Dar Ul Uloom Tajdar-e-Madina Islamic and Cultural Educational Centre
Registered as a place of worship, so assumed to be a masjid as well as a bookshop and madrassah. Capacity 100 is a guess.

Sufi - Bareilvi
We highlight different factional interests among Muslims according to some fairly broad mainstream categories, "Bareilvi", "Deobandi" etc.
This is euphemistically defined as the masjid's 'Theme', and you may find this contentious.
It is a point of principle among most conscientious Muslims that the community is a single entity.
While that is a noble sentiment, it is patently obvious that there are clear divisions between Muslims and between masaajid,
based on religious and ethnic differences.
While many Muslims are content to use any masjid, many others make careful choices about where to go.
And for those who would like a change, the information will help you pick somewhere different.
Any masjid is certain to have users who follow different practices,
and this is something to appreciate (unlike other religions which are unshakably denominational).
However where a doctrine dominates, that will clearly influence what is practised at that location.

Most masjids are former terraced houses or commercial premises. A small number are former derelict churches.
Since the issues of architectural styles and renovation of churches as masjids has become controversial, this website
maintains statistics on the provenance of masjid sites.
Entry in Register of Places of Worship:
Birmingham 061: 79992
Nearly 40,000 premises are formally registered under the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855,
including about 900 Muslim places of worship. There is negligible benefit in registering, it being 'permissive' since 1852.
The process dates to a time when religious dissenters were excluded from many aspects of civil life. Furthermore, the Register is massively out of date, largely from neglecting to de-register congregations' places of worship that have moved or disbanded.
The state-established churches of Britain, e.g. Church of England churches, are exempt from registration, so would add considerably to
the 40,000 listed non-conformist churches, mosques, synagogues, ashrams, gurdwaras etc.
Good (B): Well known masjid with plenty of corroborating information to support our data.
Some of our address lists date back to the late 1970s and for some of those, even the street no longer exists! So we have started to include a Confidence indicator. This is rated A
, with roughly the following meanings.
- A: Reasonably recent first hand knowledge of the masjid. (A place that is now defunct is 'A' if we've seen for ourselves it no longer exists.)
- B: Well known masjid with plenty of corroborating information to support our data.
- C: Masjid with a single reliable source of information to support our data.
- D: Several sources of information about the masjid, but none of them recent and reliable.
- E: Very limited information about the masjid, from an old or unreliable source.
- F: This place probably does not exist any longer. Or, "We've heard a rumour that there is a masjid around here somewhere."
