Welcome to the official website of Masjid Umar in Nottingham, United Kingdom. “Masjid” is the Arabic term used to denote the Muslim place of worship. This Masjid is named after one of the four rightly guided caliphs of Islam “Umar” May Allah be pleased with him. The contents of this website are intended to present a true reflection of Islam in consistency with the last testament to mankind – the Qur’an and teachings of the final messenger of Allah (Arabic term for God) and the seal of the prophetic tradition; Muhammed, May the Peace and Blessings of almighty Allah Be Upon Him (PBUH).
Islam literally means peace and/or total submission to the will of almighty Allah. Islam intends to reunite mankind to worship the creator through oneself and God in accordance with the prescribed teachings of the Qur’an and the tradition of the last messenger to mankind (PBUH).
