Jamia't Us-Salam was established as a Masjid and educational institution in 1998. Initially, Islamic educational facilities were offered to approximately 150 boys. They were not only taught the basics of Tajweed but a number of classes also focused on learning The Holy Q'uran, Hadith and day to day practices of Islam.
During the early years, it became apparent that spaces were limited and applications to enrol for the institution were increasing significantly. The Masjid attracted students from all over Birmingham. The existing building had to be modernised to increase the number of classes and this increased the teaching capacity to 250 boys.
Whilst education for boys was progressing well, there were several enquiries about the provision of education for girls. As there were no other facilities in the locality and spaces were somewhat limited, in 2005, a local property was acquired solely for this purpose. Like the boys institute, demand grew with time and so the decision was made to acquire the adjacent property.
During the following years, almost 40 boys completed memorisation of the Holy Q'uran. Some of them have gone on to gain further Islamic education and graduated as Ulema. Others have attended academic universities and are now qualified professionals working in the local area.
The Institute for girls is also proving to be quite a success MashaAllah. A number of girls have embarked upon memorising the Holy Q'uran with some of them near completion. There is an annual gathering for sister's from all around Birmingham, organised by the Girl's Institute. This allow students from the institution to present short speeches and recite the Holy Q'uran to a sizeable audience.
Jamia't Us-Salam is a mosque based in the Ward End area of Birmingham in the United Kingdom. The institution offers a range of Islamic Educational classes for both male and female students of all ages, including specialist Hifz-ul-Quran with Tajweed and Q'iraat classes. Over the years, the organisation has expanded significantly to meet the demands of the local community.
Currently there are plans to replace the current site with a modernised building. (Please visit the Donations page above to find out more about Bismillah Project and how you can help to build this Masjid). The achievements of Jamia't Us-Salam have been possible with the blessing of Allah (SWT) and the Du'aas and efforts of the local community. We pray that the support continues to grow and we all strive together as a unit to build the New Masjid and earn the pleasure of Allah (SWT).
