The Sunna Mosque in Felanitx

sunna_mosque

The new Mezquita Sunna Felanitx has been a long time in the coming, but now only very little is needed for its completion. In fact, prayers were held in the new mosque yesterday (Friday) at around 13h00 as had been for the previous two Fridays.

The Final d’Obra has not been signed yet and thus, the Permís d’Obertura is still missing. Mains water and electricity still need to be connected. But in a couple of weeks’ time the grand day of inauguration should finally have arrived, Insha’Allah.

In the meantime the rented premises in Carrer de la Mar are still being used as the local mosque during all other days. I went there a few days ago and was allowed in to take a couple of photographs. In a way, it seemed as if one was pleased about my curiosity and interest; an indication perhaps that the local folks of Felanitx seem to shy away from contacts with their Maghrebian vecinos.

The djellabahs in my photo are not an obligatory garment for conducting one’s prayers in the direction of the rising sun but are available in case one would want to wear one.

The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: April 23rd, 2009. The time was 20:06:58.

      • Mashallah thank you brother! I will be coming with wife, arriving on Monday inshallah. Would I be able to contact you if possible? I will try to stop at mosque. Jazakallah khair

  2. Assala mu alikum. Do you know if there are any mosques in the Palma Nova area, and if not, what bus do I get to calle joan mestre, 12. The directions from the bus stop/station in palma will be most helpful.
    Thanks.

    • Assala’m aleikum,
      I am sorry but I do not know of any mosque in the Palma Nova area; for sure there will be one nearby. The bus no. 5 will take you from Plaça d’Espanya in the centre of Palma to the Pere Garau area in less than 10 minutes. The imam at the mosque in Carrer Joan Mestre will be able to give you all the information you need.

    what is the nearest mosque to Alcudia> I am coming with family in 2 weeks time in sha allah. Is Friday Jummah prayer at 1 o clock ? jazakallah

    • Assalamu alaikum,
      there is no mosque in Alcúdia to my knowledge. There is a Sunna mosque in Sa Pobla, some 15 km from Alcúdia, and another one in Inca, at 26 km from Alcúdia. There is a good bus service from Alcúdia to Inca (L351), connecting both in about 30 minutes at 09h30, 10h00, 10h30, 11h00, 11h30, 12h30, 13h30 and 14h00, etc. There is no direct bus connection from Alcúdia to Sa Pobla. You would have to go to Inca on bus L351 and then go to Sa Pobla from Inca by train (T2). The combined bus/train connection would take you roughly 90 minutes, or even longer, depending on the time of the day.
      I do not know of any mosque service in the Sa Coma area. The nearest Sunna mosque would be in Manacor at 20 km. There is a bus at 09h15, 10h15 and 11h10 etc. (L412) connecting Sa Coma with Manacor in about 45 minutes time.
      Beware of pickpockets at bus queues at all times.

  5. Jazakallah and thanks very much for your reply.
    I think I will go to the Mosque in Inca as its the easier to get to.

    Can I please ask:
    When I get off the bus (l351) at Inca, how far is the mosque?
    What is the name of the road?
    Thank you and Jazakallah

    • Assalamu alaikum,
      there are two mosques in Inca, both within walking distance of the bus terminal. The first one is the Mezquita Al Fajr in Carrer de Can Rayó no. 56, at about 500 m from the terminal (map). The second one at 800 m from the terminal is the Al Sabr mosque (mezquita) in Carrer de Sant Francesc no. 65 (map2).
      Jazak’allah.

    • Assalamu alaikum,
      I have now found out that there is a mosque in Alcúdia after all. Sadly I cannot provide you with an address but once you arrive there safely you will easily find out where to go for your prayers. Jummah prayers on Friday are at about 13h45 local time. In total, there are now 48 mosques here in Mallorca.
      Jazak Allahu Khayr.

