North London Mosque Trust (NLMT) also known as Masjid-e-Quba is situated in the northern part of the London Borough of Hackney in an area called Stamford Hill. It has been catering for the needs (prayers, tarbiyyah, madrassah, weddings and funeral services) of the local muslims in Stamford Hill and its surrounding areas since 1970 when it was located on Forburg Road. The local muslims in the area are mainly from Gujarat, India who first came to the area as early as the 1950s. The area now has many musIims from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Somalia, Turkey and various Arab countries. To further provide for the needs of the community, a Muslim girls school, Muslim boys School, Muslim community/youth centre and a Muslim Housing Association have been established in nearby buildings. Over the past years the masjid has also strengthened its relationship with those from other faith communities such as the local Hassidic Jewish community and local churches. The masjid is also involved with local authorities and has held diversity training for local police officers.
