To acquire immense blessings, participate in the daily gatherings after Fajr and after Maghrib/Isha.

“When you pass by the gardens of Paradise, avail yourselves of them.” The Companions asked: “What are the gardens of Paradise, O Messenger of Allah?” He replied: “The circles of dhikr. There are roaming angels of Allah who go about looking for the circles of dhikr, and when they find them, they surround them closely.” (Tirmidhi)

Community Vision

The South Norwood Islamic Community Centre (SNICC) is dedicated to fostering a strong sense of community and empowerment. Our mission encapsulates three core principles:

Building Bridges into the Wider Community

We actively engage in bridge-building efforts to connect with the broader community. This includes welcoming visitors to our centre, supporting local law enforcement, fostering relationships with other faith groups, and promoting cooperation among local Islamic centres.

Creating Opportunities for Women and Youth

SNICC fosters empowerment for Muslim sisters and youth through diverse opportunities. Our initiatives aim to nurture personal growth, community engagement, and leadership development, fostering confidence, self-expression, and a sense of belonging.

Nurturing Moral and Spiritual Growth

As an Islamic faith centre, our primary goal is to support individuals in their moral and spiritual journey. SNICC serves as a place of prayer and meditation, where people can connect with their faith and engage in religious observances.

SNICC is dedicated to advancing Islamic education and nurturing spiritual growth.

At SNICC, we offer enriching Islamic education for all ages, fostering personal and communal growth. Our children's programme promotes Islamic values and academic excellence, while our adult sessions cover theology, spirituality, ethics, and practical life skills. Join us to thrive in a supportive learning community dedicated to knowledge, enlightenment, and transformation.
