With your generous donation, we hope insha’Allah to repair some of the water damage in the men’s toilet, renovate the wudhu facilities and flooring work.
Since the structure was retrofitted around 2016 with exterior cladding it has mostly maintained its structural integrity. However, recently emerging damage inside the mosque due to some water leakage has caused the temporary closure of wudhu facilities.
The seated area that would normally accommodate the elderly members of the congregation is out of service.
We would like some help to bring back the amenities to working order and repair the damage to flooring and walls insh’Allah.
Every donation will make a considerable difference. May Allah reward you immensely.
عَنْ عُثْمَانَ بْنِ عَفَّانَ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَنْ بَنَى مَسْجِدًا لِلَّهِ بَنَى اللَّهُ لَهُ فِي الْجَنَّةِ مِثْلَهُ
Uthman ibn Affan reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever builds a mosque for Allah, Allah will build for him a house like it in Paradise.”

Centrally located in the UK is a small town Markfield, where The Islamic Foundation has been situated since 1990. Many travelling up and down the M1 will have no doubt stopped off at this little known mosque situated in the rural heart of Leicestershire.
The Markfield Mosque has been the hub of wonderful Eid gatherings, new Muslim retreats as well as the convenient place to pray for those commuting up and down the country.
The mosque has served as a school in its early years and now it is officially a religious place of worship. Most recently we have been granted under the Marriage Act 1949 to confer the Islamic Nikah with official marriage registration.
The mosque serves approximately a congregation of 200 for Friday prayers, both men and women and the sermons are delivered in English.
