The Aberdeen Mosque and Islamic Centre is a registered charity (charity number: SC028038) serving Aberdeen’s Muslim community. It was founded 25 years ago by a small number of Aberdeen University students and local business-people, and was initially located in a small house beside the University. Later, two further adjacent houses were bought to accommodate the growing number of Muslim worshippers and users of the Centre. Currently, the Muslims of Aberdeen use these three small houses located side by side as their mosque for prayers.
