The Hazrat Sultan Bahu Trust is a registered charity founded in 1983 by Sheikh Sultan Fiaz ul Hassan and Sheikh Sultan Niaz ul Hassan Sarwari Qadri. At the heart of this venture was preserving and understanding the message of God as conveyed by the beloved Prophet Muhammad.
While education and spirituality remain its core ethos, the Trust has realised the potential of building dynamic and confident communities that can express their faith and knowledge in a manner that is meaningful, productive and constructive in a modern British context. The Trust established its headquarters and its first mosque in 1983 in a 19th Century three-storey building that originally housed the old Mozart Works’ piano factory in Balsall Heath, Birmingham. Since then it has developed more than 20 centres and numerous partnerships across the UK and built a national reputation for religious guidance, educational programmes and publications for the Muslim community.
HSBT is situated at the heart of Birmingham in a thriving community that is diverse in ethnicity and rich in culture and heritage. The Mosque has become not only a primary place of worship for the Muslim community but a focal point for the larger community in its entirety. HSBT has firmly established itself as leaders within the British community offering countless educational courses and community projects.
HSBT has since then, produced hundreds of Huffaz (memorisers of the entire Islamic holy book, the Qur’an) and Ulema (Scholars who have specialist knowledge of the Islamic sacred law and theology) who are now spreading the message of peace across the globe. HSBT is also the founder of many sister organisations (Birmingham Qur’an Academy, As-Siraat, Takbeeer TV and many more under its umbrella, who are now Alhamu Lillah (thanking God) extremely successful within the respectable fields they individually cater for.
