Obscured by controversy, The East London Mosque in Mile End,

Was opened in 1985.


With tall towers and intricate brickwork,

It’s really just a building,

And really just a mosque.


Not a place for conflict,

Not a place to argue.


A humble place to offer your prayers,

Shoulder to shoulder,

As one people, for all people.


Come together to see, that in spite of its history,

That East London Mosque is a place that is open to all.
