Services

Prayers
The Mosque & Islamic Centre of Brent (MICB) is open every day of the week throughout the year.

We are open for worshippers to use our prayer facilities, including all five daily prayers, Tarawih & Eid Prayers.

The Prayer Halls are accessible from 10 am onwards, and close approximately half an hour after Isha, the last prayer of the day. For the early morning Fajr Prayer, the small hall opens twenty minutes prior to the Adhaan and closes shortly after the prayer is concluded.

Jumuah Prayers
The Jumuah Prayer is a special congregational prayer which takes place every Friday afternoon, replacing the Zuhr Prayer.

The Friday prayer is different from other prayers as it is preceded by a sermon (Khutbah) – a special message addressing the congregation; the topic of which is centred around core Islamic Principles.

Ramadhan Prayers
Here at the MICB we have been facilitating the night vigil (Tarawih Prayers) for the past 30 years.

Tarawih prayers start promptly after Isha Prayers and usually last just over an hour.
Our eloquent Imam’s recite a portion of the Quran every night across 20 units (rakats), leading to a full completion of the Quran (Khatam) by the 27th Night. Some consider this night as ‘The Night of Power’ – the night in which the first ever revelation was sent down.

Qiyam-ul-Layl takes place in congregation on every odd night during the last 10 days of Ramadhan.

Eid
We offer Eid-ul-Fitr Prayers & Eid-ul-Adha Prayers.

The Eid prayer is a prayer which consist of two units and is concluded with a sermon (Khutbah), it is mandatory (Wajib) to stay and listen to this sermon.

There are usually four prayers which are held in the mornings of Eid, the first prayer is held at 7:30 am followed by a prayer every hour up until 10:30am.

Our website will be updated with Eid announcements accordingly.

Marriage

Islamic marriage at The MICB

Many couples wish to have authentic Islamic recognition of their marriage, in addition to their civil marriage. The MICB can provide this simple service, where the bride and groom make their commitment to an Islamic marriage through their freely given consent, and the groom gives to the bride a dowry.

We strongly recommend that couples should undertake separately, a legal civil marriage.

For details of the marriage process at The MICB, including how to apply the conditions for such a marriage, contact our office on 020 450 1986.
