As last year, Masjid al-Tawhid is supporting Ar-Rahmah Welfare Organisation in Islamabad, Pakistan to provide a Qurbani/Udhhiya service for Eid al-Adhaa. Ar-Rahmah Welfare Organisation also operates an Orphan Sponsorship programme.

Ar-Rahmah Welfare Organisation hope to provide a personal and hands-on service that most other charities lack. Most charities are content to slaughter all their livestock in the more accessible large camps, rather than trouble themselves to go deep into the hills. We, through our network of schools, try to get the meat to the most inaccessible areas. There we help the poorest people who otherwise would not have meat on Eid.

Additionally, this year Al-Rahmah will be able to arrange the sacrifice not only in Pakistan but also in Syria, Burma and Afghanistan.

Alhamdulillaah, some volunteers have arranged for tahajjud prayers to be held at the masjid during the last ten nights of Ramadan. The tahajjud prayer will start at 1am and continue till 2:15am in shaa' Allaah, and will be led by our Imam Abd-ul-Ghaffar. Prayers will commence from the night of Sunday-Monday, corresponding to the early hours of 29th July in shaa' Allaah.

The masjid will be open for both brothers and sisters. 

As it is in the middle of the night, please ensure you park sensibly with minimum noise. Please enter and leave the masjid calmly, and please do not loiter around the masjid. Parents with children are requested to keep their children with them at all times, and supervise them.

Finally, if anyone wishes to volunteer to help during these nights then please contact the masjid office.

May Allaah help us to make the best use of these nights, and enable us to seek out the Night of Qadr :

Indeed, We sent the Qur'an down during the Night of Decree.
And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree?
The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.
The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter.
Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.

- al-Qur'an, Soorat-ul-Qadr (97) 

Tuesday 23rd July 2013 - after 'Asr prayer, 17:45pm

in shaa' Allaah, an Aid Convoy will be leaving for Syria on 28th July 2013 to provide much needed medical supplies and essential equipment to the thousands of refugees there. One of the volunteers at Masjid Tawhid is also travelling with this convoy.

The organisers have purchased two ambulances, which will be parked outside the masjid after 'asr prayer (17:45pm) on Tuesday 23rd July 2013. Please could you bring any good quality donations such as :
medications, unopened and unused medical supplies, medical equipment, bandages, Qurans, working toys, baby milk, nappies, diesel generators, wind-up torches etc.
Please only bring good quality items.

The ambulances will be outside the masjid for an hour. Please help in any way you can. May Allaah reward the organisers for this noble effort, and may He grant the long suffering people of Syria relief from the difficulties they are going through. 

 

Due to the different schedule during Ramadan, all sisters classes have been postponed until after Eid in shaa' Allaah. Notification will be provided when classes resume in shaa' Allaah.

The Sisters' Arabic and Tajweed classes have been suspended for now, and in shaa' Allaah will resume after the Summer Holidays.
