Swafia Isha Jamaat Time Change

Isha Jamaat at 7:15 pm

Please note the new time for Isha Jamaat at 7:15 pm from Monday 2nd of December until the end of January.

The time is being changed to allow students from our second group to take part. We also encourage the fathers who collect their children at the end of class to attend a little bit earlier, so they can offer their Isha namaz with Jamaat gaining the extra benefits of prayers in Jamaat.

You can check the Beginning and Jamaat times for any Namaz / Prayer on the Swafia website at any time. Today’s times are shown in the side bar on the left. If you are on a mobile and don’t see the side bar just click on the menu button – the three horizontal stacked lines – on the top right corner of the screen to expand the side bar.

Masjid Timetable App now working better

If you use the Masjid Timetable app to access Swafia Prayer times you may have seen problems in the last few weeks in the Android version. The times on the Daily Timetable Screen sometimes were not updating properly.

These problems seem to be resolved now with the Daily Screen and Widget showing the correct times. You may need to update to the lastest version of the app in the Play store and “reload” Swafia data to see the changes.

Details and update at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.masjid.timetable

You may need to “Reload” Swafia data in the Masjid Timetable app (Select Masjid button and choose Swafia) or use the “Refresh” button in the My Mosque app (on Daily Prayer Times screen) to see the changes for Isha Jamaat to 7:15 pm.

What is it ?

Swafia Mosque is inviting everyone to our open day.  You may be religious or follow no religion. If you have never seen inside a mosque now is your chance.  All are welcome to come and look around the mosque and ask questions about Islam. You can go on a short tour to see some of the features of the mosque. It will be a general Fun Day of other activities and stalls to raise funds for a very worthy cause.

Maybe you are curious about what goes on inside a mosque. How do Muslims pray ? Why does the mosque have a dome or minarets ? What do Muslim kids learn in the madrassa ? Why do Muslims fast ? What do Muslims say about Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) ? Now is your chance to get your questions answered directly by local Muslims in Wakefield.

It will also be a general Fun Day with a bouncy castle for children, henna tattoos, face painting, and food stalls. Other organisations will have information stands. We’re hoping it will be a sunny day so you will be able to make use of the ice cream van.

This year we will be raising funds for a new initiative, Iqra Senior Sisters. As people become older especially as pensioners they may find it more difficult to get out of the home to meet people. Iqra Senior Sisters is especially aimed at senior ladies and will provide activities and support for regular gatherings to meet and socialise so they feel less lonely stuck at home. Some of the proceeds from stalls as well as general donations, and proceeds from the Tombola will go towards this worthy cause, so please be generous. 

The funds raised at our last Open Day in 2018 were added to sums collected at Friday prayers at Swafia and other Wakefield mosques to get a grand total of £1885 which were donated to a very important cause at Wakefield Hospice.

We will be providing free tea and coffee and you will be able to sample some food.

Though the day is being hosted at Swafia Mosque we have the help and support from other mosques in putting this day on as a Wakefield Mosques Community Open Day. 

You can see some photos from last years Open Day below.

Some details on our posters below.

When and where will it be ?

It will be held between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm on Saturday, 3rd August 2019. Entry is free and you are welcome at any time during these times. It will be held at Swafia Mosque which has distinctive minarets and a dome.  It is on Park Hill Lane off Park Lodge Lane, behind the Ambulance and Fire Stations on Brunswick Street on the edge of Eastmoor in Wakefield. Please use the postcode WF1 4NJ in your Tom Tom sat nav or navigation app.

You can get directions using Google Maps to Park Hill Lane, Wakefield, WF1 4NJ.
