The MWLLO works in the UK under the auspices of its parent organisation the Muslim World League in Makkah al-Mukarramah. Its office is at the 3rd floor of a 4-storey building located at the prime location in central London and is easily accessible.
The mosque is on the first floor while ladies’ prayer room is on the ground floor. The mosque is open for the five prayers (Fajr, Zuhr, Asr, Maghrib, and Isha).
By virtue of its being located in central London and being surrounded by universities, colleges, hospitals and several offices where a large number of Muslims study or work, the MWLLO provides them with free Iftar meal during the month of Ramadan. Dates are provided to break the fast with the start of Maghrib Adhan, followed by one course meal with juice after salah.
During Ramadan the MWLLO also provides Tarawih prayer facilities. This additional prayer, which is performed immediately after Isha prayer, is lead by two Hafizs of the Qur’an.
Eid prayers are also performed on both occasions. MWLLO has just one Eid prayer on each Eid occasion.
The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia is deeply saddened by the tragic bus crash that claimed the lives of six British nationals whilst taking part in the Umrah pilgrimage.
HRH Prince Mohammed bin Nawaf, Saudi Ambassador to the United Kingdom, responded immediately to the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and instructed Embassy officials to assist the victims’ families in any way possible.
