Supplementary notes

*The source adds the following information: "Baitul Futuh is promoted by the Ahmadiyya movement as "the largest mosque in Western Europe" based on a claim of a capacity of 10,500 worshippers. But they admit that dedicated prayer space (on which all the above masjids' capacities is based) is 4,000. In fact the prayer space is comparable only to the larger masjids of circa 3,000 capacity, hence my adjusted figure of 3,000"
