Welcome to Madina Masjid Oxford
Madina Masjid stands at a place where Muslims have been gathering together for just over three decades. The building at 2 Stanley Road, Oxford was purchased by a group of local elders and subsequently converted into a Mosque in 1984. It has since been known as Stanley Rd Mosque by the locals. It is thus one of the earliest formed Mosques in the City of Oxford.
As well as establishing facilities for the daily five prayers, the mosque also operated educational classes in the evening, covering a wide range of subjects that were attended by male and females.Madina Masjid Oxford also met the marriage and burial requirements of the young and growing muslim community. It also provided guidance for the wider non-muslim community interested in Islam and its activities.
Madina Masjid Today
Over the years, the mosque building has changed significantly. The influx of people into Oxford have brought a new population that has increased its numbers substantially.
Today Madina Masjid Oxford is a flourishing mosque made up of a range of people, families, locals, students, international visitors, older folk and young people.
