24th Ramadan 1433 / 12th August 2012

In the name of Allah the most gracious the most merciful and the peace and blessing of Allah upon  his messenger, our leader and example Mohammad (saw) and his family and friends.

The Bangor Islamic Centre has taken the first steps towards an extension for the only mosque in Bangor to allow the increasing number resident and visiting Muslims the opportunity to establish their prayers and to call for the way of Allah. 

The Bangor Islamic Centre is based in North West Wales and it is the only mosque within 2500 sqm within Gwynedd and Anglesey - as shown.

Before this mosque was built back in 1980 (1400AH) the nearest mosque was based in Liverpool.   The story behind how this mosque was first built is an example of Allah's mercy.    When Muslims were praying in open University halls, a local man donated his back garden and one student donated £11,000 and so it was a beautiful example of cooperation between locals and visitors. 

With the passing of time, the Muslims continued this expansion to allow the mosque to become 10 times its original size in the early 1990s.  We ask Allah (swt) to bless the hasna that those early good people. 

Today the Muslims (students and locals) are embarking again on an extension that will see the mosque doubling in size and we ask all Muslims to help us and may it be a Hasna Jariah for them to the Day of Judgement.
