We would like to say a ‘big THANK YOU’ to all the volunteers and donators. With covid guidelines in place this has been an even more challenging and complex task.

Ramadhan Food Service

With the continued lockdown, GCM will be introducing three additional initiatives as part of our ongoing support project during these difficult times. These services will run throughout Ramadhan and will entail the following:

*    Hot food Iftari on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. These can be collecting from our Courtyard between the hours of 5pm and 7pm. There will also be a delivery service scheduled for the elderly and vulnerable who live alone.

*  Hot food Iftari for NHS staff at QEUH and GRI on a Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.

*   Weekly Food packs available every Monday. These can be collected from the Glasgow Central Mosque Courtyard between the hours of 5pm and 7pm. There will also be a delivery service scheduled for the elderly and vulnerable groups including those who have experienced a loss of income.

This Ramadhan will be unprecedented, with mosques closed and our normal iftari service not available.  We appreciate the difficult circumstances NHS staff are working under. And we understand the community is experiencing difficulties especially those that have lost income during this lockdown period. Therefore, we hope these measures go some way to alleviate this during the blessed month of Ramadhan.

May Allah swt make this beneficial for us all. We welcome your feedback.

Funeral Strategy

Glasgow Central Mosque have been working closely with government officials, local authorities and the NHS to understand the burial process during these difficult and unprecedented times.  We wanted to compile a policy which will allow the Muslim community to bury their members in a manner fulfilling the Islamic etiquettes.

There have been concerns raised with regards to cremation. This is not now, nor was it at any stage a possibility in Scotland due to a devolved directive protecting the rights of religious faith groups to have the choice of burying their loved ones. The recent law change in England sees England effectively come into line with the position in Scotland.

We will endeavor to guide and lead the Muslim community in Scotland through this difficult period and all we ask of you, is your support. Guidelines regarding the funeral (Janaza) process have been put together based on current directives, which may change over the coming days and weeks but we will keep you informed as appropriate.
