Poverty Relief

The Glasgow Central Mosque Poverty Relief project has been continuing its food service programme throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, to help those most vulnerable within our society. This has operated in an environment which is compliant with all the current regulations during this difficult and challenging period.

Alhamdulillah, since lockdown we have provided approximately 30,000 meals which have included hot meals and weekly food packs. We anticipate to increase our efforts further during the holiday period and beyond.

The Poverty Relief project is run by GCM volunteers with distribution taking place every Sunday at Glasgow Central Mosque between 1pm and 3pm.

The service is financed purely through donations, supported by the GCM. We would therefore request you to donate generously to this worthy cause.

Let Your Donations Grow. It is related from Ummul Mo’mineen Aishah رضي الله عنها from the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم; he said, “Indeed Allah does rear a date and a morsel as one of you rears His foal or calf until it (the date or morsel which has been donated) becomes like Mount Uhud.” (Saheeh Ibn Hiban in Targheeb)

Give now by sponsoring weekly food packs at £5 each, through a monthly standing order or one-off donations.

During Ramadhan GCM have delivered 2,000 (two thousand) food packs and 14,000 (14 thousand) hot meals.

This is distributed via a collection service on Monday, Wednesday & Friday.

And a door to door service runs on the same days with over 15 drivers each day delivering to:

– Elderly and Vulnerable individual households
– Hotels housing asylum seekers
– Student accommodations
– Women Shelters
– Homeless Shelters
– Queen Elizabeth Hospital
– Glasgow Royal Infirmary
– Wishaw General
– GP surgeries

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.

May Allah (swt) grant our community the ability to continue supporting such programs and Grant our volunteers the best of happiness, health and imaan.

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.
