As apart of a larger project to restore England’s First Mosque, a unique wudu area has been under constructions for the past months. Alhamdullilah the new wudu space at the Abdullah Quilliam Mosque is almost complete. Already looking beautiful, however, some work is still required to finish this project. The new wudu space aims to create an environment of calmness and cleanliness which inspires spiritual readiness prior to performing prayers. The spaces created for male and female wudu areas combine real plants with marble stone tiles to create a harmonious atmosphere and a very unique experience for the worshipper.
Abdullah Quilliam Society (AQS): Just as we beautify places of Salah (prayer) to increase our remembrance, our ambition is to elevate the place where wudu is performed to raise our physical and spiritual states during this essential act of worship. By using the most hygienic materials and design to create a sacred yet sanitised space, we are not only producing a unique wudu area within Britain’s first mosque but also evoking memories of great Islamic civilisation when wudu facilities were places of beauty consisting of decorative fountains set within courtyards or gardens. This is what Sheikh ul Islam Abdullah Quilliam would have encountered in his journeys to Ottoman Turkey and Morroco.
