James Hutter: School Visit

We have, as a school, visited this Mosque for a number of years now and of the places of worship we take the Year 8's to see, this is the one they most enjoy. Parvez always makes the students welcome and they engage really well with him. The tour has an excellent balance of the students being told various things about the Mosque, coupled with ample opportunity to ask questions. It is an excellent place to visit and we look forward to coming again next year.

Rikke Christensen: school visit

I took my class to visit Leicester Central Mosque on the 6/2/18.  Our guide Parvez, was an excellent teacher. Our students all have learning difficulties and Parvez spoke in a language that met their needs. He made us feel very welcome and the students felt safe to ask a lot of questions. 

I can only recommend going to Leicester Central Mosque.

Thank you.

c.priestley: School Visit

Our School (Richard Hill Primary) visited on the 7th of November, 2017. Both the staff and the children had a brilliant time. Our guide (Parvez) was very welcoming, spoke in a manner that was easy for the children to understand, and was happy to answer all of our (many) questions. The tour was very informative, and everyone came away having learned many new things (including the teachers!). Thanks for showing us around, I couldn't recommend this enough!

Lucie Burton: SCHOOL VISIT

On 26th September I brought our school (Tydd St Mary) to visit your Mosque. I wanted to say what a wonderful experience it was for us all. We were invited and welcomed around the whole building. The children enjoyed themselves, particularly listening to Parvez. He was extremely informative and spoke at a level the children could understand about the building and the Islamic religion. Our visit was a quick one and we hope to visit again in the future for an extended time where the children could ask even more questions!


Thank you again!

Kelso Simon : "One people" group visit

Myself and my group had a fantastic morning at your beautiful Mosque.  Parvez hosted the visit with such  warmth and enthusiasm and made us all feel so welcome. I learned so much about Islam and I know I can say the same for the other members of the group. 

My group represent people from all different communities in Leicester and they have all messaged me to tell me what a wonderful morning they had and how they would love to visit the Mosque again in the future. The positivity and good spirit could be felt and the group all stated that they wish they had more time to take in more of Parvez's insightful introduction to Islam and the importance of Leicester central Mosque.  The Mosque also has a wonderful history and it was nice to also have a little Leicester history lesson with regards to the history of the Mosque. 

Thank you so much. 

Warmest regards

Suzanne Jeffreys: School Visit

Thank you so much for a very informative visit on Thursday.  The children and staff from both rural primary schools enjoyed the morning and learnt a lot.  Thank you especially to Parvez who pitched the tour at just the right level for KS1 children.  I hope that we can bring the older children from the two schools sometime as I feel it is so valuable for them to see inside a real Mosque and hear about Islam first hand.

Thank you again.

R Patel: Moat CC - Student teacher visit

The student teachers from Lincoln had an extremely insightful visit to the Leicester Central Mosque. Parvez gave the student teachers a tour of the building as well as addressing many other issues linked with being a modern day Muslim. The tour was excellent and Parvez' enthusiastic style helped the visitors to feel at ease and they were able to ask questions etc. Thank you very much.

Claire Livingstone: Our visit today

Today we brought 17 boys to your Mosque and were shown round by Parvez, who was a wonderful host. He taught the boys lots and they thoroughly enjoyed the visit because of Parvez's easy style of speaking to them which really got them on-side. I would recommend that any school group go to find out more about Islam and Muslim practices and beliefs, it really brought it to life for us.

Miss A: School visit

Our children really enjoyed their visit to the Central Mosque. Parvez, our host quickly built up an excellent rapport with the children and the staff. The tour of the mosque was done very well and children were able to ask questions which were answered back clearly and in detail which allowed children to gain a good understanding of the mosque and religion Islam. I would recommend other schools to visit the central mosque as it allows children to gain a better understanding of the place of worship and Islam. Additionally Parvez was very quick at responding to emails and arranging a visit that suited us. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Mr Patel: School visit

Children from Stokes Wood Primary School enjoyed an informative (and entertaining) visit to Central Mosque. Our guide, Parvez, quickly built up an excellent rapport with the children, allowing them free rein to ask questions throughout the tour and supporting them in gaining a better understanding of Islam. Pupils learned more through the visit than they would have done by simply reading books or watching videos. Also, learning about the religion as it is truly practised by the community helped the children to address any misconceptions that they had about the faith. We would thoroughly recommend any school to arrange a visit to Leicester Central Mosque!

Line Nyhagen: University class visit

This is the second year that Parvez and the Leicester Central Mosque Leicester are hosting visits by students on the Religion and Society module I teach at Loughborough University (School of Social, Political and Geographical Sciences). Today, more than sixty students enjoyed two very informative and fun visits that support knowledge and learning related to the lives of British Muslims in particular and also the role of religion in UK society more widely. The visits also forge valued links between the university and the wider community in which we live and work.

Thank you very much Parvez for giving so generously of your time, for giving us an unforgettable tour and for showing us your beautiful mosque.

A. Smith: Primary School Visit

10th March 2016

We brought our year group of seventy 9 and 10 year old children to visit the mosque this morning as part of our Religious Education learning on Islam.  

We cannot thank the mosque, and in particular ,our guide, highly enough. 

The trip was fantastically organised and we were made to feel extremely welcome during our visit. Our guided tour was informative, fun and totally at the right level for our learners.  

ALL of our staff members (and the parents who joined us) said what a success the trip was and how much we had enjoyed it. 

An enormous thank you to our guide who made the experience brilliant. 

From all at Glen Hills Primary School

Stuart Ward: School visit

We were fortunate enough to visit during the course of the last week to this wonderful mosque. We brought over 120 children and adults over two days. Following a last minute call to Parvez, he was able to fit us in for both days, and also made a room available for the kids to eat their lunch after the visit. Each tour lasted about an hour each day and the kids ranged from 8 to 11 years old. Parent was nothing short of brilliant. His enthusiastic yet informative and fun style of presentation was both engaging and entertaining and every single person who had the pleasure to visit was bowled over by the warm welcome we received. Truly cannot thank Parvez enough for his hospitality and for giving up his free time to show us round. The children learnt so much and couldn't wait to share their learning upon their return to school. All in all it was a really special treat. 

Thanks for giving us the time to share this special treat with the children. It will live long in the memory. 

Parvez....you're a star!

Best wishes

St Peter and St Paul Academy, Syston: School Visit

Our year 6 had a very warm welcome and extremely informative visit to the mosque today.

Staff highly praised the way Parvez talked to the children, and answered their questions and misconceptions. 

It was felt that the visit was a very worthwhile experience  in terms of consolidating the children's understanding of Islam and also helped extend their learning.


Our thanks to everyone at Central Mosque, we hope to return again in the future.
