Inspired by the Prophetic City of Light, The Medina promises to be a focal point of British Muslim life. The Medina will be the UK's most advanced Masjid and centre of excellence.
Just like the Prophet Muhammad (saw), was supported by the ‘Ansaar’ the 'helpers’ we are reaching out to you, to be the ‘Ansaar’ - the helpers of The Medina.
150,000 sq ft, 10 zones, one revolutionary complex
The Medina will be the UK’s only centre combining spiritual growth, charity, welfare, health and wellbeing, education, arts and culture, tackling Islamophobia, training of Imams and future leaders, and so much more.
The Medina is reflective of our collective desire to collaborate, engage, inspire and break the confines of stigma and prejudice.
The Journey to The Medina
The Medina will feature the very best that the Muslim community can offer, however we can only reach our goal with you by our side.
In Phase 1, we raised over £1 million and purchased a building in the heart of Yorkshire.
Now, with over 100,000 square feet to house “The Medina,” the next phase can begin. We have reached Phase 2, now we need you.
With your help, we can get to work on the proposed plans to turn our revolutionary vision into reality.
However, we will only be successful if every one of us accepts the challenge and is prepared to invest time, money and faith into The Medina.
A development centred around you
The Medina is a place to seek solace and peace, discover new ideas, and connect with the world.

Perched on the River Calder and the Pennines, Wakefield is neighboured by Northern powerhouses Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester but don’t be mistaken, the city may be small but it refuses to be out-shined.
Wakefield is the heart of Yorkshire. It is characteristically welcoming, and its community charm encourages diversity and opens opportunities for freedom of expression and conversation.
Located just 2 hours from Kings Cross, The Medina also lies close to the intersection of the M1 and M62 motorways, the A1(M) is to the east of the district.
