Muhammadi Masjid was established in 1997 on land purchased where a former church once stood. Prior to that Molanan Mahmood Ahmed Mirpuri Rahimahullah would regularly travel to Nelson, from the Jamiyyah Ahlul Hadeeth headquarters in Birmingham, preaching Tawheed and Sunnah. Through his Dawah efforts, with the permission of Allah, a community was established. He then continued to encourage the small local Ahlul Hadeeth community to establish a Masjid of its own. Although he passed away before the Masjid actually opened he played a fundamental role in those tentative early days. We make dua he continues to benefit from His Sadaqah Jariyyah resulting from his efforts in Nelson and elsewhere. The original Masjid had a capacity of approximately 150 people. After a number of years the success of the local Dawah and increasing numbers of people using the Masjid called for the premises to be extended and another floor was added. The extended premises served the community for another decade or so before the congregation again began to outgrow it. The latest extension, completed in early 2017, was a major project which more than tripled the capacity of the Masjid by extending the main hall over the car park and adding yet another floor to the building. The foundation stone to this latest extension project was laid by the renowned scholar of hadeeth, Shaykh WaseeUllah Abbaas visiting from Makkah.
