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 Ramadan [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 we will complete 30 days of Shaban.

The first day of Ramadan will commence on Wednesday 14th April 2021 (from Tuesday evening).

We ask Allah SWT to make it a Ramadan full of blessings and to accept all of our fasting and prayers.

اللهم بلغنا رمضان

O Allah, allow us to reach Ramadan.

Ramadan Mubarak from all at the Southampton Medina Mosque Trust Ltd.

Restaurant donates hand sanitizer stations to Southampton places of worship

A restaurant in Botley has donated hand sanitisers to places of worship in Southampton.

Purbani Botley, a small Indian restaurant, in partnership with Global Supplies Protection, an international supplier of PPE, has donated these hand sanitiser stations to four local places of worship in and around Southampton and Botley.

These two businesses wanted to help the local community by giving something that would last a long time and benefit a lot of people.

With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, hand sanitisers are in high demand, and by placing these stations in these busy locations, they hope to raise awareness about the virus and the importance of hygiene in these difficult times.

Mask Wearing

Official Announcement by Southampton Medina Mosque Trust Ltd.

Asalaamualaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

In light of the recent announcement from the government regarding the wearing of face masks in places of worship from the 8th August.

We would kindly request all attendees of the Mosque to wear a face mask upon entering, as you will be *refused* entry if you do not have one with you.

This is now enforceable in law from the 8th August onwards and so the Mosque will not have any discretion on the matter.

As a reminder,

Please come to the Mosque with Wudhu,

Wear a face mask

Bring your own Prayer mat

Bring a bag for your shoes.

JazakAllah Khayr
