In shaa' Allaah the 10th of Muharram 1439H will be on Saturday 30th September 2017. Hence, it is recommended to fast on Friday 29th September (Taasu'aa) and Saturday 30th ('Aashooraa), corresponding to the 9th and 10th Muharram.

In the hadeeth narrated by al-Bukhaari (1865) from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him), who said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) came to Madeenah and saw the Jews fasting on the day of ‘Ashooraa’. He said, "What is this?" They said, "This is a good day, this is the day when Allaah saved the Children of Israel from their enemy and Moosa fasted on this day." He said, "We are closer to Moosa than you." So he fasted on this day and told the people to fast.

Also, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Fasting the day of ‘Arafah I hope Allaah will expiate thereby for the year before it and the year after it, and fasting the day of ‘Ashooraa’ I hope Allaah will expiate thereby for the year that came before it."

al-Hamdu lillaah, Eid-ul-Adha will be on Friday 1st September 2017 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 :

7:00 am - Ustadh Abu Abdullah Yunus
8:30 am - Ustadh Abu Haneefah
10:00 am - Hafiz Usman

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.

Ramadan Mubarak!

in shaa' Allaah the first fast of Ramadan will be on Saturday 27th May 2017, and the taraweeh prayers will start after ishaa' prayer on Friday night.

We pray that Allaah 'azza wa jall grants us all the ability to make the best use of this month, to worship Him with sincerity and to abstain from all which He dislikes.

Narrated Abu Hurayrah (ra): Allah’s Apostle said, “Allah said, ‘All the deeds of Adam’s sons (people) are for them, except fasting which is for Me, and I will give the reward for it.’ Fasting is a shield or protection from the fire and from committing sins. If one of you is fasting, he should avoid sexual relation with his wife and quarreling, and if somebody should fight or quarrel with him, he should say, ‘I am fasting.’ By Him in Whose Hands my soul is’ The unpleasant smell coming out from the mouth of a fasting person is better in the sight of Allah than the smell of musk. There are two pleasures for the fasting person, one at the time of breaking his fast, and the other at the time when he will meet his Lord; then he will be pleased because of his fasting.”
