Central Jamia Mosque Ghamkol Sharif is a Sunni-run mosque in the Small Heath area of Birmingham, England. Construction began on 15 March 1992 in the holy month of Ramadan. Each night throughout its construction, a hafiz recited the Quran on the construction site. Building work was completed in 1996, and upon completion, it was one of the largest mosques in the country. It can fit up to 5,000 people at one time and up to 25,000 during Eid.
