On the evening of the 15th October 2014 members of our group were given a guided tour of the Madina Masjid, the Mosque on Wolseley Road in Sheffield. We were made to feel very welcome right from the start; our guides were very patient whilst we carefully photographed every inch of every room. It was also pointed out that we hold the honour of being the first photography club to have been given access to this building which is another proud moment in this group's history.
We as a group extend our thanks to the management, the volunteers and everyone in the Mosque who allowed us to take their photograph as they gave prayers. We all thoroughly enjoyed looking around the building and left with a much greater understanding of the traditions and culture of Islam.
So, without any further ado, here are some of the photos our members came home with. We have offered these photos to the Sheffield Islamic Centre Madina Masjid Trust to freely use on their website; if you would like to use these for any other purposes please contact the member who took it for permission. Let us know what you think of the building or our photos in the comments section below.

My second visit to the Mosque,and once again a very friendly welcome and an amazing building to visit. i would recommend a tour to anybody who get the chance to go.
Thank you to our Tour Guides for the very interesting tour around Sheffield's Mosque. It's a fascinating modern building that is clearly a shining example of community spirit in Sheffield.
