Dar Ul Isra is a mosque and community centre in the heart of Cardiff. The COVID support project was launched to help meet the needs of the community during this difficult time. Our response has 3 main arms. The first is to try and help protect those working tirelessly to protect us- the NHS frontline staff, through our PPE appeal. The second is to support vulnerable members of the community with food and supply delieveries and the third is our chaplaincy support. We want to support and guide you through these difficult times, in particular if you face the challenges of losing a loved one in this crisis.
On Monday the 16th March Dar Ul Isra took the difficult decision to CLOSE the centre.
All congregational prayers including Juma prayer have stopped until further notice. This decision was made based on Islamic and medical guidance to protect the wider community.
We are monitoring the situation daily with the view to reopening the centre as soon as it is safe to do so.
We ask you to join the Dar Ul Isra WhatsApp announcement service for regular updates by sending “JOIN” via WhatsApp to 07517393930.
In the meantime please Stay Home, Protect the NHS and Save Lives.

Remember, the mosque may be closed but your connection with Allah (God) can stay open and strong. The beauty of our faith is its simplicity and accessibility. You do not need an Imam or scholar to reach God. You do not need a mosque to pray- any clean spot will do. You can pray alone or with others.
“And when my devotees ask you concerning me, tell them I am near. I answer the prayer of those who call to me”- Holy Quran
Likewise, please remember you do not need money to give charity. As our beloved Prophet taught us even a smile to another is a form of charity. A kind act or simple word should never be underestimated.
