Alhamdulillah the feedback from everyone on the new carpet has been immensely positive. This was a big moment for the Muslims of Glasgow. GCM holds memories, happy and sad, for so many in our community, whether it was Nikahs, Funerals, Ramadan, I’itikaf, Eid and much more.
Many Awliya and Ulema, as well as pious people who only Allah swt knows, have prayed at GCM for almost 35 years. The old carpet therefore is a treasured part of the history of the Masjid. Its removal and the installation of the new one, was an emotional rollercoaster for all involved.
Alhamdulillah, the old carpet, steeped in history and barakaat, is not going to waste. Half of the carpet has been donated to Islamic institutions in Glasgow, to use as prayer areas.
For the second half, we have managed to cut approximately 450 individual Musullahs to a specific size and had them professionally bound, as pictured above. These will be made available for the general public for a donation of £15, to help cover the costs, allowing everyone the opportunity to keep a piece of history.
Requests will be fulfilled on a first come first serve basis and will be available from the main office at GCM.
