About Us

The road to establishing Clitheroe’s local mosque has been a lengthy one. A number of efforts have been made since the 1970’s, culminating in the successful granting of planning permission on 21st December 2006.

Clitheroe Masjid has been established as a non-denominational facility committed to preserving the traditional values of Islam, in accordance with the Holy Qur’an and the authentic Hadith and Sunnah of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw).  Sectarian, nationalist or tribal separatism will have no place here.  Our aim is to recapture the essence of what a true Masjid should be – as well as being a hub for community life in the area, it will be a spiritual haven for all people, consecrated to the worship of our one true Lord, Allah the Merciful, and dedicated to teaching Muslims to live out their faith in accordance with His wishes, and those of His trusted servant and Messenger.

The Mount is based in the Lancashire town of Clitheroe, a picturesque valley steeped in history and tradition. Complete with its very own Norman castle, Clitheroe has been the backdrop for countless changes through time.

Clitheroe is a market town situated in the heart of Lancashire’s rural Ribble Valley, approximately 35 miles north of Manchester.

The centre will be managed by The Medina Partnership.
