These classes will start from Thursday 27th September in shaa' Allaah

The first of Muharram was Tuesday 11th September 2018, so the 10th of Muharram will be Thursday 20th September 2018.

We are encouraged to fast the 10th of Muharram (Aashooraa') along with either the 9th or 11th in order to commemorate the day that Musa (alayhi as-salaam) was saved from Pharoah and his army.

Ibn 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) said: "The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) came to Madinah and saw the Jews fasting on the day of 'Ashura'. He said, 'What is this?' They said, 'This is a righteous day, it is the day when Allah saved the Children of Israel from their enemies, so Musa fasted on this day.' He said, 'We have more right to Musa than you,' so he fasted on that day and commanded [the Muslims] to fast on that day." [Reported by al-Bukhari, 1865] 

Ibn 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them both) said: "I never saw the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) so keen to fast any day and give it priority over any other than this day, the day of 'Ashura', and this month, meaning Ramadhan." [Reported by al-Bukhari, 1867]

 

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "For fasting the day of 'Ashura', I hope that Allah will accept it as expiation for the year that went before." [Reported by Muslim, 1976]

May Allaah help us to earn the reward of this important fast.

 

al-Hamdu lillaah, Eid-ul-Adha will be on Tuesday 21st August 2018 in shaa' Allaah.

Eid Mubaarak - taqabbal Allaah minnaa wa minkum! May Allaah accept our good deeds and yours.

Eid Prayers at the Masjid will be at :

6:30 am - Ustadh Abu Abdullah Yunus
8:00 am - Dr Suhaib Hasan
9:30 am - Ustadh Fahad Sabri

We ask Allaah 'azza wa jall to accept our good deeds from the first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah, which many scholars regard to be the best 10 days of the year. A useful guide to these blessed Ten Days can be found at http://www.islam-qa.com/en/ref/books/66#

On the day of Eid, please park your cars sensibly, or use public transport. Please arrive and leave calmly, and ensure neighbours of the masjid are not disturbed.

We have spoken to the council and in shaa' Allaah there will be some relaxation of parking restrictions on Eid day on the roads around the masjid. This means that you can use the residents parking bays in the side streets and the parking bays on the High Road. You cannot park on the yellow lines on the High Road after 7am. Note that the car park at the local shopping centre could also be used.

However, please do not park irresponsibly or dangerously, else you will still get a ticket. The Masjid cannot take any responsibility in such an event.

jazaakum Allaah khaira.

The first 10 days of Dhu-l-Hijjah are the best ten days of the year. Dhu-l-Hijjah starts on Sunday 12th August 2018. The Day of Arafah will be Monday 20th August and Eid will be Tueday 21st August 2018.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days.”

From Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There is no deed that is better before Allaah or more greatly rewarded than a good deed done in the (first) ten days of al-Adha.”

These texts and others indicate that these ten days are better than all other days of the year, with no exception, even the last ten days of Ramadaan. But the last ten nights of Ramadaan are better than the first ten nights of Dhu’l-Hijjah, because they include Laylat al-Qadr, which is better than a thousand months.

Making the Sacrifice (Udhhiya or Qurbani) is strongly recommended for the head of each household. The one who intends to do so should refrain from cutting their nails or hair during these ten days until after the eid prayer and when then sacrifice has been made.

Fasting the Day of Arafah - the 9th of Dhul-Hijjah - is an expiation for the minor sins of the previous year and for the following year, so every effort should be made to fast this day.
