The Islamic Center of England-London (ICEL) was founded in December 1995, and opened officially in November 1998.
According to the website, the center, in common with other Islamic organizations in Europe, wishes to provide spiritual guidance for the Muslim community at large, and also wishes to cater for the social, cultural, educational and recreational needs of members of the community – especially women and the next generation.
The Centre’s other main objective manifests itself in its sincere effort to disseminate authentic knowledge about Islam and to provide non-Muslims with a better and clearer understanding of Islam.
ICEL seeks to build bridges with the society at large and establish closer ties between peoples of different faiths and cultures all over the world.
