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, we welcome people of all denominations and religions so that they can see and experience the daily muslim rituals and activities carried out in a mosque. We also organise visits from the local schools so that students can experience the muslim prayer and other activities as part of their RE studies. We do however encourage visitors to respect the muslim faith and wear appropriate clothing.

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 original buildings were surveyed and it was recommended that the best option is to build a new mosque rather than renovating them as the structures were not adequate and in a dilapidated state beyond repair. Considering these facts, the design and construction process was begun in 2007 and completed in 2014 at a cost of about £1M. Most of the money was raised locally by the congregation. There is still about £100,000/- loan to be paid back to people. The new building has capacity for around 350 people with facilities for Janaza and body wash, disabled access, bicycle stands and parking for vehicles.
How To Contribute
We accept donations which are Lillah (for the sake of Allah) and also as Loans (Qarz-e-Hasna) in the form of cash or cheque.
Madrassa (Islamic School)

The same curriculum is also being offered to local residents at our Madina Madrassa and Spiritual Centre site in West Town area.
