The first Imam in the new masjid was Qari Yakub Nanjee. Taiyabah Masjid is open for all of the five daily prayers. During the day and evening the main prayer hall can be used for reading the Qurâan and quiet contemplation. It can accommodate over 500 people. During busy times, such as Friday prayer, Eid prayer and the Taraweeh prayers in Ramadan, an additional hall downstairs is utilised which can double the capacity.
