New Era for North London Central Mosque


The North London Central Mosque, also known as the Finsbury Park Mosque, would like to announce that we will come under new management as from Saturday 5 February 2005. 


A total of five new trustees have been selected, who will take over the management and operations of the mosque.  The transfer has been authorised by and agreed with the Charity Commission and the existing trustees. 


We have consulted with a number of stakeholders and the decision was made that the mosque will be run under a new management. 


This is being done in the best interests of the mosque, the Muslim and the wider community and to ensure that the mosque, a place of worship, serves the spiritual needs of the community in the best possible way. 


The new management will be based at the mosque as from Saturday 5 February and will be announcing their plans for the future shortly.  Given the past history linked to the mosque, we appeal to the Muslim and wider community to support the efforts of the new management and our endeavours for a positive, peaceful and engaging centre of worship.

{Invite (mankind, O Muhammad ) to the Way of your Lord (i.e. Islam) with wisdom (i.e. with the Divine Inspiration and the Qur'an) and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided.}
(Holy Quran-16:125)

{And who is better in speech than he who [says: "My Lord is Allah (believes in His Oneness)," and then stands straight (acts upon His Order), and] invites (men) to Allah's (Islamic Monotheism), and does righteous deeds, and says: "I am one of the Muslims."} (Holy Quran-41:33)

The prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "By Allah, if Allah guides one person by you, it is better for you than the best types of camels." [al-Bukhaaree, Muslim]

The prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)  also said, "Whoever calls to guidance will have a reward similar to the reward of the one who follows him, without the reward of either of them being lessened at all."
[Muslim, Ahmad, Aboo Daawood, an-Nasaa'ee, at-Tirmidhee, Ibn Maajah]
