In the Name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful


The Trustees of Masjid & Madrasa al-Twhid, 80 High Road, Leyton, London E15 2BP, who have been in dispute over the running of the Masjid for a long time, had agreed in writing to submit their dispute to Nizar Boga BSc LL.B(Hons) DMA FRSPH MCIEH JP for arbitration. They have authorised him to be the sole Arbitrator of all issues and conduct the arbitration procedure as he considers fit and proper and make decision which will be final, binding and not subject to appeal in any court of law or tribunal. 


Two hearings were held at Crown House, North Circular Road, Park Royal, London NW10 7PN

At the start of the first hearing session on 10 May, Nizar asked all the Trustees to take an oath by holding the Quran in their right hand and swear by Allah to speak the truth and nothing but the truth. All the trustees complied. 



Resignations of the following trustees were offered voluntarily and pronounced without conditions. They will sign resignation documents in due course and the same will be transmitted to the Charity Commission. 

Dr. Usama Hasan
Ebrahim Patel
Nisar Ahmed
Arif Saleem


Interim Administration for 6 months starting from 17 May 2012 to 17 November 2012 was constructed and announced as follows:

1. Dr Suhaib Hasan - Chairman for the first 3 months and Vice Chairman for the remaining 3 months 
2. Mehmud Patel – Vice Chairman for the first 3 months and Chairman for the remaining 3 months 
3. Mohamed Patel – Treasurer through out the 6 months 
4. Liaqat Ali – Secretary through out the 6 months  

The following Trustees were appointed to serve in the Interim Administration for 6 months. All the 10 Trustees may be re elected under the new constitution.

5. Mrs. Nazima Shaikh
6. Mohammed Tahir
7. Raja Wali Mohammed
8. Muhammad Sethi
9. Talat Sultan
10. Zahid Ahmed

The Trustees, who were appointed during the period of dispute by both sides, will step down permanently but will be eligible for consideration as members of the new charity and administration in future.

It is my sincere desire that all the 10 Trustees will act as one body of Trust to oversee all the functions and responsibilities of managing the affairs of the mosque during this crucial period of six months which will take us pass the Ramadan, Hajj  and Olympic period and I request all the mosque users to help and support them in their individual as well as group capacity. 

During this period, I would be working closely with the trustees to bring up options for new charity scheme in which I hope to have your input. I hope to consult you regularly in person and through email. Please feel free to talk to me when I visit your mosque, or send me any feedback/comments over the interim period.
