I think there are two Shia Islamic centres in Glasgow. One is run by Arab Iraqis and the other has Pakistani ethnic composition. Here is the one I used to visit. It is called a simple "Shia Ithna Asheri Islamic Centre." The postal address is:

19 Ashley Street

Glasgow

G3 6DR

The centre has no 'proper' building. A section of the residence is reserved for Islamic activities especially in Ramadan and Muharram. You can easily find the place as there is a a black standard 'alam fixed on top of the roof. All Shia, Arabs, Iranians, Pakistanis etc, gather at this centre during Ramadan. The main Muharram procession on Ashura also starts and ends here.

How to find it:

The nearest underground station is "St. Georges Cross". It's 3 minutes walk from the tube station. The centre is just off St. Georges Road which cuts the famous Great Western Road in Glasgow West End. There is a Shell petrol station just opposite the centre. Google maps will answer the rest. :D

Edit: A follower. Oops - you beat me LOL. But your have more info.

Salam,

Can you give more details about what kind of classes these are/times etc?

Also what other programmes do the Ahl Al Bait society have on a regular basis? (dua kumail? etc)

Many Thanks!

I think it is better to contact with Imambargah directly. Their management team will give you better idea about classes and also any other question which you may have.

Salam Brothers,

 

can anybody tell me if the meat products in Tesco from SHAZAN are Halal or not?

Many of the Halal Restaurants writing Halal, is it real or not need to be asked.

Do anybody knows which restaurants have real Halal food?

    • As far as I know, in that time Arabs didnt have books similar to the ones we have nowadays. There were not even enough papers so sometimes they wrote on animals' skin and sometimes just used their memory. So kitab can mean something written.
    • Is it true that isis soldiers even killed babies?
    • Remove "knowledge" & "power" from the scene.
    • If you mean about Moses speaking to God (which I probably think this was the story, though never knew the bush was not consumed), then it was a miracle. A miracle is : An extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency. That is what we call "Tawaqqu' al-mustaqbal" predicting the future, and it is haram/Forbidden to do, and the nice thing is they mostly don't work, unless it was a "wild" guess, as some call it. Though the Prophet (sawa) once predicted future events more than 1 time, and all of them came true, you interested? Again, if the "angels"(which I think you mean) were to appear they wouldn't appear from their own will, God wants them to appear. Again, God is: the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being. So God can basically break the laws, which he himself created, when he wants, as they don't apply to him.   Though angels in Islam aren't the winged angels, they are some sort of "Spirits" of  unknown nature. The word "Mala'ika" means the "heavenly" ones, or the ones who always obey. So again not the winges creatures like the Christian/Jewish thoughts. Though they could possibly lift themselves through the means/ways of aerodynamics. Only God knows.   This one happened, I think it was by Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (a), he basically puts the amputated part, on the other, and joins them together.  I have seen the name "Allah" once through a cloud, not sure if it is going to help though. Well, it is pretty hard to do so. 
    • What? That's crazy. People who think like that need self esteem, not employment.
