Tawheed Newcastle Islamic Centre at a Glance:
Tawheed Newcastle Islamic Centre was founded in 1998 under the supervision of the Islamic Centre of England and it has been holding Islamic cultural and educational programs to fulfil the needs of the communities living in the North East of the UK.
Tawheed Newcastle Islamic Centre is honoured to commemorate the weekly fest of Friday by holding the Supplication of Kumail a night before it and by Friday prayer and supplication of Nudba on Fridays as well as commemorating other Divine Fests during the year like: Eid al-Fitr, Eid al-Adha (Ghurban), Eid al-Mab’ath and Eid al-Ghadeer and the birth anniversaries of the Holy Prophet of Islam (SAWA) and his progeny (AS) as well as the sad occasions of their martyrdoms.
Numerous events adorn the Islamic calendar: Ramadan; the fasting season, and Muharram are just two of such auspicious and sacred occasions.
Tawheed Newcastle Islamic Centre commemorates the occasion of the month-long fast of Ramadan by holding gatherings for congregational prayers, recitation of the Holy Quran, giving lectures and providing meals for the devotees to break their daytime fast.
What makes our programs unique among many of other Islamic centres is the fact that the believers and their families from more than ten different nationalities come together and benefit from the same Lectures and recitations which are mostly held in English and Farsi and in some occasions in Arabic
Our Sunday school is held for different age groups of 5-8, 9-11 and 12-15-year-old. Each of these groups learns Quran, Islamic Jurisprudence, Islamic Ethics, Islamic Beliefs and History of Islam based on the suitable textbooks provided for their age group by Al-Mustafa International University
Having devoted teachers to teach voluntarily enables us to hold the classes in English free of charge for the students from different nationalities and cultures.
As a completion for the study of Islam in such age a complementary level studies is held on the weekend for the age group of over 15 for those who seek the more advanced level of studies of Islam which is called Pre-Hawzah course. This course has been designed by the Islamic Seminary of England and prepares the students for a deeper understanding of Islam.
On Sundays, there is also a class for mothers of the children to improve their knowledge of Islam which is necessary for parenting.
