Maryam Centre Temporary Opening July 2012

An action packed Ramadan came to an end with thousands of worshippers turning out for six Eid prayers. The temporary opening of the Maryam Centre's main prayer hall, for Ramadan and Eid ul-Fitr, helped accommodate hundreds more people for Jumu'ah and Tarawih.

It was a phenomenal success! Many well-wishers in the community can't wait till the new Centre is fully open. The Maryam Centre is more than half complete, with continuing works taking place throughout the building site. The building contractors are currently working on the new ‘link', which will join the Maryam Centre with the London Muslim Centre and East London Mosque, on the ground and first floors.

Fundraising efforts for the Maryam Centre have gone well this Ramadan, Alhamdullilah. A total of £722,101.17 was pledged including Qard-e-Hasanah during the live Channel S fundraiser and on the 27th night of Ramadan at the Mosque. To date donors have pledged £5.2m for the Maryam Centre and we have received around £3.8m. The new entrance concourse included a full size visualisation of the Alhambra donors wall. Insha'Allah, by next Ramadan we hope to complete the Maryam Centre.

This year the Olympics coincided with the Islamic month of Ramadan, which meant London played host to different people from all over the world, including many Muslim visitors. The buzz of the Olympics and Ramadan attracted media attention, with members of the Press eager to visit the Mosque and Centre to interview members of the congregation, and also document the Iftar and Prayers for news broadcasts. The Mosque Chairman, Dr Muhammad Abdul Bari, was a board member of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, helping to promote London 2012 and to advise on faith related matters.
