Recent Work

Main Prayer Hall works

Maintenance

Alhamdulillah, during the last month the Main Prayer Hall has been fully plastered and redecorated.

The walls were sanded to remove the old artex coating and following this the entire area was plastered.

The Main Prayer Hall was then redecorated which included painting the wall surfaces and features as well as varnishing woodwork such as main entrance doors and bookshelves. The colours used create a warmer, modern look and are in line with the original design of the Masjid.

Roof Repair

Maintenance

Alhamdulillah, essential repair and upgrade works to the roof of the Masjid have been completed.  

Following a lengthy period of consultation with industry experts, the roots of the ongoing problems with the roof were identified.  After securing a tender, the work began in January this year and completed in April.  

LED Lighting

Maintenance

As you may be aware, we are currently replacing lighting at Glasgow Central Mosque with new energy-saving LED fittings. We have already completed the majority of works and hope to complete the remaining as soon as possible.

Bike Shelter

Welfare

We are pleased to announce that we now have bike storage facilities at GCM. 

The new bike shelter, which can store up to 20 bikes, has been installed as part of The Future is Bright project. 

We want to encourage as many people as possible to cycle to GCM which will help reduce our carbon footprint.

Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival

Faith

Glasgow Central Mosque and many other buildings around the city open their doors annually in celebration of Glasgow’s architecture, culture and heritage.

Visitors at Central Mosque enjoy guided tours, exhibitions, presentations, calligraphy and a Qur’an listening experience. 

We thank all our visitors for attending and look forward to welcoming you back anytime. 

Unable to attend?  We would be delighted to arrange a visit outside of these events.  Please contact us on 0141 429 3132 or [email protected]

Fence Painting

Maintenance

After many years of being exposed to the Glasgow weather, the paint on the perimeter fence had become chipped and exposed. A team of young and old and everything in-between was assembled, and even included friends and volunteers from local churches. They came every weekend for months and were so regular that it was even suggested that all they really wanted was more of the delicious sandwiches.

Blood Donation

Welfare

At the turn of the year, the blood banks are usually low and poor weather can make the situation even worse. Every minute of every day, someone is receiving a blood transfusion. Just three teaspoons of blood can save the life of a premature baby. NHS Scotland and Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service were invited to relieve our congregation of a pint of juice apiece.

Painting and Decorating

Maintenance

Whenever you walk past a wall or surface area, you often don't realise that it wasn't always that colour. Once it gets really bad, it becomes obvious enough. Our team of volunteers polished the brass, dusted the prayer hall, painted the lobbies and corridors, redecorated the library, varnished the doors and even created new storage space. In doing so, they had to climb great heights, bend down low, and now know of nooks and crannies that very few people have laid eyes on before.

Islam Awareness

Faith

A week-long programme seeking to highlight compatibility and mutual respect between the Muslim and non-Muslim communities within Scottish society. Such events help to create awareness, enhance mutual understanding and increase interaction and co-operation on common issues.

Poverty Relief

Welfare

One of the greatest acts of kindness is to give charity to the poor, the needy and the weak. However, in Islam, charity is also a great act of worship. We believe that it is the duty of every single Muslim to help his/her fellow human beings in their time of need, as the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:
