Press Release: Precautions on Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

Posted on 13th March 2020

Birmingham Central Mosque is taking a balanced approach to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

We are taking precautions to minimise risk of infection to users of the Mosque but are aware that the virus will inevitably be spreading over the coming weeks.

We have implemented the government's advice on prevention including avoiding shaking hands, washing hands regularly and using antiseptic hand gel.

We have made hand gel available around the mosque and increased frequency and depth of cleaning schedules.

We have advised elderly users and those with elderly relatives to avoid congregational prayers especially on Fridays.

Signs have been placed around the mosque to advise our patrons of these precautions.

As Muslims we routinely wash five times a day before prayers and we are now also encouraging use of antiseptic gel.

We have not cancelled Friday congregational prayers in line with current official policy but are monitoring the situation and awaiting further guidance from the government.

Dr. Mohammed Hanif

General Secretary

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.
