Masjid Omar was established in 1981 and has gone from strength to strength, from the size of the congregation to the expansive building work that has gone on over the years that enables a range of services that are now offered.
Masjid Omar is used exclusively for the five times daily prayers, Jumma and Eid Prayers, Quranic recitals and lectures. It is also used for the purpose of a Madrassah (Muslim School) for children, male and female above the age of 5. We teach Quran and the fundamentals of Islam.
A Hifz class is also offered for those wishing to memorise the Holy Quran. During the month of Ramdhan the Mosque perfoms the Tarawih and Alhamdulillah, the Mosque is attended beyond capacity.
Lectures are held on a regular basis and on a variety of topics, ranging from learning from Islam about inculcating peace and tolerance to everyday problems afflicting our communities today from diabetes and mental illnesses to drugs and alcohol abuse.
Masjid Omar has gone from strength to strength, from the size of the congregation to the expansive building work that has gone on over the years that enables a range of services that are now offered – including a newly renovated wudu area that has been completed and also new annexe to accommodate the ever growing number of children attending the Madrassah.
The progressive increase in Huddersfield’s Muslim population, has resulted over the years in a necessity to expand the facilities at the Mosque. Our ultimate goal remains to eventually build a purpose built Mosque, to establish a more prominent position within the historic and beautiful town of Huddersfield.
At present a plan to increase capacity by building a second floor is currently ongoing and is a priority task. Donations towards the cost of this are welcome and appreciated.
