The ISoc organises Jumu’ah prayers each week during term time, and in shaa Allah we are moving to a new venue this academic year. The new venue is the exam hall located at the new Student Services Centre located at Bene’t Street, New Museums Site, CB2 3PT in the centre of town (see the map below). The Jumu’ah sermon usually begins at 1:15 pm and the prayers finish roughly at 1:45 pm, so you have enough time to get to any afternoon lectures or labs that you may have. Although do check your inbox for weekly details on time, location and khateeb. We do also usually have lunch straight after so make sure you do come for that!
The Cambridge Central Mosque, also known as The Eco Mosque, has recently opened and is a stunning work of architecture. With a near-zero carbon footprint, The Cambridge Central Mosque is committed to sustainability, with rainwater harvesting, solar energy and green transport at the heart of its design. Located on Mill Road, this mosque offers Jumu’ah prayer all year round with first adhan at 13.00 and second adhan at 13.15.
The Abu Bakr mosque also offers two Jumu’ah prayers every Friday all year round. Here at the university, we’re lucky to have a masjid in Cambridge. Located in Mawson Road, off Mill road, this mosque serves as our link to the local community and offers our ISoc plenty of support. Talks are organised weekly on Friday evenings and day courses over the holidays. During Ramadan free iftars are provided.
