Ramadan Mubarak!

in shaa' Allaah the first fast of Ramadan will be on Monday 5th May 2019, and the taraweeh prayers will start after ishaa' prayer on Sunday night.

The council has granted parking relaxation on Fridays during the month of Ramadan on 18/05, 25/05, 01/06 and 08/06 from 12:30pm till 14:30pm on Downsell Road, Etchingham Road and Frith Road ONLY.
NO PARKING on single or double yellow lines, nor on pavements or cycle lanes.
Please park considerately taking care of our neighbours. jazaakum Allaah khair.

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)]

Masjid Tawhid is pleased to announce new regular classes by Ustadh Asim Khan at the masjid.

Thursdays after Fajr Prayer - explanation of Imam an-Nawawi's classic collection "Riyadh as-Saliheen"

Fridays after Fajr Prayer - explanation of Surah al-Kahf.

 

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.
