Keeping the Heart Alive (Saturday 16th April)

Zakat & Sadaqatul Fitr (Sunday 17th April) 

This is in English and open to both brothers and sisters.

Itikaf 2022

Alhamdulillah, the opportunity to enter the Masjid as a Mu’takif for I’tikaf is now available.

Limited Availability 

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 The aim being to reach a state of mind whereby all fears, hopes and apprehensions are superseded by love, devotion, and remembrance of Allah (SWT).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 Friday 22nd April (the night of 21st Ramadhan) In’sha’Allah.

Brothers wishing to perform I’tikaf at Glasgow Central Mosque should complete the I’tikaf 2022 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.

Covid-19 Omicron Update

With the recent surge in infections of the new Omicron variant, the safety and well-being of the wider community will continue to be our priority.

The Scottish government has announced that whilst there are no social distancing measures or caps on numbers, places of worship should do all they can to create a safe environment for those attending.

We therefore urge you to follow the attached guidance and pray that Allah (swt) grants relief to all humanity and protection during this difficult time.

 

COP26 – Greening Initiatives

Glasgow Central Mosque is delighted to be part of a major Greenpeace MENA ‘Greening Mosques’ initiative, in solarising to drive down its carbon emissions, which will see Glasgow Central Mosque included in one of the ’10 most iconic Mosques’ in the world.  Other Mosques include Masjid Al Haram in Mecca, Masjid Al Nabawi in Medina,  Masjid Al Aqsa in Jerusalem, Masjid Al Azhar in Egypt and Masjid Hassan II in Morocco. 

In partnership with and funded by Islamic Relief, we will be installing 130 Solar Panels with the aim of reducing co2 emissions by an estimated 18,000kg per year, In’sha’allah.

As stewards of the earth, it is our moral responsibility to do everything we can to protect our planet and ensure it is preserved for future generations. For too long, we have overlooked this fact and it is now time to realise our obligations and act.

Today marks an important step in tackling this and ensuring that the UK’s Muslim community plays an important part in this existential battle. With more than 1,500 mosques across the country, Muslims can play a leading role in our transition away from polluting fossil fuels.

Savings generated from this project will allow Glasgow Central Mosque to fund other community initiatives to drive further reductions in carbon emissions. The Mosque is also committed to raising awareness to the local community on the importance of green energy solutions.
