Ramadan Start Confirmed for Tuesday 7th May

It has been confirmed that the first fast for Ramadan 1440 will be on TUESDAY 7th of May 2019 with the first Isha/Travhee prayers (namaz/salah) being offered on Monday 6th May at 11:00 pm.  No reliable reports indicate the moon being sighted so Shaban will complete 30 days.

Ramadan Mubarak to all from everyone at Jamia Masjid Swafia.

Two Isha / Travhee Jamaats at Jamia Masjid Swafia

As in previous years we will offer two jamaats for the convenience of everybody in Wakefield.

First Jamaat at 11:00 pm with the complete recitation of the Quran-e-Pak during Ramadan

Second Jamaat at 12:30 am with shorter surahs for those who can’t attend the main jamaat due to work, will finish with plenty of time for you to eat before Sehri.

There will be a short Quranic or Islamic talk after the main Travhee jamaat.  Please remind those who can’t attend the jamaat that they can still benefit from this talk as it is broadcast live on Swafia Azaan Radio.  (Contact the masjid if you need a radio).

Wakefield Ramadan Timetable

You can collect a printed copy of the timetable from the masjid that details all the times for namaz including jamaat at the mosque, and fasting times for Wakefield.

We have a larger A3 poster you can put on the wall and a smaller A6 card one for your pocket.

Download and print  your own copy or save to your desktop or wallpaper on your mobile from previous links.

Gain The Benefits of Ramdaan

We should work hard to gain the great benefits of Ramdan where Nafli prayers have the value of Fard prayers in normal times and Fard prayers have 70 times the value from other times. We should ask for forgiveness for ourselves and everybody else.  We should do dhikr and give charity,  read and try to understand the Quran-e-Pak to gain the benefits of this blessed month.

We should make a special effort to offer all our namaz with the jamaat at the mosque.

Jamia Masjid Swafia Ramadan 1440/2019 Timetable for Wakefield

The blessed holy month is here soon so start your preparation by collecting your Ramadan 1440 timetable from the mosque after Friday Jumma prayers on 3rd of May 2019.  This timetable will detail the Sehri and Ifatri times for fasting as well as Jamia Masjid Swafia Jamaat times for prayers, that apply for Wakefield and surrounding areas. If you can’t attend Jumma prayers you can off course collect the timetable at any time afterwards.

You can collect a large A3 poster for your wall and a small pocket sized A6 one to keep with you at all times.  In this way you can try to gain the maximum benefits of this blessed month by offering as many namaz/prayers with the jamaat at the masjid.  We will add a download copy here, of the timetable later in the week.

It is likely that Ramadan will start on Tuesday 7th of May with our first Isha/Travhee prayers at 11:00 pm the night before on Monday.   If the month of Shaban only has 29 days and the moon is sighted  earlier, Ramadan could start  on Monday 6th May with the first Travhee on Sunday  night.

To confirm the start of Ramadan please listen to your Swafia Azaan Radio for an announcement at about Maghrib time on Sunday 5th May.  We will also try to make the announcement on this web site www.swafia.org.uk, or send a notification in the MyMosque app, or with a message on our Twitter feed at https://twitter.com/Swafia_Mosque
