The total cost of the building is estimated at 650,000 GBP. This amount will ensure that our mosque is built to a good standard which will represent the unique symbol of Islam in Eastbourne. The mosque is managed by a responsible group of Trustees and our Imam is Sheik Abdel Rahim Chbib.

We appeal to you, The Ummah, to help us build this unique mosque in Eastbourne which is a very conservative area. The Islamic Community of Eastbourne and the wider community will be eternally grateful to you  for the help in building this magnificent House of Allah. We pray Allah grant you Janna for helping in this noble task.

May Allah guide us all on the right path and make it easy for you to help us build His House to establish Islam permanently in Eastbourne.

We look forward to hearing from you for a positive reply in anticipation.

Your Brother In Islam,
