Manchester Central Mosque and Islamic Cultural Centre (also known as “Victoria Park Mosque”) is a mosque in Manchester, England. Sometimes referred to[by whom?] as Jamia Mosque, it is situated in the middle of Victoria Park, Manchester close to the Curry Mile. It plays a key role in Manchester's Muslim community.[citation needed] Imam and Khateeb Muhammad Arshad Misbahi and Qari Hafiz Javed Akhtar are leaders of the mosque. Qari Javed also leads taraweeh prayers in ramadan.[citation needed]

The Victoria Park Mosque began as two adjacent houses, one owned by the Syrian Textile Merchants operating in Manchester since the early 1900s,[1] and the other owned by the mainly Indian community living in the nearby areas of Rusholme and Longsight.[citation needed]

In 1971, the Jamiat-ul-Muslimeen, Manchester, commenced work on a purpose built mosque in Victoria Park and the two houses were demolished and the "new look" Mosque took its current form. Several expansions and modifications have taken place over the years.[citation needed]

This mosque acts according to the teachings of the Barelwi sect of the Indian Subcontinent.[2]