      • Salaam,
        do you know what the mosque address in Alcudia is? We are visiting tomorrow!
        🙂

      • Salaam,
        I am sorry but I do not have the address of the mosque in Alcúdia. I looked, searched and asked around but it was to now avail. I am sure you will be able to find the Sunni mosque once you are there in Alcúdia. Enjoy your holiday.

      • Jzk brother,
        anyway where are you based? if you are local I wouldn’t mind visiting you.

  6. jazakallah for your help. maash allah – 48 mosques! are ladies allowed in any of the mosques in Inca?

    • yes, there are a number of halal butchers on the island, certainly in larger towns such as Manacor, Inca and Palma. There are plenty of shops selling halal meat, in virtually every pueblo on the island.

    • Salaam aleikum, I am happy to help you but please don’t forget that I am not a travel agent. A pueblo is a village. There are many mosques in Mallorca, such as in Alcúdia, Andratx, Calvià, Campanet, Campos, Colònia de Sant Jordi, Felanitx, Inca, Manacor, Muro, Palma, Petra, Porto Cristo, Santa Margalida, Santanyí, Sa Pobla, Ses Salines, Sineu, Sóller, Vilafranca. The nearest one from Cala Mandia is either in Manacor or in Porto Cristo, depending on bus connections. Jazak Allahu Khayr.

  7. Salamalaikum brother, thanks for your help with the advice, I am sorry to take your time inshalaah this will be my first trip to mallorca .I want to arrive with as much information as possible. Would you be able to know the address of the mosque in porto cristo and manacor I will be hiring a car. Jazakallaak.

    • Salaam aleikum,
      the address of the mosque in Manacor is: Calle de Torre (between Calle Pilar and Calle Simo Tort. That is opposite of the Sa Torre sports centre).
      I do not have an address for the mosque in Portocristo, sorry. But I am sure any brother would be able to give it to you or point you in the right direction once you are in Cala Mandia.
      The distance from Cala Mandia to Portocristo is only 4 km on foot, or 7 km by car or bus.
      Enjoy your trip.

  8. Assalamu alaikum,
    Hoping you can help me – We are coming to Majorca in shaa allah in the Easter Break, but are really struggling with location of a good clean hotel. Where there is a nearby mosque. I am travelling with my elderly mum so any help would be really appreciated,
    Jazak Allah

    • Salaam aleikum,
      there are many mosques in Mallorca, I think 43 in all. These in Alcúdia, Andratx, Calvià, Campanet, Campos, Colònia de Sant Jordi, Felanitx, Inca, Manacor, Muro, Palma, Petra, Porto Cristo, Santa Margalida, Santanyí, Sa Pobla, Ses Salines, Sineu, Sóller, Vilafranca. Palma de Mallorca is the island capital and maybe it would be best to seek accommodation there for your holiday in the company of your dear mother. There are plenty of good and clean hotels in Palma. Take care.
      Jazak Allahu Khayr.

  9. Asalam alaikum . I need the address of a halal butcher or meat shop in Palma. We are staying at Marriott Son Antem. Jazak’Allah.

  10. You seem such a nice guy to take time to help all these people out. I wondered if you could tell me when women gather at these mosques and what time? I will be free to attend 15, 16 and 17th of June 2015.

    • Hello,
      thanks for the compliments. I try my best. As far as women gathering at mosques in Mallorca is concerned, it would seem that most women prefer to go Fridays at noon, but there is no set rule. Women can go at any prayer time, any day of the week, just like men. But women and men are segregated during prayer time. Here in Felanitx, the ladies gather upstairs, whilst men pray downstairs. I hope this helps, and I hope this does not come too late.

  11. Assalaamu alaykum brother,

    JazakAllah for all the information you have provided so far.

    Have you managed to find the address for the mosque in Alcudia? Also do you know of any halal restaurants in Alcudia?

    Appreciate your assistance.

  12. Selamünaleyküm. I have some questions. Who can I ask them?We live in Palma. We are searching halal meat.and A mosque Sunna for praying and learning.
