Foundation digThe majority of the earliest Muslims to arrive in Glasgow from India and Pakistan lived in the Gorbals. The area had previously attracted waves of economic migrants from both Ireland and then later, Jewish communities, with many Italians also arriving in-between this period.

The Muslims steadily outgrew their exisiting places of prayer, progressing from Oxford Street through Carlton Place and finally ending up at the present purpose built four-acre site at 1 Mosque Avenue, which officially opened to the public on 18th May 1984 at a cost of over £3m.

Jamiat Ittihad-ul-Muslimin, Glasgow Central Mosque and The Islamic Centre are Scottish Charity Number SC013142.
