Prayer Arrangements

Ramadan is the busiest period during the year, especially as it coincides with the Olympics, with guests expected from many different parts of the world. Every effort is made by our staff and volunteers to ensure the space available to us is used efficiently. Come as early as possible for prayer and try make space for people to sit next to you.


During Zuhr prayer at midday, if the main hall of the mosque and foyer are full, please go down to the basement hall. The same arrangement applies for the ‘Asr and Maghrib prayers.


Brothers can pray Isha and Tarawih prayers on all floors of the mosque ground, third and fourth floors of the London Muslim Centre and the ground floor of the Maryam Centre (temporary opening for Ramadan & Eid).

Sisters can offer prayers in the first floor hall and second floor of the London Muslim Centre.


For the last 10 nights of Ramadan we like to offer the opportunity for additional voluntary prayers, in congregation in the last third of the night. Many people find this creates a wonderful spiritual atmosphere of worship. These prayers will begin at 2.00 am – they are also very busy, especially on the 27th night of Ramadan.
