The history of the Masjid goes back over 26 years ago to 1984. A small building was purchased at 34 Francis Road, by the Grace of Allah, through a generous donation from the noble Shaykh Abdul-Aziz bin Baz (Head of Presidency of Islamic Research, Ifta, Dawah and Guidance, Saudi Arabia).

In less than 10 years the congregation outgrew the building and the committee decided to look for another building.

The current building at 80 High Road Leyton was found and purchased in 1991. An independent Waqf (trust) was setup to supervise the purchase and renovation of the building. The foundation stone of the new masjid was laid by the esteemed Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdullah al Subayyil, President of Affairs of the Sacred Mosques of Makkah and Madinah. The Masjid was completed in July 1997.

In June 2006 the Masjid purchased the land behind the current building. This has the potential of tripling the current floor space. Much work is still needed to realise the plans for the Masjid and Madrasa. We ask Allah to make this task easy.

Recently certain ex-Trustees of the masjid have caused controversy, but the orthodox management of the Trust now hopes to put that behind us and move the Community forwards in a positive fashion. We ask Allaah and then the Community to assist us in fulfilling the purpose of the Trust.
