The Jamia Mosque and Islamic Society of Darlington is a local community mosque located in the North Lodge Terrace area of the town of Darlington in County Durham, England. The organisation was constituted as a charity under UK law in 1982. The mosque offers worship facilities, as well as Islamic Education, and has its own telecommunications mast for calls to prayer.
In 2011, the mosque was the target of an anti-Islamic protest by the far-right English Defence League group. Three protesters were arrested by Durham Police for public disorder offences. The mosque also suffered fire damage after a firework was put through the letterbox in October 2012.
