Exeter Mosque – EMBook

Exeter Mosque was first established in 1978 and has gone on to be the South West’s first purpose-built mosque. They have been growing their organisation to meet with community needs and have recently started investing heavily into technology.

How we helped …

Goal

When provided with the task, we realised that Exeter Mosque had a very manual process on creating the monthly prayer timetables. This was putting strain on the volunteers and the overall system was very prone to human error. Thus Maghrib Media wanted to overcome these problems and create a more accurate, efficient prayer timetable generator.

Our Work

There was a positive outcome to the work carried out by Maghrib Media. We delivered a bespoke service for the mosque; creating an online booking system which allows the mosque admins to view bookings, export attendance lists and allow worshippers to book their Jummah spot. This ensured that the mosque was able to organise and deliver a service which is loved by the community, thus confirming that COVID-19 will not ruin the unity and spirit shown during Jummah prayers.

We further improved the software by adding Taraweeh bookings for them. This was a feature which was requested later. We created and tested the feature within a short period of time.

Our team kindly added a donation feature as a gesture of goodwill so that Exeter Mosque could take advantage of the generosity during Ramadan.

Outcome

During the delivery of the service, Maghrib Media continued providing early life support by ensuring very quick changes and bug fixes.

This is reflected by praise provided by the team at the Mosque: “Amazing service. Very well done, had everything we need.”

We are thrilled with this feedback and will continue providing, supporting and enhancing this service on a regular basis.

The team at Maghrib Media were very understanding of our needs as a charity and were extremely valuable to our campaign which was the most successful up to then. We hope to work again in future projects.
