Ramadhan Announcement

Following the Imam’s meeting tonight, GCM will be observing the first fast of Ramadhan on Thursday 17th May, which means Taraweeh commences tomorrow night.
 
We kindly request everyone to plan their journey to the Masjid. Arrive early, car share as much as possible, park conscientiously and listen to the instructions of the stewards & volunteers.
 
Within the Masjid we request you follow the correct etiquettes by keeping noise to a minimum and keeping the Masjid clean and tidy.
 
May Allah SWT grant everybody all the spiritual benefits of Ramadhan. 
Jaz’a’kallah Khair

Tips for Ramadhan

– Fasting is not just refraining from eating, drinking and sexual desires, it is also about resisting from all types of sin big or small. This includes safeguarding the eyes, the tongue and cleansing our everyday interactions and transactions.

– Let us be particularly vigilant regarding our 5 times prayer together with our night time Tarawih.

– The noble Qur’an and Ramadhan have a special connection so lets recite as much as possible.

– Simple food means faster eating times, easier digestion, less preparation time, and best of all, more spiritual benefit by learning to control our desires.

– If we haven’t already done so, now might be good time to book holidays for the last 10 days of Ramadhan so we can perform the Sunnah of I’tikaf.

– Make lots of dua in private moments; not only for ourselves but for the entire Ummah, especially the oppressed. A fasting person’s Dua is more likely to be accepted.

– Avoid gossip whether at home, work, with friends or in the Masjid as gossip wastes away any accumulated deeds and benefit we may have gained.

– Pay your Fitrana as soon as possible, preferably before the 15th of Ramadhan, so it can be distributed to the needy prior to Eid.

GCM Progress report 2016-2018

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

In the name of Allah; the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Tomorrow’s Annual General Meeting in Glasgow Central Mosque (GCM) will signal the end of this Executive Committee’s term in office.

Attached is the Progress report: a short summary of the work we’ve been involved in this term.

It’s a privilege to have been able to serve Allah swt’s house and the community. All good is from Him and we pray He and the community forgive any shortcomings.

Unique Opportunity

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.
