Masjid Al Husayn, Leicester

Recommended Posts

Yes sister, you could go to Masjid Al Husayn, Leicester.

The brother above posted its a Khoja mosque without realizing you may not know who the khojas are. First of all, in Islam mosques are for Allah swt and not associated by people or groups. So while its true that you may encounter this wodring many times that this is a Khoja mosque, this is a Pakistani mosque, this is an Irani mosque etc., know that in Islam mosque is only for Allah swt and since mosques are also used as a cultural centers (nothing wrong with this), one or the other kind of ethnicity congregate there and hence they gets titled.

Although I'm not Khoja but most Khoja people are twelver Shia like the most of us here on SC, ethnically belonging to a particular geography and language from modern day India and Pakistan and all are revert Muslims from two, three, or more generations back. Most of the khoja people I know are very business like people which also reflects in the business like dealing in the mosques that they populate and manage. Since you are going from a revert angle to Shia Islam, this particular mosque would be a perfect place for you. Let us know when you officially say your shahada. I assume in your heart and mind, you already are a Muslim.

That sounds wonderful, thank you for your clarification. In the heart yes I am a Muslim al hamdulilah but I would like to make a public declaration of my faith. :D

    • At one of these meeting, is it possible to ask, listen beloved friends, I have a question. This verse in the quran, النَّبِيُّ أَوْلَىٰ بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ مِنْ أَنْفُسِهِمْ ۖ  [Shakir 33:6] The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, 
      [Pickthal 33:6] The Prophet is closer to the believers than their selves,
      [Yusufali 33:6] The Prophet is closer to the Believers than their own selves, What is your understanding, since we are gathered here for a Unity meeting, lets really unite and learn from each other. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his progeny) used it, as a question at Ghadir Khum and asked  "Then the Messenger of Allah continued: "Do I not have more right over the believers than what they have over themselves?"   People cried and answered: "Yes, O' Messenger of God." "For whoever I am his Leader (mawla), 'Ali is his Leader (mawla)." No Muslim disagrees till this point?  So, this should be a easy thing for you, only thing you are asking,  in which capacity do you see the Prophet Muhammad( peace be upon him and his progeny) as Mawla?  What is your understanding of " Greater Right " or as per the verse 33:6 "greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, " You are only reciting the Qur'an and asking for their valued opinion and understanding.  Why would this not be possible?
