Ramadan Mubarak!

in shaa' Allaah the first fast of Ramadan will be on Friday 24th April 2020, and the taraweeh prayers will start after ishaa' prayer on Thursday night.

Due to the situation with Covid-19, there will not be any taraweeh prayers at the masjid. Please do your best to pray at home.

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.”

- Saheeh al-Bukhari
 


From Abu Hurairah [رضي الله عنه] who said: The Messenger of Allaah [ﷺ] used to give good news to his Companions with the arrival of Ramadan, he would say:

«قد جاءكم شهر رمضان شهرٌ مبارك ، كتب الله عليكم صيامه ، فيه تفتح أبواب الجنة وتغلق فيه أبواب الجحيم ، وتغل فيه الشياطين ، فيه ليلةٌ خيرٌ من ألف شهر ، من حُرِمَ خيرها فقد حُرِم.»

"Indeed the month of Ramadan has arrived, a blessed month. Allaah has prescribed fasting for you. In this month the doors of Paradise are opened and the doors of hell are closed. The devils are shackled. In Ramadan there is a night better than a thousand months, whoever is prohibited from the good in that night then indeed he has been prohibited from good."

[Collected By Al-Mundhari In Targheeb Wa Tarheeb | Authenticated By Albaani, (1/490)]


Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbali said:

"Some of the scholars said: This Hadeeth is a foundation for some people congratulating others with the month of Ramadan.
How can one not give good news to the believer with the doors of Paradise opening.
How can one not give good news to the sinful that the doors of the Hell fire have been closed.
How can one not give good news to the intelligent one with that the devils are shackled.
Where can this time period be compared to any other time."

[Lata’if Al-Ma’arif, (1/158)]
