Spiritual Purification

Glasgow Central Mosque will be delivering a short course on Spiritual Purification. An inseparable part of Islam which has been intensely studied and meticulously documented benefiting and inspiring generations of Muslims worldwide from the early generations of Islam right up to the present era. It is the solution to many of the problems of today and an answer to the void in our lives. At the same time this subject is greatly misunderstood and frequently misrepresented. This course is designed to give you some of the answers and introduce some famous personalities in this field.

This will take place on Saturday 26th October at 6.20pm in the Small Community Hall, In’sha’allah.

Please bring your registration fee reference or make payment on the day.

The course is in English and open to both brothers and sisters (no children under 16).

This is a standalone course and does not require participation of previous courses.

Hepatitis Awareness & Testing

Glasgow Central Mosque are pleased to continue working in partnership with The Hepatitis C Trust to raise awareness and test members of the public in a drive to tackle this “hidden” epidemic.

This Friday 4th October, from 10am till 3pm, a talk and testing will be available for both males and females in the Small Community Hall. (females tested separately by dedicated female professionals).

Hepatitis C is a blood-borne virus which can cause fatal liver damage and cancer. There are around 34,500 people chronically infected with hepatitis C in Scotland. Hepatitis C is often called a “hidden” epidemic because the virus does not cause obvious symptoms and most people lack awareness of the disease. In Scotland, approximately 15,500 (45% of the total) people living with hepatitis C have yet to be diagnosed. Hepatitis C is more common in some ethnic minorities, including the South Asian community.

We encourage all to attend. If you have any questions or queries please email helpline@hepctrust.org.uk.
