Green Lane Masjid is operated by Jamiat Ahle Hadith, UK, out of a historic building acquired in 1979. Extensive renovation and expansion works have taken place over the past few years to increase space for prayer, residences, and a mortuary facility. The Green Lane Masjid came under intense scrutiny following an undercover documentary in January 2007 by Britian's Channel 4 (Dispatches: Undercover Mosque) that showed one of its imams, the American-born Abu Usamah, making unflattering comments about women and non-Muslims and alleging undue influence by Saudi clerics. Both Abu Usamah and the Green Lane Masjid claim that comments were taken out of context in an attempt to defame them.
