Shawwal Fasting

Alhamdulillah we are pleased to make available the 2022 Shawwal timetable. An electronic copy can be viewed or downloaded below.

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

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

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 The aim being to reach a state of mind whereby all fears, hopes and apprehensions are superseded by love, devotion, and remembrance of Allah (SWT).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.

Ramadhan Food Service

As part of our ongoing support projects during these challenging times, GCM will be reintroducing its Iftari Hot Meal service throughout Ramadan.

This will run daily and can be collected from the Small Community Hall after the Maghrib Salah.

We hope this service will go some way in helping those in need during this blessed month of Ramadhan.
