Carpet & Mihrab Installation

By the grace of Allah swt, the installation of the carpet and the restoration of the Mihrab is now complete.

We thank you for your patience during the works and thank our volunteers for their efforts over recent weeks.

The Mihrab was commissioned by a leading designer creating a bespoke design. This was built by a specialist fabricator using laser cutting technology, finished with opal flush glass allowing light to disperse. The centre piece comprises of custom-made Jerusalem stone tiles made with porcelain.

The carpet has now been laid in the main prayer hall, small prayer hall, foyer and the full basement. The carpet has been sourced from a specialist carpet maker in Turkey and is comprised of 100% wool with a weight of 4500g/m2, making it one of the heaviest carpets available.

Maintaining the heritage of the mosque has been an essential part of the upgrade hence the bespoke designs reflect the original theme of the mosque.

GCM would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in ensuring the completion of the works within 5 days, especially the Taqwa team from London.

May Allah swt make our Masjid a source of blessing and reward all those who contributed towards it.

We invite you all to visit your new look Glasgow Central Mosque.

Carpet

Alhamdulillah, we are delighted to announce the arrival of our new carpet for the main prayer hall. The installation of this carpet will complete the renovation program that has been undertaken over the last 12 months.

The carpet has been sourced from a specialist carpet maker in Turkey and is comprised of 100% wool with a weight of 4500g/m2, making it one of the heaviest carpets available.

Maintaining the heritage of the mosque has been an essential part of the upgrade hence a similar shade of green has been selected for the carpet which includes a bespoke design that reflects the original theme of the mosque.

The installation will commence on Friday 16th February with the aim to complete this in time for Jummah on Friday 23rd February, In’sha’Allah.

The entire refurbishment program is a result of the duas, efforts and financial contributions of our entire community and we express our wholehearted gratitude.

May Allah (swt) accept and reward these efforts.

Ameen
