Qadria Trust was established as a small Masjid for the local Sparkbrook community in Birmingham (UK) in 2005, since then, as the size of the congregation grew the Masjid was expanded accordingly. There was a great need to expand the facilities as the premises became hugely under capacity to meet the demand of the community.
Currently, Qadria Trust provides supplementary education to over 200 children – with a long waiting list, employing 14 plus staff. During Jummah, despite 2 Jamaats the Masjid is overflowing. Facility for five daily prayers, weekly community gatherings, advice centre, counselling and dispute resolution services, workshops etc.
Islam has five duties, often called "The Five Pillars of Islam", performed regularly, correctly and sincerely they transform a Muslim's life.
Shahada, is the conscious and voluntary declaration of faith "La ilaha illallahu Muhammadur rasulullah" "There is no god except Allah, Muhammad (peace be upon him) is The Messenger of Allah" This declaration contains the two basic concepts of Tawhid and Risalah.
Salah (compulsory prayer) is offered five times a day, either in congregation or individually. It is a practical demonstration of faith, and keeps a believer in constant touch with his Creator. The benefits of Salah are far-reaching, long-lasting and immeasurable.
Zakah (welfare contribution) is a compulsory payment from a Muslim's annual savings. It literally means purification, and is an annual payment of 2.5% of the value of cash, jewellery and precious metals a separate rate applies to animals, crops and mineral wealth.
Hajj (pilgrimage to the House of Allah) is an annual event, obligatory at least once in a lifetime for Muslims who have the means to perform it. It is a journey to the House of Allah (Al-Kabah) in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, in the month of Dhul al-Hijjah, the twelfth month of the Islamic calendar.
Sawm is the annual obligatory fast during the month of Ramadan, the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. From dawn to sunset every day a Muslim refrains from eating, drinking, smoking and from sexual activity with his marital partner, seeking only the pleasure of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala).
