Welcome to www.swafia.org.uk the web site for Jamia Masjid Swafia serving the public in particular the Muslims of Wakefield in West Yorkshire, England.
You will be able to find out a lot more about Swafia Mosque and its activities. It serves the local community in many ways as a centre of focus for worship, learning and as place to gather for special occasions.
It provides a place for worship for the five daily congregational prayers or Salah in Arabic or Namaz in Urdu. The main congregational Friday or Jumma prayers are attended by up to 200 people.
Jamia Masjid Swafia Jumma Prayer times are changing
From Friday 22nd January the time for both Jumma Namaz jamaats will change by 30 mins.
First Jamaat at 1:00 pm usually Urdu talk
Second Jamaat at 2:00 pm usually English talk
Please note the Jamaat will stand at above times you should arrive about 20 mins before to listen to, and benefit from talk and khutba. The time change is necessary due to the later Zhur beginning time as the days get longer.
For the young Muslims of Wakefield we hold daily Islamic classes attended by nearly 300 children.
We have regular monthly Ghiyarvi gatherings in which especially invited outside speakers give talks about Islam and its practice.
There are similar regular gatherings organised by local Muslim women.
