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.

In shaa' Allaah Eid al-Fitr will be on Friday 15th June 2018. Eid Mubarak - taqabbal Allaah minnaa wa minkum!

We ask Allaah 'azza wa jall to accept our good deeds from this blessed month and to help us to maintain our increased 'ibaadah after Ramadan has ended. Also, please remember the hadeeth of the Prophet (sallaAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) : "Whoever fasts Ramadan and follows it with six days from Shawwal it is as if they fasted the entire year." (Sahih Muslim)

Eid Prayers at the Masjid will be at 6:30am, 8:00am and 9:30am.

1st Prayer - 6:30am - Sh Shaqur Rehman

2nd Prayer - 8:00am - Dr Suhaib Hasan

3rd Prayer - 9:30 am - Ust Abu Haneefah Sohail

We ask Allaah 'azza wa jall to accept our good deeds from this blessed month and to help us to maintain our increased 'ibaadah after Ramadan has ended.

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, if Eid falls on the Friday. This means that you can use the residents parking bays in the side streets and the parking bays on the High Road. 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 following charities will be collecting at the masjid during Ramadan 1439/2018. Please donate generously.

Following the announcement from the Coordination Committee of Major Islamic Centres and Mosques of London, Masjid al-Tawhid is happy to announce that the first day of Ramadan will be Thursday 17th May 2018. The first Taraweeh prayer will therefore be on Wednesday night. We pray that Allaah 'azza wa jall grants us the ability to make best use of this blessed month, to complete our fasts and to worship Him in the best way we are able to.
