Help Build the New Tokyo Central Masjid and Support Islam in Japan

Dear Brothers and Sisters,


Alhamdulillah, Islam today is the fastest-growing religion in Japan. To call even more people to Islam, we at the As-Salaam Foundation are building the new Tokyo Central Masjid.

Our Story

The Tokyo Central Masjid is backed by As-Salaam Foundation, which has a long and successful track record in promoting Islam in Japan. Through our sister mosque As-Salaam Masjid which was established in 2008 in Ueno, the heart of Tokyo, we have become a thriving hub for the city’s growing Muslim community.

Our Achievements

Over the years, As-Salaam Masjid has achieved the following milestones


Facilitated over 100


Hosts about 600 worshippers
every Friday at three
weekly Jumuah sessions

Open Day

Organised 9 Masjid Open Days
with more to come


Hosted over 200 community lectures, gatherings, and impactful da’wah programs

Future-Proofing Our Masjid

However, As-Salaam Masjid is now too small to accommodate our work as our community continues to flourish.

As our numbers grow, we have taken action to launch the Tokyo Central Masjid project, which will enable us to serve even more Muslims comfortably, without crowding and cramping.

Project Phases

The project is divided into two phases, with a projected completion date of 1 May, 2025. InsyaAllah.

The estimated total cost of the Tokyo Central Masjid project is US$16 million.

Amount raised to date: US$12.5 million

Phase 1


• Purchase of a site with an existing building, 5-minutes’ walk from the current As-Salaam Masjid
• Complete demolition of old existing building
• Land clearing for the new site and other associated works

Phase 2


• architectural planning
• construction and outfitting

We invite donors to contribute and help raise the balance needed of US$3.5 million.

Inshallah, your donation will help!

Your donations will be used to:


Build a larger prayer hall accommodating 1,500+ jemaah for Jumuah prayers in a single sitting


Create a dedicated space for women's prayer and community activities


Establish a dynamic museum and Da’wah center


Develop an Islamic school with a library for children and youths


Design a community events space for programs, gatherings, and more
