GLMCC Annual Report 2019Zubair Akram
Alhamdulillah, it’s an honour to be able to present yet another annual report. 2019 is the year, where as a Masjid, we have seen the greatest overall growth in our services, projects and departments across the board. Allah (SWT) has allowed us, through His mercy and blessings, to greatly diversify the nature of our welfare services, educational programmes and social events. As a result, we have had an unprecedented amount of positive engagement with our community, local organisations and national media this year. We pray that Allah (SWT) accepts the efforts of those who have worked tirelessly throughout the year.
I sincerely hope this report will highlight the impact that our work has had not only on the Muslim community, but also on the wider community, irrespective of race, religion or background. As Muslims, we believe that we must show gentleness, compassion and concern towards all of humanity. We strive to uphold a high level of character, and believe that good moral character is of the finest ways to present Islam for what it is: a beautiful way of life for all.
We are privileged that at GLMCC we are able to work with a number of incredible people to further the reach of our impact and vision. Any kind of work at the Masjid, be it a couple of hours of volunteering, cleaning up after events or more senior management roles are ultimately united by a single vision – to please Allah (SWT). This shared goal serves as our ongoing motivation to continue to Inspire, Educate and Serve.
We thank Allah (SWT) for allowing us to deliver a high volume of new and exciting projects this year. We pray that He accepts the efforts of the GLMCC team, which includes tens of staff members, and hundreds of dedicated volunteers. Finally, we thank you, our community, for your unwavering support. Without you, we would not be able to do what we are doing.
