News for End of Ramadan 2019

Ghiyarvi Sharif and Completion of 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 Saturday 1 June 2019. 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.

There will be a short but enlightening talk. 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.

Parking for Jumma and Eid ul Fitir

As you will be aware we have a greater attendance for the last Friday prayers in Ramadan – Jumma-tul-Widha – and for Eid ul Fitir prayers.   To keep disruption and parking problems to a minimum we would request that all locals walk to the mosque on these days, others coming from further away should car share so we can make the best use of our limited parking facilities without disturbing our neighbours.  Please note adjoining streets have double yellow and other parking restrictions so check signs to ensure that you park safely.

News about Eid ul Fitir

The first day for Eid ul Fitir is likely to be Wednesday 5th June.  If Ramadan completes 30 days it will be on Thursday 6th June.  To confirm the actual day please listen to your Swafia Azaan Radio at about Maghrib time on Tuesday 4th June.

We will also try to post an announcement on this web site at www.swafia.org.uk, or our Twitter feed at https://twitter.com/Swafia_Mosque, or send a notification on the MyMosque app. Please check after Maghrib on Tuesday.

Eid ul Fitir Namaz Prayers

Eid ul Fitir Namaz Prayers will stand at following times.  Arrive early for the talk.

First Jamaat :        8:30 am

Second Jamaat :   9:45 am

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

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

“Allaho-Akbar, Allaho-Akbar. La ila-ha ill-lal-lah. Allaho-Akbar, Allaho-Akbar. Wa-lilahill hamd.”

You should return home by a different route. Locals should walk others car share. This means we make better use of our limited parking without disturbing our neighbours.
