The Hanfia Ghousia Masjid is open every day of the year for people to use our prayer facilities, including all five daily prayers, and the special prayers for Ramadan and Eid.
We hold congregational prayers at specific times, which you can find in our prayer timetable. There’s a more detailed explanation of our prayer times here. These prayers typically take 10–15 minutes.
On Fridays, the special Jumuah prayer (which replaces the Zuhr prayer) is preceded by a sermon (khutbah), which takes about half an hour. From late March to late October (in the days of British Summer Time) the sermon starts at about 1:30pm; for the rest of the year it is about 1:00pm.
There are separate prayer facilities for men and women: men pray in the ground floor hall, and women in the second floor.
All areas are served by modern ablutions facilities, which include showers.
There are baby-change units in key locations.
The Adhan, which is the call to prayer, is broadcast live for each prayer. In the early morning and late night this is just over the internal speakers, plus digital radio.
All our congregational prayers, including the Friday sermons, and additional talks from the main prayer hall, are available through special digital receivers that can be purchased from our reception, There is also a live video stream on our Facebook page.
