Jame' Masjid is based in the heart of the Muslim community within Leicester. The Masjid was established under the patronage of Hadhrat Shaykh Maulana Adam Saheb in 1977 (1397AH).
The Masjid offers a wide range of services to the local and wider community from amongst which some are as follows:
- Five daily prayers, Jumu'ah (Friday) prayers, Eid Salaah
- Daily programmes by qualified scholars
- Monthly youth programmes
- Annual events and programmes
- Educational department (Jame'ah Uloomul Qur'an)
- Evening classes (Maktab)
- Day-time Darul Uloom ('Ilmiyyah classes)
- Matrimonial (Nikaah) services
- Funeral & burial services with facilities for washing the deceased (Ghusl)
- Islam embracing service
- Islamic guidance and advice
The educational department of the Masjid, known as Jame'ah Uloomul Qur'an, provides Islamic education for male and female. The evening classes consisted of only a handful of students in its primary years and has now, with the support of the community, expanded to cater for a range of educational needs for the local and wider Muslim community of Leicester.
Jame'ah Uloomul Qur'an has a wide range of courses and programmes for children and adults. Some of the sections of the Jame'ah are as follows:
Maktab & Hifdh: The Maktab section caters for children from the age of five up to the age of eighteen. These classes are held in the evening and teach the children from the basics of the Arabic alphabet to the recitation of the Qur'an and its memorisation (Hifdh). Alongside the teaching of the Qur'an, a range of Islamic subjects and sciences are taught at age specific level.
Darul Uloom: For those who wish to study Islam in depth, the day-time Darul Uloom allows students, above the age of eighteen, to study the 'Ilmiyyah course and acquire in-depth knowledge of the various Islamic principles and sciences. Within the syllabus of the 'Ilmiyyah course there are also a number of academic subjects being studied at various levels.
Part Time Alim Class: For those adults who have commitments during the day and cannot enrol in the day-time Darul Uloom, the course is also offered on a part-time basis which is held on weekday evenings. The 'Ilmiyyah course is broken down over several years on a part-time basis.
Adult Classes: Alhumdulillah, recently, the Jame'ah endeavoured to commence adult classes to accommodate the increasing need to educate the older generations of the community who ranged from those who missed out on formal Islamic education to those who were searching for a deeper understanding and study of Islamic teachings. These courses are structured to support the student's individual needs.
