In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
We are a mosque and cultural centre established in 2011 and based in South Manchester, UK serving the needs of the local community.
At our mosque we offer 5 times congregational prayers, Friday and Eid prayers. We have a sisters section for the night prayers of Ramadhan.
The MICC aims to deliver to the needs of the community through services such as classes, talks and other events.
Our Friday sermons (called Khutba in Arabic) are delivered in Kurdish, Arabic and English.
The MICC caters for the needs of Muslims and non-Muslims through our programs and events. Everyone is welcome to be a part of our community.
- The name of the religion is Islam, which comes from an Arabic root word meaning "peace" and "submission."
Islam teaches that one can only find peace in one's life by submitting to Almighty God (Allah) in heart, soul and deed.
The same Arabic root word gives us "Salaam alaykum," ("Peace be with you"), the universal Muslim greeting.
- The MICC cultural centre serves as a community centre which offers a place to practice faith, activities, classes and counselling for the Muslim community.
We also serve the community in providing Friday (Jumma) prayers with the sermon (khutba) in both english, arabic and kurdish.
- We aim to deliver to the wider community through the resources available to us online.
Currently we have streaming Quran recitations from multiple recitors from accross the world, we also have the Quran in Arabic, English and Kurdish.
We also have a question and answer service for the local imaams on questions by muslims and non-muslims alike.
Over the course of the next few months we will add to this service inshAllah (God-willing).
- We run numerous classes for everyone in the community throughout the week.
Everyone is welcome and we encourage you to participate in the classes as well as tell us of what you would like to see in the future.

This week's Khutba (Sermon)
Allah SWT says in the Glorious Quran:
The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion.
So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days.
Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.Read More
