The month of Ramadhan

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته
شَهۡرُ رَمَضَانَ ٱلَّذِيٓ أُنزِلَ فِيهِ ٱلۡقُرۡءَانُ هُدٗى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَٰتٖ مِّنَ ٱلۡهُدَىٰ وَٱلۡفُرۡقَانِۚ فَمَن شَهِدَ مِنكُمُ ٱلشَّهۡرَ فَلۡيَصُمۡهُۖ
“The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it.”
Due to reports of negative sightings of the new crescent moon in the UK and Morocco (the closest Muslim Country) we will complete 30 days of Shaban.
The first day of Ramadhan will commence on Sunday 3rd of April (from Saturday after Maghrib).
Our first Taraweeh prayer will be taking place on Saturday 2nd April after Salat ul-Isha 9.30pm.
We ask Allah SWT to make it a Ramadhan full of blessings and to accept all of our fasting and prayers.
اللهم بلغنا رمضان
O Allah, allow us to reach Ramadhan.
Ramadhan Mubarak from all at the Southampton Medina Mosque Trust

Sponsor Iftaar at Masjid

Asallam Alaykum All
Alhamdulillah after 2 years break In Sha Allah this year we will be organising Iftaar at Masjid.
Alhamdulillah we normally get around 159-200 partaking in opening their Fast at Masjid, most of these people come for salatul Asar and stay until after Taraweeh.
The Prophet (saw) said, ‘Whoever feeds a person breaking his fast will earn the same reward as him, without anything being lessened from the reward of the fasting person’. [Tirmidhi]
You can sponsor a day or two for yourself as sadaqa or Esaale Thwaab for your marhomeens or you can give whatever you want towards the cost of Iftaar.
Please get in touch with us soon if you like to contribute as spaces are limited and they do get filled fast.
JazakAllah Khayr

Monthly Gyarvi Sharif Event: Me’raaj-Un-Nabi

*Southampton Medina Mosque Trust Ltd*
We at Medina Mosque would like to invite you all to our monthly Gyarvi Sharif event on Sunday 13th of February after Salat ul-Maghrib.
Topic this month: *Me’raaj-Un-Nabi*
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings be upon him) was granted countless miracles. Amongst all these great miracles the ascension is from amongst the greatest.
Do you know how close our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings be upon him) was to Allah Almighty?
Allah Almighty says in surah 53, verses 8 – 9, ‘Then that manifestation came closer, and then he became increasingly closer (towards his beloved). So, the distance remaining between that manifestation and this beloved was only of two arms lengths, rather even closer.’ (Translation from Kanz-ul-Iman)
SubhanAllah! If you would like to learn more about this miraculous event then please join us for this special event.
Separate seating for sisters.
If you would like to make any kind of donation towards this event please contact either of the Imams or a committee member.
May Allah Almighty keep you all under his divine protection, Ameen.
