Facilities for congregational prayers are available in the main hall with separate arrangements made for sisters for Jumah prayers in the community hall.


Weekly study circles for both brothers and sisters provide them with the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of all aspects of Islam. Regular mawlids in Arabic, English and Urdu to encourage spiritual enlightenment for Muslims yearning to have their hearts touched by emotional poetry regarding the attributes of Allah Most High and the perfected characteristics of His beloved Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. Seminars and Deen Intensive courses are held on a monthly basis where learned scholars are invited from around the country. Numerous conferences are arranged to mark major events in the Islamic calendar with guest speakers from around the world.


The building for Hanfia Masjid was purchased in November 2002 and numerous development projects have been undertaken including the replacement of the roof, internal decorations, construction of a mehrab and a custom designed carpet for the main prayer hall. Current development projects include state of the art toilet, wudu and ghusl facilities, 24hr prayer access and redecoration of the community hall.
