Muslim/Islam clubs or groups

Does anyone know of any Muslim or Islamic groups or clubs that my 8 year old daughter could join?

As an only child she gets very lonely and bored.

She goes to Brownies where they play and do arts and crafts.

I would like her to join a Muslim club or group where she can make friends, learn about Islam, socialise, do activities etc..

It would be interesting to

It would be interesting to know if there are any male and also female social events/sport activities that happen for the adult population to network and socialise. Even Islamic learning on a regular basis would be nice, do any of you know of any such things in the city?

Assalamu-Alaikum, for ladies

Assalamu-Alaikum,

for ladies there are alot of classes on various aspects of Islam at Al-Meezan, Rowan St, south-side of Glasgow.

I believe Masjid Al-furqan does various things for men (west-end)

And for both men&women (i think) there is also Andalus, which is again in the west-end

Hope this helps

Salam, Depends what kind of

Salam,

Depends what kind of thing youre looking for. 

I attend a ladies class on (Nithsdale Road, pollokshields) most friday evenings where I learn about tafseer, islam and correct my quran.  The main thing i like about it is that its not too rushed, some days can be quiet and i get the chance to ask the sisters any questions I have, which ive not been able to do in some other classes.  If you want a more personal and one on one class, this is something you'd like.  

I feel comfortable as I don't feel intimitated or pressuried into coming every week, coz some firdays i can be busy and not attend and the sisters have nevered pestered me about  "punctuality" - alhamdulillah they understand that friday can get busy and so forth.... 

It's not just classes for ladies, but they also hold classes for children 5-17yrs. My 2 daughters (10 and 14) are quite reluctant to go places and I was quite shocked that they really enjoy these classes and what they learn.  But i suppose when you're in that environment and being taught by someone a little older than yourself, you can relate to it more. 

I would suggest that you try this out and see how it goes.... 

the classes take place on fridays 7:30-9pm at 159 Nithsdale Road (next to the Madrasa Taleemul Islam) in Pollokshields.  sorry i dnt have a number..

Is there any social clubs

Is there any social clubs gearded for Muslim women where Muslim women can meet other women for socialising? As I have no extended family, do not live in the community, I feel isolated.

Alot of people have alot of relatives and family friends etc where they meet up or go to their inlaws etc or live in amoung the community.

When you do not have such netowrk, not in a married wives club, mother toddler group etc, when you are on your own, where are you suppose to meet people for friendship?

This is a serious problem. Not everyone has someone they can talk to, meet up and spend company with. If there are such facilities, where are they?

If there are old peoples group, which they meet up for general chit chat, company, socialising, then surely there should be something catered for other groups also on similar bases, or nobody thought of it yet?

For social classes... try

For social classes...

try Amina- The Muslim Womens Resource Centre

They have a few things on like leisure classes and a friendship group

Call on 0141 585 8026

I phoned Amina and the

I phoned Amina and the befriending group is only during the day on a Wednesday afternoon. As I work I cannot attend. This then still asks me, where are faciilities for Muslim working women to meet other Muslim women for networking and socialising?

I get the feeling there is none, yet the city, being the largest community in Scotland, we don't have one!

 

I am sure you must have

I am sure you must have friends?

Why not try meeting friends of friends and swapping numbers with others that you come across.

Try getting re-acquainted with old school, college, uni friends.

Try going out for a meal in a group every once in a while so this way you have something to look forward to.

There are Islamic groups that meet up in the evenings but it sounds as if you are just looking to meet up with pals.

No I do not have any friends,

No I do not have any friends, that is why I have asked here for info. All the people I have known in my time have married  and no longer keep in touch via school, uni etc. When I attended education, there were not many Muslims around.

As I do not drink etc, the non Muslim friends I had become less distant as I do not take part in those social gathering that conflict with my life style.

I will try islamic groups to learn more of Islam, but I am mainly looking at networking as every human has a desire for wanting social company. Some people just take things for granted and don't realise other peoples difficulties.

 

I came across a new group

I came across a new group called Alliance - Minority Ethnic Empowerment Network in Glasgow. They promote respect between different cultures and religions and they got volunteers from different backgrounds helping out.

Sister, if you start attending an Islamic class anywhere, even iSyllabus (www.isyllabus.org.uk) then inshaAllah you will make Muslim friends some of whom may be in the same boat as you (working similar timings, wanting to socialise similar timings, etc) and then you could work from there.

