The Al Mahdi Mosque is an Ahmadi Muslim mosque in Bradford, England. The mosque was built at a cost £2.5 million entirely from voluntary donations of British Ahmadi Muslims. The mosque was opened on 7 November 2008 by Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the current and fifth caliph of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. With a capacity of 2,000 worshippers, it is among the largest in the city. The inauguration was attended by many Ahmadi Muslims and over 300 guests. Located in Rees Way, Bradford, the mosque lies on a plateau, and therefore the mosque is visible from miles around within the city.

In 2014, the mosque was the host of BBC Radio 4's topical debate programme Any Questions?.
