Shawwal Fasting

Observing six days of fasting during Shawwal together with the Ramadan fasts, are equivalent to fasting all year round.

Those brothers and sisters who were following the GCM Ramdhan timetable for Fajr and Sehri can now view the Shawwal timetable HERE.  A paper copy can also be requested from the Main Office within Glasgow Central Mosque.

Those brothers and sisters that followed the earlier prayer timetable during Ramadhan can continue to follow the same timetable and the GCM website for Sehri and Fajr in Shawwal.

May Allah (swt) grant us the strength and ability to keep these six additional fasts.

Ameen

Finally, SADAQAH AL-FITR (also Fitrana) is Wajib (compulsory) upon all Muslims – men, women and children – who on the day of Eid Al Fitr possess the Nisab (threshold) of Zakah. This is £4 per person and should be paid BEFORE Eid Salah.

On the day of Eid it is recommended by our Ulema to :

-Wake early for Tahajjud and Fajr
-Perform ghusl
-Wear your best available clothes
-Use Miswak and fragrance
-Eat something sweet before leaving for Eid Salaat
-Have paid Sadqatul Fitr

-When going to Eid Salaat, recite the following takbir softly

الله أكبر ، الله أكبر ، لا إله إلا الله ، والله أكبر ، الله أكبر ، ولله الحمد

Finally, we must keep the momentum which we have built up in Ramadhan going all year round with the support of Allah swt to keep us on the straight path. May Allah swt shower his mercy on this blessed day of Eid and may it be a new beginning of greater prosperity, success and happiness. And may the Noor of Allah swt enlighten our hearts. Ameen

Education Complex

“Invest in our children | Invest in your Akhirah”

For over three decades, Glasgow Central Mosque has served as the hub for Muslims across the city.

With a burgeoning population, demand has never been greater upon its resources with every effort made to provision for the complex needs of a diverse community.

As the primary centre for Islamic education within the city, Glasgow Central Mosque is responsible for providing Quran, Hifz and Alim classes for both boys and girls as well as essential learning courses. At present, over 400 students attend classes on a daily basis during term time, with an extensive waiting list of those seeking admission.

To meet this growing demand and modernise facilities, GCM propose the development of a dedicated education facility within the existing community hall. The proposal includes a two storey complex with plans for up to 20 classrooms, situated above the revamped function suite. Separate wudu and toilet facilities for students and an assembly area will enable GCM to increase the number of spaces it can offer while also complying with statutory regulation.

The cost of this project is estimated at £1.3M with £600,000 required to commence construction. A build time of 10 months is anticipated.

Donate now to partake in this project and earn a recurring reward (Sadaqah Jariyah) for you, your family or loved ones who have passed away.

The Messenger of Allah () said, “When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (for the deceased)” [Muslim]

Itikaf 2019

As we get closer to the last 10 days of this blessed month, the opportunity to enter the Masjid as a Mu’takif for I’tikaf is now available.

What is I’tikaf?

“To confine oneself in a mosque for prayers, invocations and Ibadah, leaving the worldly activities for a limited number of days”

I’tikaf is a Sunnah of our beloved Prophet ﷺ. It is related on the authority of our mother Ayesha (RA) that:

“The Apostle of Allah ﷺ observed I’tikaf in the last ten days of Ramadhan, until the end of his life. After his death, his wives continued with it.” – Bukhari and Muslim.

The purpose of I’tikaf is to seek a favourable environment in which one can get closer to Allah (SWT). This confinement and devotion distances preoccupations with worldly life; allowing one to attain inner composure, serenity and focus purely on the greater eternal reality. The aim being to reach a state of mind whereby all fears, hopes and apprehensions are superseded by love, devotion, and remembrance of Allah (SWT).

When will I’tikaf begin?

I’tikaf will begin at Maghrib on the night of 21st Ramadhan (26th May) insha’Allah.

Brothers wishing to perform I’tikaf at Glasgow Central Mosque should complete the I’tikaf 2018 Registration Form which can be downloaded here and must be submitted to the main office, 1 Mosque Avenue, Glasgow, G5 9TA. Alternatively, a hard copy is available from Glasgow Central Mosque.

Sisters can dedicate an area/room at home where they may remain for their I’tikaf.

May Allah (SWT) accept our fasting, prayers and worship during this blessed month.

Ramadhan Timetable

Alhamdulillah we are pleased to make available the 2019 Ramadhan timetable.

An electronic copy can be viewed or downloaded HERE and a paper copy can be picked up at the Main Office within Glasgow Central Mosque from Thursday 18th April, In’sha’allah.

May Allah (swt) make Sha’ban blessed for us, and let us reach Ramadhan.
