As Faith leaders representing our Mosque congregations in Birmingham, we are shocked at the mounting humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza. We are dismayed at the inability of our local elected representatives to call and work for a ceasefire during the recent vote in parliament. This seems to be at odds with the sentiments of their constituents.

All humanitarian organisations in UK and worldwide have unanimously called for a ceasefire to allow lifesaving humanitarian aid to reach the most vulnerable and desperate, innocent civilians in Gaza.

The Muslim faith communities in Birmingham have been united in grief, prayer, and campaigning to highlight the plight of those caught up in this war.

The Quran explicitly prohibits the taking of innocent life (5:32).

For 75 years, Palestinians have endured illegal Israeli occupation, oppression, and apartheid. They have experienced attacks on their towns, cities, places of worship, and refugee camps, not to mention the thousands who have been killed indiscriminately.

We call for an immediate end to this cycle of violence and adherence to international law. Our elected representatives and the international community must play their part to end the illegal occupation of Palestine, the root cause of the conflict in the Middle East.

We call for renewed and sincere efforts for a lasting peace.

In Birmingham, we are assured by the West Midlands Police response for allowing the public to register their peaceful protests, in line with the freedom of speech and protest laws.

However, we are concerned by the approach of some Birmingham schools in not allowing a safe space for our young people to discuss their concerns and express their feelings, especially when this was arranged for the Ukraine war.

We also utterly condemn all acts of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia in Birmingham that are further fuelled by this international crisis. It is unacceptable that anyone should feel unsafe in their own neighbourhoods.

Birmingham Mosques and the faith leaders will continue to play our role in engaging our congregations in prayers, education, and campaigning to highlight the sanctity of life and respect in Palestine. We will continue to engage local and national elected representatives to play their part in ending this hostility and its impact on local communities.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Birmingham Central Mosque to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Birmingham Central Mosque we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Birmingham Central Mosque to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Birmingham Central Mosque will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Birmingham Central Mosque receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
