  • What an amazing mosque. Beautiful on the out side as well as inside. We got there a bit early on Friday and I was amazed at how well planned the walk to the prayer hall is. There are a few halls, well laid out and the audio quality, discipline etc is brilliant. Indeed, a house of the Almighty, Led by His humble servants.
  • Architecturally Beautiful I once wanted to pray Jum'ah and i was nearby but luckily I found out it was Ahmadiyyah. Dont be fooled by the beauty this is an Ahmadiyyah mosque. Sorry but if you are a Sunni then try to avoid it.
  • Excellent place to visit and its sign of peace around neighbourhood and throughout UK.
  • It's​ very beautiful and peaceful place. I have found there real face of Islam.
  • Very calm and very beautiful mosque..
