Meet the man behind Europe’s first ‘eco-mosque’
Tim Winter (@abdalhakimmurad), one of Britain’s most influential Muslims, is changing the face of mosque design in the UK. According to Tim Winter, founder of Europe’s first eco-mosque, his 1,000-person capacity project (@cambridgemosqueproject) will be ‘worth the wait’ by the time it opens to the public in spring this year.

He tells @ArabianBusiness: “Cambridge has an extremely diverse population, thanks to the presence of the university, which is a global hub attracting students from around the world.” Winter also points out that Cambridge has educated many future leaders for Muslim countries, including the current UAE Ambassador to the UK, Sulaiman Al Mazroui.
