Keighley Al-Hidaayah Foundation is currently working on an ambitious and visionary project to create a purpose built an Education Centre at the heart of the Muslim community in Keighley. This new establishment will cater for the Muslim brothers and sisters, families, the elderly, mothers, fathers, the youth, our children and all those in the wider community. We aim to provide a sanctuary for prayer and knowledge that will preserve the Islamic identity, encompass the true beauty of Islam and unite us to attain success and goodness. We also believe that this centre will greatly complement existing facilities in the vicinity and meet the spiritual, social and civic needs of Muslims across Keighley and beyond. We aim to tap the Islamic community’s potential in providing services and positively contributing to the well being of the residents of Keighley.
