The mosque is closed due to Coronavirus restrictions but we will still be holding the monthly Ghiyarvi Sharif for Shabe Barat. No members of the public can attend but we will try to livestream the programme on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/masjidswafia/ so you can watch at home and also listen live on Swafia Azaan Radio. The programme will take place after Maghrib at 8:00pm on Wednesday 8 April 2020.
Mufti Fiaz Maqsood Madni Sahib will recite from the Quran, read Naat, give a short speech about the great importance of this night and what nafils and other ibadaats we can do in the home. There will be Zikar, Durood-o-Salam ending with a special Dua.
The hadiths tell us that we should offer Nafli Namaaz, recite the Quran, perform Zikar, read Salaam, and make Dua on the night of 15th of Shaban (that is the night between the 14th and 15th day) and fast during the day on the 15th. On this Shab-e-Barat, we are told that doors of mercy and forgiveness are thrown open by Allah (subhan wa tallah). We are told we can be pardoned if we sincerely repent for our sins and seek forgiveness from Allah (swt).
We are told that we should offer the Salat-ul-Tasbih namaz every day if we can, but at least once in a life time as Allah (swt) will forgive our sins if we do.
Read details of how to offer Salat ul Tasbih in the home by yourself.
