Renovation / Permit status
Last updated: 24 April 2022

Alhamdulillah we finally got the permit to be a Place of Worship after we won the case at VCAT which was going on for over two years.
Part of the requirement is to build an emergency staircase from the first floor and to expand the building and build bathrooms with wudu area on the ground floor.

We need about $50,000 to commence construction. Once the funds have been raised and the construction is completed, we can reopen Melbourne Madinah.

Sheikh Sajid Umar was here recently and kindly recorded a video explaining the situation.

Alhamdulillah, when the community got together to buy this building, over 25 thousand people contributed. We need your contributions again to reach our target of $50,000.

Please donate even as low as $10 for every dollar counts.

For more information on how to donate, please visit http://www.madinahnext.org/donate/

We need your urgent help to raise these funds and reopen again!

The Madinah Next campaign

The Madinah Next campaign is about establishing a permanent Madinah in the Melbourne CBD. Why? So that the Muslims have a place they can call home, right in the city. When they're working, studying or just dropping by for some shopping. The time to do this is now, with your support, before property prices sky rocket in the city. The Madinah is run by you, for the community. Whether or not you personally frequent the Madinah, just the fact that you will be facilitating prayers for 1000s of Muslims on it's own should make everyone of us yearn to be part of this project.

We must all support this effort to have our very own mosque in the heart of the city serving the needs of both Muslims and Non Muslims wanting to learn about Islam.

  • Raymond Sabur

    Youth from all different walks of life come here, and they do feel welcome, then they start bringing their friends and a lot of them come here and leave a better person.

  • Eva Maleken

    I think that we could all agree that Melbourne Madinah has a very soft spot in our hearts, in terms of the sisterhood and the friendship that we make..

  • Munir Abdella

    The Madinah in the city is a second home for everyone and is a reminder of the original city of Madinah Al Munawarah during the time of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

  • Tahir Usman

    It's not my place, or your place, its a place to connect with Allah... Madinah was a concept of a Masjid, it's not only a masjid, it's a Masjid plus, which looks at activities for the kids, for adults, for everyone; the whole community,

  • Selam Ahmed

    Every single week when I keep coming back, I realise that it's such a priority, and if just one of the volunteers' roles drop, it would not be the same and it would not run the same, and that's how important the Madinah is..
