Newcastle Central Masjid was established in 1968 in an old church building. During 1986 a community centre hall was built next to the building in an open land area. In 1988, our mosque was set on fire in a racially motivated arson attack and the building was totally destroyed. Mosque was shifted to the new community centre building. A new mosque was planned to be built in the old place and in 2004, we initiated this new project. Alhamdulillah external work is now completed and Newcastle Central (Bilal) Masjid stands proudly inviting passers by to marvel at the building. Its Green Dome and Minarat is an addition to the skyline of the city, which is visible from 5 to 6 miles when approaching Newcastle city from A1 motorway. Imagine the new mosque to be completed very soon InshAllah providing services of the local community for the pleasure of Allah (SWT). Newcastle Central Mosque will invite the community to enjoy facilities provided in a safe and comfortable environment. In a city, where Muslim community has grown steadily over the last decade, basic facilities were not available. InshAllah this Masjid will go a long way toward alleviating this requirement.
