Eid ul Fitir Namaz

We will have two Jamaats for the Muslims of Wakefield for Eid ul Fitir Namaz or Prayers.  The jamaat will stand at following times. Please arrive about 20 minutes earlier to listen to the talk.

First Jamaat : 8:30 am

Fitrana or Zakat al Fitir

Fitrana is payable at the rate of £5 for each person in your house and should be paid before Eid Namaz is offered.

Walk to Eid Prayers

If you are local please walk to the masjid for Eid Namaz. Others should share a car, so we can make best use of our limited parking facilities without disturbing our neighbours.

You should follow the sunnah and walk to the Masjid for Eid while reciting the takbir :

“Allahu-Akbar, Allahu-Akbar. La ila-ha ill-lal-lahu. Allahu-Akbar, Allahu-Akbar. Wa-lilahill hamd.”

Translated as : “Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is Most Great, there is no god except Allaah, Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is Most Great, and all praise be to Allaah”

You should return home by a different route.


Ghiyarvi Sharif and Khatame Quran-e-Pak

The monthly Ghiyarvi Sharif programme will be held with the completion of the recitation of the Quran-e-Pak during Travhee namaaz on Wednesday 21st June 2017. This will be the 27th night of Ramadan often believed to be Laylat al-Qadar – The Night of Power or Destiny. The programme will start after Isha/Travhee namaaz starting at 11:00 pm.

Our specially invited speaker, Humair Naseem Sahib will enlighten us with a short talk in English. You are invited to attend along with your older sons and friends to this special night which will end with the communal Dua and distribution of Tabarak.

The masjid will stay open for those wishing to offer further ibadaat.
