PIETY is worship

A major part of the centre is of course a dedicate mosque area, set aside for the five daily prayers and for the Friday Jummah prayer. Our imams are well acquainted not only with the Quran and noble Sunnah, but also fully conversant with UK culture and the particular needs and problems facing Muslims that make Islam relevant to all, especially the youth, as well as being able to articulate the religion to those outside the faith.

The centre is open for Jumah at 12:00hrs

Jummah prayers begins at 13:00hrs

The centre remains open until after Isha on Fridays.

The centre is open for prayers also on Saturday and Sunday (See prayer’s timetable)

PIETY comes with knowledge

Teaching the essentials and details of Islam, Arabic, memorisation and reading of the Quran is an on-going activity for many years. With the centre and a full time imam the scope for this has been increased. A library and homework club and controlled access to the internet are part of what PIETY provides, as well as courses for new and newly practicing Muslims, with lectures and extended seminars on a wide range of subjects.

Qur’an and Arabic School: A small voluntary fee per child per term is paid, with concessions to those who can not afford it.

PIETY is community

Community cohesion is not only a buzz word for PIETY, it is an intrinsic part of what being a Muslim in UK should be about, and part of the services PIETY provides is helping new arrivals who come to Plymouth with advice, citizenship courses, English Language and IT courses and business and enterprise start up schemes. PIETY has always been involved in Inter faith dialogue and is already a participant in the Plymouth Centre for Faith and Cultural Diversity and the famous Plymouth Respect festival. In addition to provide information and cultural and Islamic awareness training for those who help cater for the needs of the Muslim community.

PIETY helps

Care for the elderly and sick, engaging the youth, visiting those in prison and helping those less fortunate is personally and collectively part of what PIETY does. Having a centre has allowed PIETY to extend and co-ordinate these services adding advocacy and legal advice, as well as regular meetings with politicians, councillors and the Police with whom PIETY have managed through the grace of Allah, to establish excellent relations.

 

In addition to that, we organise a wide variety of activities for Muslims and non-Muslims in the area. These include activities such as weekly lessons, weekend workshops, Masjid open house, on-site programs for learning about Islam and Muslims, community service programs, etc.
