Masjid Tooba, is a mosque in the Worsley Mesnes area of Wigan, England, run by a management committee, and is the largest mosque in Wigan. Masjid Tooba is also a registered charity (Charity Number. 518554).
The mosque is open to people of all religious affiliations, men and women, and its main prayer halls currently hold upto 300 people during a Friday service, with over 200 worshipers walk through the mosque’s doors during the multiple services held on the religious festivals of Eid. It is regularly frequented by visitors from educational institutions and community/faith groups from across Wigan.
Since the mosque’s establishment, it has become a focal point for the Wigan Muslim community, providing education for children and adults, lectures, counselling and a marriage bureau. Over the years, Muslims have used the mosque for events, meetings, lectures, studies and community and educational purposes. Many of the original founders of the mosque committee still make up the mosque management or are trustees of the mosque but as time has passed, many new innovations have been made as to how the mosque is democratically run using Islamic teachings as the basis for equal representation of all members of the community. Thus, regular meetings, annual selection and equal opportunities have meant that the running of Masjid Tooba has been as efficient as possible over the decades.
