East London

We are the Dawoodi Bohra community of East London

The Dawoodi Bohra families of East London have lived and worked peacefully in and around East London since the 1960s. 

Who We Are

The East London Dawoodi Bohras are small in number but are part of the greater one million Dawoodi Bohras across the world. Under the guidance of our leader, His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, we strive to be valuable members of society and contribute to the overall wellbeing of every individual we come in contact with in our daily lives.

His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin has instilled in us respect for all cultures and religions. This is evident in how the community regularly steps up to help people in need regardless of where they come from, and what their beliefs may be.

Our members come from diverse backgrounds, mirroring the local community in which we live. With our aim to make a positive difference to society, we are building relationships with local food banks and charity organisations and collaborating with other Dawoodi Bohra communities across the UK to support people in need.

Since 1960, the East London community of Dawoodi Bohras has grown in number and in its positive impact on society. With the support of our friends and colleagues, we aim to go even further in the future.

Our Community Centre

Formally established in 2018, the East London Dawoodi Bohra community chose the beautiful suburb of Chigwell in Essex as its home. With members spanning East London, South East London, Essex and Cambridgeshire, this was the most convenient location with welcoming surroundings.

An old Chapel was acquired and renovated for the Bohra congregation to hold regular meetings and acts of worship. In keeping with local regulations and in collaboration with our neighbours, we have managed to settle and grow here.
