Leeds Grand Mosque (LGM), the largest mosque in Leeds with a regular congregation of well over 1200 Muslims, a dramatic increase since its humble beginning in 1994. Over the last two decades, it has developed to become a truly lively and spirited Mosque, seeking to encapsulate the very ideals on which it now thrives as opposed to being simply a place of worship. Due to its close proximity to the University, LGM has a very diverse and multicultural community; contributing to the very warm, welcoming and friendly atmosphere that the mosque is so well known for by those who visit and access its many services.
With its forward thinking, LGM now provides a vibrant platform for open discussions on social challenges and issues; is an outlet for knowledge, a playground for vibrancy and it is full of energy, passion and conviction in the servitude of Allah and a lasting symbol of belonging and identity.
We believe in the multi-faceted role it has been playing in establishing the success, tranquility and enlightenment of the Muslim community; as well as welcoming other faiths who wish to explore the true Islam and learn its core values. Here at LGM we envision to build a community, whereby the role of the Masjid serves as both nourishment and as a solution to the myriad of needs and challenges facing the community at large, as well as serving as a source of betterment of the world; and as a platform for social cohesion, integration and interaction.
Legally, the Leeds Grand Mosque is run by the MAB Charitable Trust and has has the same registered charity number as the trust: 1147031
