East London Mosque

Salam and good day readers!

In London, you can find quite a few mosques here. Some are smaller than the other. Some are just called as Islamic education centres rather than mosques. There are two mosques that I know that's quite big which are the London Central Mosque and the East London Mosque.

East London Mosque is located between Aldgate East and Whitechapel train station. The bus station to go here is called East London Mosque station.

The front entrance is only for male.

Female entrance is at the back, which you can cut a short cut through the Muslim centre (which has halls and seminar rooms for talks).

The female prayer hall is at a building called Maryam Centre on the 2nd floor. 

It's located near this synagogue (Jewish temple).

The prayer hall is quite big..air conditioned during summer. They even have a special room for deaf people.

The ablution and toilet area is clean and huge.

They even have showers! Whaatt!!!??

Quotes on the wall.

Hadis Abu Musa r.a katanya: Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda: Sesungguhnya orang yang paling besar pahalanya ketika mendirikan sembahyang ialah orang paling jauh perjalanannya iaitu langkahnya menuju ke Masjid. Seseorang yang menunggu untuk mendirikan sembahyang sehinggalah dia mendirikannya bersama imam, lebih besar pahalanya daripada orang yang mendirikan sembahyang kemudian dia terus tidur. 
(muttafaqun 'alaih)

Dalam bulan Ramadhan yang mulia ni, sama-samalah kita tingkatkan amal seperti tadarus al-quran, bersedekah dan beriktikaf di masjid. Ahlan ya Ramadhan...
Until next time...
