition & new build
    • Option 2:Extensive refurbishment
