Description Central Jamia Mosque Ghamkol Sharif, Small Heath
The Masjid was the vision of Hazrat Sufi Mohammed Abdullah Khan Sahib, Khalifah-e-Azam Darbar-i-Alia Ghamkol Sharif. It was built with his help, guidance, and supervision. The foundation of the Masjid was laid on 15th March 1992 by students of Dar Ul Uloom Islamia Rizvia (supplementary school) during the Holy month of Ramadan. The overall cost of the project amounted to approximately £3.5 million. Many volunteers kindly donated their labour and skills in the construction of the Masjid.
The Holy Qur'an was recited on site, each and every night during the construction period. The Masjid was first utilised on Friday 29th July 1995, when the first Jummah prayer was held, led by Allama Shah Ahmed Noorani Sahib (ra). The Masjid was finally completed in 1996 and has remained the same ever since. The Masjid is the focal point within the Muslim community and the hub of religious activity, not just within Birmingham, but also, for the whole of the UK.
The Masjid, apart from the five daily prayers, is utilised for religious celebrations, lectures, national and international conferences, community and educational purposes. The Messenger of Allah, Sal'Allahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, stressed the importance on visiting the Masjid frequently. Abu Hurairah, a Companion of the Prophet, relates that: The Messenger of Allah, Sal'Allahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said, "For him who proceeds to the Masjid morning or evening, Allah prepares entertainment in Paradise every time he proceeds, morning of evening.""He who makes his ablutions at home and then walks to one of the houses of Allah to discharge of obligation imposed on him by Allah, one step of his wipes out a sin and another step raises his status."
