About Masjid Darassalaam
Masjid Darassalaam was established in 1995 to cater for the needs of the community of Peterborough in general and Muslims in particular. Current Muslim population in Peterborough is estimated at around 25,000. Following the success at Darassalaam and to meet demands in the West Town area of Peterborough, we purchased and established the Madina Madrassa and Spiritual Centre on Midland Road in 2014.
Since it is a public place, weu00a0welcome people of all denominations and religionsu00a0so that they can see and experience the daily muslim rituals and activities carried out in a mosque. u00a0We also organise visits from the local schools so that students can experience the muslim prayer and other activities as part of their RE studies. u00a0We do however encourage visitors to respect the muslim faith and wear appropriate clothing.

At such a sensitive time, our masjid has the facilities to make the burial of your loved ones as stress free as possible. We have ghusl facilities on site and our imams are available to perform Janazah prayers.
Masajid are the focal point of Muslim life. As we continue to meet the needs of the community, our challenge is to provide comfortable and adequate facilities for both current and the next generation of worshippers. The building has capacity for around 700 people with facilities for Janaza and body wash, disabled access, bicycle stands and parking for vehicles. Keeping the building running and maintained comes at costs, your generous donations are what we rely on to continue providing all these vital facilities to our community.