 

Be positive and you will see the many opportunities inshaAllah :)

Salam,

I was looking for the exact same thing as you, as I have recently converted to Islam and would just like to meet more muslim people but there does not seem to be much around. At least nothing that's very well known. I have just started going to Believing Women in the South Side of Glasgow to learn more about Islam but I would say it's more like classes than a social group. Still if you would just like to meet another Muslim to maybe go and have a coffee and a chat with at times I'd be happy for you to get in touch? :)

Salam Lisa, I tried asking

Salam Lisa,

I tried asking this last year of social groups to meeting new people from the post above. However, I was unsuccessful and noone got back to me on this very site. The problem I noticed is they will say go to islamic classes and meet women in the mosque etc. In those situations, you are learning and not knowing the person socially as outwith the class, they have their own lives and are busy and will if you are lucky meet up. That has been my experience.  The reason I think this, is they have their own large network and family so it's not a priority for them.

I have now moved out of Scotland and mashallah I have found a few handful of Muslim sisters who are ready to meet up on a social level, something Glasgow didn't offer me and Alhamdullilah, there are people out there who are friendly and welcoming.

It also depends what age you are believe it or not. If you are in your 20's make the most of trying to network with a wide variety of people due to being larger in number and most likely to be single and less tied down with certain commitments, whatever way possible like talks, events and especially other reverts. There used to be a place called Muslim house in the west end but I don't know if they are still there.

Unfortunately, there are cliques. Inshallah you find some friends, maybe try some networking via facebook or SUMSA, GUMSA etc.

I have been reading all the posts about social groups, I am also looking for women's social groups, I think all the women interested should contact each other and we could form our own social group:) If anyone agrees please contact me.

One thing is not enough

One thing is not enough people show interest. An idea forms, yet when it comes to things, poor turn out regardless of what it is unless it's some event run by some big wig or sponsered event where lots of people will turn up.  Before, people were interested in meeting up and a date, time venue was organised and had some interest. When the day arrived, I was the only one there and it was extremely upsetting and disappointing.

If those who want to meet, suggest first how many there are interested and then decide when and where you decide to meet up saving those who genuinely go there and noones time is wasted. Also, people will meet and click with those who they share a common interest with. If you like to club, drink or think it's acceptable then you will find that those who don't are more likely not looking for contacts of this nature. Be prepared to meet all kinds of people and be respectable but do not expect to meet those with the same values or Islamic way of life than yourself.

Maybe an event posted via facebook to get more people aware and a place where it's safe to meet up first like after salah / at the masjid to avoid any strange people turning up.

You can post umpteen things on here but from what I have realised, not much happens. The reason is not many people are strong enough to take lead and not confident especially doing things for themselves and others, lack of awareness and most importantly don't bother.

How about those interested, meet at Glasgow central masjid some time soon, after zuhur, those who want to pray can and those who don't still can meet at the masjid after salah. That will get things started instead of,  me I want to meet, yeh me too etc.

Since I have moved away, the town where I live has a few womens group all done via facebook. Not all are religious, not all are Muslim but the group is about Muslim women meeting with other women. They run a few things like small talks about health, wellbeing, knitting, reading, discussion circles, recepies anything women want to discuss.It is just ordinary women trying to network and think of what to bring in the next meeting to discuss.

Make up a group on facebook, get an interest and inshallah see how it goes from there. Maybe call it Glasgow Muslim women, Glasgow  Muslimah , Muslims in Glasgow, Scottish Muslim womens group to name a few.

It does work as I have seen here, so set up a group via facebook and inshallah you will have more people taking an interest instead of through this site.

Goodluck. Wasalam

Asalaamu 'alaikum(Peace be

That's a very beautiful thing to hear! I'm so very happy to now call you my sister in Islam! I always thought that was a beautiful experience when becoming Muslim. You believe there is only One God and Muhammad (Peace be upon him) is the messenger and once you take it into action you instantly have 1.6 billion brothers and sisters! 

 

I also recently moved from London, and of course if you need anything at all, I'm only 15 years of age however Insha'Allah(God willing) I will do everything I can by Allah to be of some benefit to you.

I have been in Glasgow for some time and looking for social groups to make friends and not just classes as they usually turn out to be, and once class is over every one continues with their own tasks and thus not much opportunity to socialise. I would be interested in forming a group where we can meet up, atleast start something and see how it goes on. I have a daughter as well so m really looking for families to socialise with do that my daughter can also find friends. If anyone is interested msg me on Facebook and then we can take it from there, you can look up for aaliya Sadfee to find me.
