Green Lane Masjid and Community Centre has been nominated to win the ‘Masjid of the Year’ award given by The British Muslim Awards 2020.

On Friday 31st January, in Manchester, some of the most accomplished and influential Muslims will gather to celebrate the 8th British Muslim Awards. Three hundred remarkable British Muslims are shortlisted as finalists after hundreds of nominations across the country.

The award exists to recognise a wide range of achievements from inspiring individuals and organisations.

The ceremony commemorates those who battle negative stereotypes by being unapologetically themselves and taking up space across a spectrum of industries.

The staff work extremely hard to remain forward thinking and creative in its ways to support Muslims and non Muslims.

Chair of Trustees, Mohammed Saeed, commented,

To be nominated as finalists for the British Muslim Awards, is humbling. Our appreciation is to Allah the Almighty, we seek His acceptance and protection in our work.

The British Muslim Awards 2020 presented by Trusted Utility Consultants and Muslim Global Relief are organised by Oceanic Consulting. The awards showcase the strength of the British Muslim community, their impact on our culture and achievements over the last year.

CEO Irfan Younis said,

The British Muslim community is one to really be celebrated and talked about. They’re a community of amazing achievements, skilled entrepreneurs, leadership, business acumen, social mobility and inspiring role models who have consistently gone from strength to strength.

Green Lane Masjid humbly accepts the nomination and looks forward to another year of serving the needs of the community and aspiring to achieve more in the service of Islam.
