Jamia Mosque is a mosque located on Banda Street, Nairobi, Kenya in the Central Business District. The mosque is one of Kenya's most prominent religious structures, and the most important mosque in the country. It was founded and first built by Syed Maulana Abdullah Shah between the year 1902 and 1906. He was a very pious man and up to today he is remembered every year by Muslims. The Mosque has since been extended since its original construction.The Current Chairman Of Jamia Mosque Committee and the MajlisAlUlama Of Kenya is Sheikh Syed Fathahuddin Thangal

The Jamia Mosque retains a classic Arabic Muslim architectural style with extensive use of marble and inscriptions from the Quran, and the traditional row of shops (including a clinic and pharmacy) down one side to provide rental income for its upkeep. It is recognisable by its 3 silver domes, and two twin minarets. It contains a library and a training institute where one can learn Arabic, introductory computing and cloth making.
