  • We are delighted to provide you with a comprehensive update on the ongoing extension works to the men and women prayer halls at the East London Mosque.
  • We express our sincere gratitude, JazakumAllahu Khairan, for your generous contributions and unwavering support. Substantial progress has been achieved since the inception of this project, with our construction team diligently expanding the existing facilities to create a more spacious and accommodating space for prayers.

Consequently, we seek everyone’s patience, understanding, and cooperation during this phase of construction. We anticipate the unveiling of the transformed prayer halls in the forthcoming months, Insha’Allah.

Your invaluable contributions have been instrumental in making this endeavour a reality, and we eagerly anticipate sharing the final results with you in the near future.

London’s oldest Mosque is now its biggest and busiest, serving more than 35,000 people a week. The ELM has grown organically with our communities, and now encompasses four buildings; the East London Mosque, the London Muslim Centre, the Maryam Centre and the former Synagogue building, hosting over 30 community projects and services.

A monumental achievement for our community would be to complete the final development, to finally combine the old and new prayers halls for both men and women, adding more prayer space to our large congregation, and to introduce a new ventilation system. This has also given the opportunity to double the capacity of the women’s prayer hall on the 2nd floor of the Maryam Centre

Work is already underway to build the exciting Phase 3 development.
