How It Started

Masjid Al Ikhlas & Cambridge Islamic Centre is the result of the a local community project to provide essential services to the local Muslim and wider community, and to compliment the existing mosque. 

in consultation with the Muslim Community and with local service providers, such as social services, City Council, Education and Health services, Key services to be offered were:  Janazah services; talks; Women’s' groups; youth groups; social space; Coffee bar; special interest groups; Jummuah prayer etc. 

In 2008 the search was on for a building with suitable features to use as a base and a facility to provide these services. Alhamdulillah, the property at 4 Devonshire Road became available and was attractive for it's existing public worship building class, it's versatility and suitability to be altered or improved, it's easy transport links (with the Cambridge Rail station within 5 mins walk) and it's cost in relation to similar buildings.

The CAMBRIDGE MUSLIM TRUST was formed as a Chartiy organisation to facilitate the purchase of the building.

Alhamdulillah, by Allah's grace the community pulled together to purchase the building and the keys were handed over in November 2008.

Where we are now?

Alhamdulillah, the community pulled together to purchase this building in October 2008. The building was in dire need of refurbishments and the plan was to add a second floor and renovate the building to accommodate the communities needs BEFORE opening the doors to everyone.

Alhamdulillah, we plan and Allah plans (and Allah SWT is the best of planners).

Ramadan was fast approaching in 2009 and many among us were keen to use the facility for night prayers so renovations were done to the building and through hard work and determination the building was opened for use during Ramadan. Usage of the centre developed and this is where we are now 

UPDATE: The Cambridge Muslim Trust is currently in a consultation period with the Muslim Community of Cambridge - This is your chance to give your advice and suggestions with regards to the building work that is planned. Please see this page for the Official Notice of Consultation

 

CURRENT FACILITIES

The wudu areas, the sisters section, the kitchen and most of what you see here today were only ever meant to be temporary…  In fact the intention was that the centre was only to be used after all of the building work and renovations were complete


The Future, insha'Allah 

We have fully architected plans that have planning permission already agreed. All we need now is the funds to start building! Improvements to the building include:

  • A second floor, offering a whole new multi-use space for activities such as classes, mother & toddler groups, classrooms, consultation rooms.
  • Brand new Wudu/Wash facilities for brothers and sisters
  • dedicated rooms and facilities for Janaza
  • Brand newly refurbished kitchen

Please see 3D renders below for an illustration of how the building will look.
