Portsmouth Jami Mosque is the first established mosque and place of worship for Muslims in Portsmouth. The Mosque was established in 1972, originally at Marmion Road and due to the growing number of worshipers later moved to its present address of 111 Victoria Road North in 2002.
Portsmouth Jami Mosque is the largest Mosque in the South coast of England and can accommodate more than a thousand worshipers.
Our vision is to:
- Spread the true meaning of Islam as a religion of peace.
- Understanding the main principles of Islam
- Bring about God consciousness through the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammed (Peace Be upon Him).
Our mission is to tackle the challenges we face in today’s society through:
- Providing a peaceful and spiritual place of worship for believers
- Working closely with the wider community and different faith groups to create mutual respect and tolerance among all.
- Safeguarding young people from extremism and radicalisation through various youth programs
- Empowering the role of women in society
- Providing learning opportunities for Muslims and non-Muslims through workshops, open days and educational visits to the Mosque
- Promoting health care, fire and safety and crime prevention by working with the local authorities
Only by working together as a community and providing as much support needed, can we achieve our set goals and eventually understand what Islam really is about.
