Jamia Masjid Anwar-Ul-Uloom
Jamia Masjid Anwar-Ul-Uloom
This is the front of Smethwick's impressive new mosque, still under construction, on Windmill Lane. The Jamia Masjid Anwar-Ul-Uloom Trust website makes this observation: 'The need of a mosque in Smethwick to represent the Muslims is paramount; around us in Smethwick other faiths have their places of worship in the form of Gurdwaras, Temples, Synagogues and Churches. Seeing this we propose the project of JAMIA MASJID ANWAR UL ULOOM to the public of Smethwick'. The mosque's external architecture is described as 'on a theme of a purpose built Mosque' with four minarets, a dome, window arches and religious calligraphy. The style is in marked contrast with the building opposite, reflected in the window.
