Our Program

OUR GOALS 2017-2020

Our goal in the next 3 years will be to acquire the Mosque as well as Indonesian Islamic Centre functions.

£99,906 out of £1,589,261

There are around 150 mosques and Islamic Centres in UK. Almost all migrant communities from Muslim-majority countries have their own mosque in the UK. There are mosques managed by Malaysian, Saudi Arabian, Pakistani, Bangladesh, Somalian etc. Their views on Islam are not always the same, depending on their cultural practices.

As the country with the largest number of Muslims in the world, and with over 3000 Indonesian Muslims in the UK, until now, Indonesia has not had its own mosque. All religious activities carried out since 2003 in the building which is primarily used for residential purposes.

As awareness of the dangers of radical Islam and intolerance has increased,  more Indonesian Muslims have chosen to join IIC-London which is aligned with their Islamic beliefs.

The congregation numbers of the IIC-London is ever growing, alongside their activities. The current IIC building is no longer sufficient for the growing numbers of Indonesian Muslims.

We are now actively gathering funds in the hope to buy a larger building that has permission to host a religious community.

Unlike now, where such activities are limited, without permission to host religious communities and activities. To achieve this, in 2017 we have viewed one building which can house an Islamic Centre and mosque.  The cost of the acquisition and renovation of the building is £1.6 million or equivalent to Rp 26 billion. The expansion plans of the building costing £900,000 or equivalent to Rp 14 billion bringing the total needs of funds to £2.5 million or equivalent to Rp 40 billion.

Product and Services of the Islamic Centre :

1. Mosque

The mosque has an important role in the life of Muslims. It is not only a place of gatherings Muslims visit 5 times a day but also for Friday prayers, and other gatherings on special Islamic days i.e. Iedul Fitri, Iedul Adha etc. This room capacitates for 1.000 people.

2. Classrooms

The Classrooms function as an education centre especially for young Indonesian Muslims. Many young Muslims were born and raised in England. There will be classes for them to strengthen their Islamic values. There will be independent classes for Qur’an, Arabic and Islamic studies.

3. Library, Bookshop and Muslim Clothes Shop

A library is a treasure-house of knowledge. They are one of the main sources of knowledge so that is why having a library cannot be avoided. In recent years the internet has revolutionized the concept of libraries. Information technology now plays an important role in improving the e-library or online facilities. The existence of bookshop and selling Muslim clothes creates income for IIC.

4. Restaurant

Indonesian restaurant is one of the keys to the economic sustainability of IIC. It would be strategic for IIC to have a restaurant that provides the daily meal at the exit of the masjid. Occasionally, the restaurant can also be used to host functions, study circles, and educational dinner. London has plenty of Asian restaurants but only a few Indonesian restaurants. The combination of a mosque, education centre and restaurant,  library, a shop would be perfect.
